The Fading of Human Civilization

Ben G. Yacobi

Journal of Philosophy of Life Vol.9, No.2 (November 2019):22-31




Human civilization is fading away, as humans are gradually transforming into a different kind of beings based on technology that will essentially redesign their nature. This process is difficult to monitor or control while being preoccupied with everyday life and survival. At present, this transformation relates to technology as an extension of the human mind and body. However, with time, humans will progressively incorporate technology into their bodies through various types of enhancement, so that human functioning will be increasingly based on technology rather than biology.
