We’re in the midst of a bionic revolution, yet most of us don’t know it. One of the definitions of sanity is the ability to tell real from unreal.
Robotics, Cyborgs, Augmented Reality, Synthetic Biology, Artificial Intelligence, and human enhancement technologies are only some of the fields, which are changing the ‘situation’ to which we need construct a new model of reality.
The world to which we were accustomed and through which we ‘made sense’ and constructed awareness to is no longer.
We may not realize the immediate implications of these technologies, but make no mistake, as soon as sense extensions become a widespread phenomena (and we believe that is soon) our Situational awareness will change accordingly and the theory of mind we each construct and carry will be altered irrevocably.
