Decided to hook our scratch built DNA sequencer, 3D printer and AI quantum computing system to our home IoT network.
Overnight, the network asserted it is now the full embodiment of the Gaia planetary web and we are merely nodes in it.
Welcome to the new, posthuman reality.
Dr. Hawking, thanks for the warning. Good news, AI is not as bad as we thought but it has surpassed us more quickly than we imagined!
We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.
