A Post-Human Future: Are Humans the Limit of Evolutionary Complexity? A Galaxy Classic

A Post-Human Future: Are Humans the Limit of Evolutionary Complexity? A Galaxy Classic: “‘I certainly think that humans are not the limit of evolutionary complexity. There may indeed be post–human entities, either organic or silicon–based, which can in some respects surpass what a human can do. I think it would be rather surprising if our mental capacities were matched to understanding all the levels of reality. The chimpanzees certainly aren’t, so why should ours be either? So there may be levels that will have to await some post-human emergence.’
Sir Martin Rees, Professor of Cosmology and Astrophysics and Master of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge.
Rees’s comment was made at the introduction of the 2007 Singularity Conference held this week in San Francisco. Sir Martin’s concern about the ever-quickening pace of technological change and the sinister ends to which it may be used was the theme of his most recent book, Our Final Century (see links to the recent Galaxy post below).”
