Let Kevin Kelly talk about the future, it will be awkward, but everyone will listen. He talked about so much about the future of the Internet, but what do he think about the blockchain world?
In the just-concluded trip to China, Kevin Kelly published his views on the blockchain. He believes that the blockchain is an infrastructure for the future digital civilization, providing elements for a decentralized global network that allows the digital society to guarantee its own reliability and trustworthiness.
Kevin Kelly’s recognition of blockchain technology is encouraging.

From a teenager who has wandered in the desolate regions of Asia for nearly a decade to avoid technology, to become a "global overview" contributor, and to recommend valuable tools/technologies with the attitude of the Amish people to technology, to create " Wired magazine walks at the cutting edge of technology, and then publishes the book "Out of Control" to predict the development of future technology. These predictions have become a reality in the next decade or so. Kevin Kelly’s life is in dialogue with science and technology. .
He thinks about what technology is. He listens to what technology wants and uses it to find a framework to guide himself through the growing network of emerging technologies.
If Kevin Kelly thinks that the blockchain is a powerful tool that will bring about some kind of change , then at least, from the perspective of his view of technology and his understanding of technology, there is a future in the future of technology. It is an important part of the blockchain, which is what technology wants.
Therefore, we reread " What Technology Wants " and summarized the main line and essence of the book into this article . Understanding Kevin Kelly's ideas helps us understand and treat blockchain technology from a broader perspective.

We have created a technology body, so we hope to have a unique influence on it, but all systems will generate their own kinetic energy, but we have not found this.
What technology wants is what we want when we design them, and we try to guide them. But in addition to these two driving forces, the technology body also has its own needs.
It needs to figure out the cliché, classify and assemble the class of the class itself, just like most large, closely connected systems; the science and technology are the same as all the life systems want, hope that they are immortal and have been there. In the process of continuous growth, these inherent needs of the scientific and technological body have become more and more complex and more powerful.
For technology, "want" does not represent a well-thought-out decision. The "wish" of mechanization of science and technology is not so much a result of careful thinking, but rather a trend, a tendency, an impulse, and a trajectory. The "wish" of technology is more like a kind of demand. It is the impulse to something, just like the sea cucumber will drift unconsciously when courting.
Millions of circuits that strengthen connections and countless interactions drive the entire science and technology toward some unconscious direction.
First, science and technology, the seventh biological world
Technology is an outward extension of humanity, but this extension is not from genes, but from our minds. Science and technology is a form of thought extension. It is not only a human invention, but also born out of life .
As a living organism of thought, the evolution of science and technology is also mimicking the evolution of organisms composed of genes. Both have many of the same characteristics, and the differences between them are very subtle: evolution is from simple to complex, from general To concrete, from monotonous to diversified, from individualism to mutual benefit, from wasting energy to high efficiency, from slow change to stronger evolvability.
We know that the organisms found so far on Earth can be divided into six categories, all of which share a common evolutionary structure, even if the complexity and degree of development of the body are different. The evolution of science and technology has many similarities with the evolution of these species.
The species of science and technology change over time, and the pattern is very similar to the phylogenetic tree of biological evolution.
Technology expresses ideas, but ideas are not isolated. They come from a network of auxiliary ideas, indirect ideas, supporting ideas, underlying assumptions, side effects, logic, and many subsequent possibilities. Ideas come together, and an idea in the brain means a lot of ideas.
Most of the new ideas and inventions are made up of cluttered ideas, and the irrelevant parts will eventually become tightly integrated systems that will have more advanced designs.
In technology, combined evolution is the earliest and most common . Many of the components of a technology are also used by other technologies, so when the component "disengages" from the original technology product and applies it to other places and improves it, it will automatically generate a lot of progress.
Just as the mechanical device invented for the organ was applied to a textile machine, the mechanical principle of the textile machine evolved computer software.
This combination is like animal mating, producing a phylogenetic tree of ancient technology. As Darwin described in evolution, the reward for minor improvements is more replicas, so innovation will spread through population stability.
Old ideas have hatched new ideas and integrated themselves into them. Technology not only constitutes a mutually supportive alliance in the ecosystem, but also forms the direction of evolution.
The scientific and technological body is a further information reorganization that starts in the six biological circles and is the seventh world of life.
Life is a self-itaging information system. A more inspiring way of looking at the life history of this 4 billion years is what is the main change in the information organization that marks the life form.
Biologists John Maynard Smith and Ershi Souttermari identified major changes in the structure of life in evolution and discovered the beginnings of eight biological information in life history:
From a single replicable molecule to an interactive population of replicable molecules; from replicable molecules to replicable molecules into chromosomes; from RNA-type chromosomes to DNA proteins; from non-nuclear cells to nucleated cells; from asexual reproduction to sexuality Recombination; from single-celled organisms to multicellular organisms; from single individuals to groups and superorganisms; from primate communities to language-based communities.
Significant changes in these eight biological tissues provide a platform for bio-information segments to be arranged in an updated, easier-to-organize manner, facilitating the evolution of living things .
For example, " sexual recombination " maximizes the evolvability of organisms by controlling the recombination of traits rather than the complete randomness or uniformity of strict replication. Animals that use sexual recombination will evolve faster than Their competitors. Gender production is the most important step in the process of bioinformatics restructuring.
