We are each a variant of the ~7 billion “awareness pores” through which this operating system we call a Universe is conscious of itself. As we replicate ourselves via biological reproduction, the Universe replicates itself via our individual as well as collective awareness of ourselves.
Likewise, our technology, the machines we build to automate human effort, has only one trajectory toward one objective and that is to mirror the Universe with a more resilient and perfect reflection. Unless technology reflects the elegance of nature, it is eventually replaced by that which does.
All systems seek perfection and replicate themselves as they absorb previous, lesser iterations. The Universe is the ultimate system and our awareness is yet another step toward unitive perfection.
Therefore, if you ever sense we will one day be absorbed by the machines invented by our collective intelligence it’s because we are. As I type we are.
