A fascinating discussion today with Dion Chang from Flux Trends about the continued mechanisation of the economy and its implications for humanity.
Since the industrial revolution machines have greatly expanded on the capacity of people; from a age when most people were farmers and lived harsh brutal lives, to now where the internet exists, communication is global and the stars are within reach, we are pondering the existence of aliens and searching actively for them with powerful machines!
With the rise of AI, this process of mechanisation has evolved into robots that have begun to replace human jobs, industries such as mining are replacing as much human labour as possible, we discuss the impact of this.
But further on, what is the ”meta” impact of this process to humanity and the way we live; carried to its inevitable conclusion when mechanised units dominate the global economy, how will we as a whole adapt, will it be a utopia or Terminator brought to real life.
