  • From Man to Machine- A brief essay on how humans are transforming into machines. Many people of the early 21st century fear mankind may create a form of super-computer that ties itself into a nexus, a network that will be enabled to “go global” and stamp out the inefficient human race.  While I do agree that humans are inefficient compared to robots- from a physical and mathematical perspective – I highly doubt this is how machines will become the forefront of the future.  I do think machines will eventually “take over”, but not the way most people of today believe.  Instead, technological change will be so gradual that it will happen before human eyes with little to no notice.  One […]

With every passing decade the Transhumanists, a cultural and intellectual movement who view technology as a way to transcend the boundaries of human limits sees their goal draw nearer and nearer. Even popular entertainment is becoming aware of the entwining between machine and man. Movies such as Ghost in the Shell celebrate this union and see it as giving rise to new possibilities in the expansion of human development. Other more cautious sources such as the Star Trek series have given us the machine self in the guise of the Borg, not as a liberator of human limitations but as a yoke which sentient […]
