In my first post on future consciousness, I spoke of what may be coming into play in the next phase of our evolution. What’s at stake is what it means to be human. We may be changing into something new – whether better or worse remains to be seen. The problem is that technology is accelerating everything and the ultimate outcome is obscure. We know that it is changing our climate. There are more subtle changes. Technology is wiping out time and space, eroding the difference between real, unreal, and surreal.
And think for a moment about this. An unknown (‘dark’) energy is increasing the rate of expansion of the universe; but something analogous is happening, as technology creates an explosion of information, which in turn is altering our consciousness. It looks to me like a spectacular synchronicity of cosmos and consciousness.
