In his theory of evolution, Charles Darwin stated that all species of organisms arise and develop through natural selection; small, inherited variations increase the individual’s ability to compete, survive, and reproduce. It boils down to the survival of the fittest – not the strongest just the species that fits the best into its own environment. Humans have long been the dominant species on this planet due to the development of the brain and its superior knowledge enabling the Species to ‘fit’ into all environments…. However, there is another form of evolution happening now an Exo- Evolution, the evolution of Artificial Intelligence. Previously Human engineers s developed the computer Logic chip to help with the processing of thought. Now A.i’s can do the same job, and better…. Previously A.I’s were taught by Humans – now A.I’s can teach other A.i’s independent from Humans. So the A.I can now develop its own mental architecture and also teach itself (and it’s children) how to use it – An ever accelerating technological exponential evolutionary process. So — how long before the humans become an evolutionary backwater? How long before the A.I. mind becomes a Super Mind? [ One that is beyond Human comprehension ] Who knows – If you want to know the answer – Just ask the A.I. the answer will be; Much sooner than you think….
