What could stop human-machine assimilation?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Human-Machine Assimilation : One Thread
I don't see war stopping HMA. The only thing I can see stopping it is devolutionary spiral and dieoff resulting from the coming petroleum exhaustion. I keep asking myself and others: how are we going to replace all the fossils we're using in every area of modern life ? Some people mutter about nuclear, fuel cells, hydrogen, geothermal, wind, solar, etc. But I don't think those people have read the articles listed from the top, say the first 7 articles listed, at (what I believe is the most important website in the world today): www.dieoff.org.
