Storyline

Humanity is facing a turning point - the next evolution of the human mind. Will this evolution be a hybrid of man and machine, where artificial intelligence forces the emergence of a new human species? Or will a wave of new technologists, who frame themselves as consciousness-hackers, become the future torch-bearers, using technology not to replace the human mind, but rather awaken within it powers we have always possessed?

Excellent and Enlightening

SuperSapiens beautifully unfolds the premise and promise of what's on the horizon as a result of our fascination and propagation of technology. Is turning a blind eye an option? Does the marriage of technology and humanity have a life of its own or can those who have the long view get to steer the vehicle to a win-win and the promise of a greater future.
