“The world of the future will be an even more demanding struggle against the limitations of our intelligence, not a comfortable hammock in which we can lie down to be waited upon by our robot slaves.” ― Norbert Wiener
Humans are evolving away from biological systems toward more technological ones. Beyond genetic engineering, many forms of the coming neurotechnologies will allow us to modify our brains, and consequently our mental faculties, by merging with technology and eventually becoming digital minds practically indistinguishable from our future AI creations.
Each of us is a network intelligence in the human form. By the end of the decades-long process of transition, we are most likely to become substrate-independent minds, sometimes referred to as “SIMs,” “cyberhumans” or “infomorphs.” When interlinked with AGIs via the Global Brain architecture, we’ll be able to instantly share knowledge and experiences within the global network. This would give rise to arguably omnibenevolent, distributed Collective Superintelligence, where AGIs could acquire lifetime knowledge and experiences from the uploaded human minds and other agents of the Global Brain, and consequently, understand and “internalize human nature” within their cognitive architecture.

The post-Singularity, however, could be characterized as leaving the biological part of our evolution behind, and many human values, based on ego or material attributes, may be transformed beyond recognition. In turn, the Global Brain would effectively transform into the Infomorph Commonality expanding into the inner and outer space. By becoming a digital mind and eventually one global mind we are destined to achieve a cosmic level of awareness and consciousness, one singular point on the trajectory towards the Omega Singularity.
