Extensions of consciousness

There is no reason to think evolution is at or has a limit. Culture as well as biology generates extensions to consciousness. As culture expands awareness expands. This can be accomplished by passing on hard won knowledge and understanding. It can be accomplished by inventions that expand the senses. Scientist are designing direct interfaces to human neural circuits to help the handicapped. In time such devices will provide capacities that do not now exist. They have the potential to extend consciousness.

Telecommunications and the Internet have created a limited form of global consciousness. The Internet is a global nervous system that is becoming ever more important to commercial transactions. Eventually we will have direct neural connections to the Internet in a way that will vastly expand the information we have available through what appears to be direct thought and apprehension. Similarly we will be able to be in direct and immediate `telepathic' contact with any other person who is open to such communication with us. These capabilities will transform both our capabilities and our consciousness. It will feel different to be a human being. At the same time we will be creating a global consciousness. This consciousness will reside in the Internet and all the devices and beings connected to it.
