I really didn’t know what to title this, but here we go. I was watching a few time-lapse videos about the proposed “future” of the universe and thought to myself, what would ensure humanity or any sort of “life” to survive, even a million years. I thought about artificial intelligence and the point it surpasses human intelligence, could they not just rid humanity (seeing themselves as superior beings and/or responsible “caretakers of life for eternity” due to surpassed knowledge/intuition) and replicate? Should we be concerned? Would part of a solution be transcendence into some sort of digital life-form accompanying A.I.?
Sorry for the lack of appropriate terminology, it’s a bit of a late night grind and this popped into my head. Thanks!
