Our brain is the most powerful computing device on the planet. So, let’s compare it…
- Our brain is a satellite whooshing around the Earth at 16 thousand miles an hour!
- A decent personal-computer’s CPU is a supersonic jet traveling at three thousand miles per hour.
- A computer’s hard disk conversing, aka interfacing, with a computer CPU, is a performance sports car traveling at 110 miles per hour. Vrooooom!
- But the new and improved SSD drive that we almost all have now, this interface is a jumbo jet, flying faster than its spinning-disk predecessor. It goes 600 miles per hour!
- So, we have the top, and some other stuff…
- A human interfacing with a computer, any computer, is a turtle ambling…
Two ends of this system we are all a part of, like it or not, are primed and ready to go. And as soon as Mr. Turtle can fly, well, I’ll bet we are going to see some serious shit.
Human evolution is about to springboard. To interface with our machines, we won’t use a clunkity ol’ mouse and keyboard forever. And the moment there is a faster, more direct interface is complete between mankind and machine—life as we know it is over.
A better life you ask? Perhaps not better, perhaps not worse, just very fucking different. Can you, I, or any of us change what humans will become? No, this ride is on rails. Unstoppable, unpreventable. And the train is about to collide with a singularity.
