Perhaps we can evolve from the “I” to the “we”, not just the collective “we” but an embodied “we”. Humans have physically evolved through our new appendage, the hand phone. When are we going to implant a chip in the body? We can’t live without a hand phone anymore, people are constantly using them, even while walking. With a chip implanted we might become a truer collective with the ability to access all information through the wifi cloud.
Indeed we are developing a neurological chip which might evolve us by our own hand. Elon Musk’s Neuralink has created a chip that will be able to fix blindness and Quadriplegia by copying the neurological communication across broken pathways. Neuralinks main purpose is to provide the brain direct access to the technological cloud, not to be left behind by Artificial Super Intelligence. Sure we won’t fix the intelligence gap, only the knowledge gap. We might augment our intelligence with an AI version of self. I think we’ll just have to accept human stupidity. AI might emphasize the best practical qualities of humanity. We could allow it to take care of all physical needs and be left to focus on the Arts and humanities leaving human organisation to the glorified calculator, AI.
