When you study, talk, and write about future trends, you obviously cannot escape AI. The question is, where is this all going? I have been pondering this for a while. With no answers. Until I saw a post by Gerd Leonard about Sadhguru.

The book pendulum

This blog is based on over 60 books I have read. It does none of these books any justice. All these books swing on the pendulum of artificial versus natural. You will find some of the links in the blog. If you want to read the books about books, let me know, and I will be happy to send them to you. Let me know what you think.

Inspiration and optimism

I am inspired by Neal Ashers´ science fiction, heartened by the end of Mo Gawdat´s book “Scary Smart”, and optimistic when you start combining this with other technologies such as quantum computing and synthetic biology (to name just a few) and the developments in technology abstraction (making complex technology as simple and intuitive as LEGO), allowing for a future Cambrian explosion of innovation. Solving all the problems we are currently facing and more.

Transhumanism and technosocialism

This brings you into the realm of transhumanism and technosocialism, potentially offering us a bright and definitely interesting future.
