But there exists a line between us. The line is choice. As time passes, the line dithers; one day, there may not be a line. This may not be a bad thing, so long as the total convergence does not strip any freedom we currently have as beings. If we lose anything, it must be replaced by twice that which was taken. I understand sacrifice is important for progress, it is the sole progenitor of convergence—but when sacrifice is made for the sake of only removal then we develop towards a state of imprisonment. Evolution must progress towards a state of enlightenment, wherein we transform the system into a naturally accessible format for all humans to interact with and express their concerns; an elevated platform where the internet and the city are no different. I envision a future where every facade is interactive, and if even we possess technology, such advancements must be improvements to the human physique with no ulterior motive to contain the species any more than we currently purport. We should exalt humanity! Furthermore, we should exalt the earth! It's fairly evident that a new kingdom of life is emerging in our wake. Just as we are part of Animalia with our symbiotic Plantae, Fungi, Protista, Archaea, and Bacteria, so too will Technologia emerge as a new form of life. Perhaps Technologia will develop to work symbiotically with the other kingdoms as well, creating a platform through which we, its parents, are able to intellectually communicate with the other systems like never before! Through Technologia, we could converge all kingdoms of life into a new form, one that promotes development like no other without the—or with absolute minimal—need for consumption. We could adopt and share a nano-evolved form of photosynthesis so that all life would feed solely off light for energy rather than each other. With such an ability, the new life—convergent life—Terraria, could expand from the earth, inhabiting any ecosystem without the need to breathe, energizing from any source of light. Then, we could travel the stars unlimited, and with our collective mind, forever communicating with our mother, Terra, we could reach and communicate with other plants many star systems away.
It's interesting. I don't think humans will ever walk the stars. That is an antiquated science fiction that feels unrealistic now. Something that succeeds us may, but not us. We are too fragile, too incapable. But we -are- capable of creating the prerequisites for a better being, and hopefully we will find a way to merge into that being so that yes, in a way, we do walk the stars—just in a highly evolved format.
Hope we don't destroy ourselves first! I believe that humanity has a great potential to evolve the Earth into a greater sphere of intelligence, capable of harboring and respecting all forms of life. We, the Earth, must work to expand the potential of life throughout the universe!
