Don’t stand on the way of the noble moods,
And if you stand, step away.
Last few decades brought humanity to the crisis that was predicted long ago, although the predictions were so vague that there is no surprise in our absolute ignorance and helplessness in facing the upcoming calamity.
Homo sapiens sapiens became itself due to the processing power of its neural network. It is just a matter of pitiful odds that human neural network emerged in a situation, which made it prone to kill. Wherever and whenever we see humans, we see the killing/murder/destruction stories. One may argue that humans are also creators, but what do they create? Look at the Euclidian geometry of human settlements and then try to find at least some similarities in the living nature. They create either other humans or deadly dangerous instruments. Humans dissect life with their (in)famous golden section and fracture it with newly invented fractals.
Sigmund Freud, being thrilled with the realities of world war, had to agree with existence of “mortido”, “death instinct”. Dr. Freud associated this instinct with muscles, and here he was wrong. Neural tissue, the brain itself is the organ that bears the abomination of ultimate destruction. Let us not spend much time in proving this statement here as the very core of Freudian semantics is doubtful and is used here rather as a simplifying metaphor. Neurons are full of deadly impulses and only their narcisstic charge is a warrant of human race survival for a time being.
The consequences and effects of such a misfortunate legacy of humankind as projected on the current development trends are more interesting and worth of further speculative thinking.
Throughout their history brain cells looked for any opportunity to join each other, to form a network of every possible complexity. Certainly, direct cell-to-cell connection was always the best choice, but if not possible, everything else goes: voice, pheromones, light, touch… Media is not important; it should convey the message from one neuron to another, preferably fast and clear.
These days we found ourselves in a situation when neurons discovered new and extremely powerful medium for signal transfer. It is a direct neuron-to-neuron radio connection. Now when I write these words it is still a science fiction, but Moore’s law still works leaving us hopeless. Neurons will find a way to create molecular-size transmitters/receivers to ensure straight and reliable contact for neural networks that until then were being divided by bones, muscles, space and even time.
We who live now have to accept this narcisstic drive of our neurons. There is no sense to stay on their way for fusion. Or rather to oppose neurons is a granted chance to be killed in a fast and furious way. As far as the history of Homo sapiens sapiens is known, there were many attempts to prevent its neurons from fusion. Angry men armed with sticks and stones smashed from the surface of the planet all those who dared to challenge human neurons.
Therefore, the optimal choice for every smart businessperson, investor, contractor, politician or civil activist is to support human neurons in their struggle for ultimate fusion in a multitrillion neural network. And beware you all - skeptics, traditionalists and fools! You will not enter the Heavenly Kingdom of unified bioneural network of humanity. “Death-to-stupid” is another name of our brain cells.
