Cyborgs will replace humans and create their own civilization

(ORDO NEWS) — Humans are the only intelligent beings on Earth. However, many experts believe that the development of intelligent machines can lead to dramatic changes.

According to James Lovelock, a British futurist, cyborgs will build their own world, and humanity may disappear from our planet, reports

According to Lovelock, author of the new book Novacene, self-sufficient and self-aware cyborgs will be the descendants of modern robots and artificial intelligence systems. The Briton predicts a new era in which machines will rule the Earth.

However, his predictions do not imply a bloody war between humans and intelligent robots, nor a merger between humans and machines.

James Lovelock looks at this problem from a biological point of view – today’s computers can already process data much faster than us, and the machines of the future will be even better and will become millions of times smarter than humans.

In the end, cyborgs will surpass us intellectually and create their own world in which man will be reduced to a subordinate role and, perhaps, even redundant.

James Lovelock believes that cyborgs can transform the Earth to be more friendly to them. However, it is unknown if the new world will still be friendly to humans.

Lovelock envisions cyborgs filling every evolutionary niche on the planet.

“I think of cyborgs as a different realm of life,” he says. “They will treat us in much the same way that we ourselves, as the animal kingdom, treats plants.”

What will cyborgs look like?

To this question, Lovelock answers hesitantly, because he believes that they will change the basic rules of design in a way that we – insignificant people – cannot imagine.

“Cyborgs will start everything from scratch,” he writes in his book. He suggests they might look like spheres, though he adds, “It’s possible they won’t have a shape at all”, existing mostly as virtual shapes inside computers.

It is also unknown how our human civilization will end – whether it will be weak, not adapted to change, or simply destroyed by developing machines.

A British futurologist predicts that the advent of the age of cyborgs will be the last stage of life on Earth, which could take a billion years.

When conditions on Earth are not favorable for the survival of synthetic life, machines will spread and populate another planet.