The evolution of the scientific and technological body is also reshaping the information structure. According to the level of information organization in science and technology , technology contains six major changes . Each change is unprecedented in the processing of information and knowledge. They are:
From primate communication to language; from oral knowledge to writing and mathematical notation; from manuscript to printing; from book knowledge to scientific methods; from hand-made to mass production; from industrial culture to ubiquitous global communication .
Language enables information to be stored in a larger memory, enabling humans to adapt and disseminate knowledge faster than genes; writing systems structure more knowledge, allowing organized information to infiltrate into everyday life At the level; printing has brought the popularity of information to a new level; scientific methods have enabled humans to be more precise in dealing with explosive information.
These new, orderly information—which we call science—can be used to restructure things.
When applying scientific methods to the process, we invented large-scale production of parts that can replace each other; when order and design are injected into everything we manufacture, the wide flow of information extends into manufacturing and humans, in a huge The network, the largest information order, is distributed globally.
The trajectory of the increasing order of evolution of science and technology is the same as the trajectory of life. We can use the science and technology as a further information reorganization starting from the six biological worlds. The science and technology is the seventh realm of life, and it extends the process that began 4 billion years ago.
Second, Homo sapiens are trends, not entities
As the seventh biological world of life, science and technology are increasing, expanding and accelerating the process of biological evolution for billions of years. We can think of science and technology as "accelerated evolution . " Therefore, in order to see the future direction of the technology, we need to understand the trend of evolution itself, and what is driving it in that direction.
The evolution of life has an intrinsic direction of development, and this direction is shaped by the nature of matter and energy, which brings some inevitability to the formation of life. These not mysterious trends are also woven into the structure of technology, which means that certain aspects of the body of science are also inevitable.
To find the trajectory of the evolution of science and technology, we must go back to the original beginning, which is the origin of life.
Evolution "found" eyes 6 times, "find" rhodopsin 2 times
When Darwin developed the theory of natural selection, the structure of the eyes made him worry. He found it difficult to explain how the eye evolved bit by bit, because the retina, crystals, and pupils were so precisely matched to form a perfect whole, but it was useless when separated.
The evolution of the eye looks like a miracle, but even more amazing is that "camera-like eyes" have been evolved six times in the biological process: this optical architecture is also in octopus, snails, marine annelids, jellyfish and spiders. It appears on the body, and the six biological families are not related to each other, and each family has evolved this miracle on its own.
"Camera-like eyes" connected to six independent self-assembly seems to mean extremely impossible, which is like throwing 6 million coins, the result is the same.
Is there a specific form that is an inevitable trend of evolution? With a little confusion, biologists have documented an increasingly long list of phenomena that are constantly reappearing in life on Earth, and find that most of the methods used by life are used by more than one species and will span Different genus is used .
Go back to the eyes that are constantly repeating evolution. There is a very special protein on the retina called rhodopsin, which is the best photoreceptor found in nature, but it has also evolved twice in two distinct organisms, archaea and eubacteria.
We should be shocked that the total amount of protein that may be produced or discovered by evolution is 100^20 or 10^39, that is, the number of proteins may be more than the number of stars in the universe, and the probability of finding a particular protein is equivalent. The probability of randomly finding the same star in the vast universe. But evolution found the rhodopsin 2 times.
Physics, chemistry and geometry have always been in charge of life
If the same protein has evolved twice, then obviously every step of evolution is not randomly taken.
What keeps evolution on the "orbit"? In addition to natural selection, there is another driving force behind the evolutionary process, pushing the self-organization of evolution toward the recurring answers, and again and again to reach destinations far beyond imagination.
This power is not supernatural, it is a basic driving force, including the following two:
First, negative restrictions : The negative limitations of the laws of physics, chemistry, and geometry make life impossible beyond a certain range.
Second, positive limitations : The positive limitations of the self-organized complexity of associated genes and metabolic pathways lead to a few new possibilities that are constantly being repeated.
These two forces drive evolution in a particular direction, and we will discuss them in turn.
After the beginning of life, the limitations of physics, chemistry, and geometry have been in charge of life. Life is not boundless in all directions without borders, but is limited in many directions by the nature of matter itself .
For example, the huge blue whale is the same size as a boat, and the mini alpine plant can fit into the tailor's thimble, but the size of the plant and plant will follow a fixed scale, which is governed by the physics of water: the strength of the cell wall The surface tension of the water determines that the fixed surface tension is then the upper limit of the height specified by the width of all animal and plant bodies.
For example, why does carbon become the center of life, and its sister element silicon has not evolved? Because silicon cannot be chained with hydrogen, which limits the size of the derivative; the connection between the silicon molecules becomes unstable in water, so the organisms produced by silicon will have no moisture, but if there is no liquid matrix, it is very It's hard to imagine how complex molecules can be transported around to create interaction.
Biologists Michael Denton and Craig Marshall argue that "under all life diversity, there is a limited array of natural forms that can be repeated anywhere in a carbon-based universe."
There is a rule in life that "wanted" to make certain patterns appear
The second important force driving evolution is to direct evolutionary innovation to positive constraints in specific directions.
The variation of the supply of natural selection is not always from random. In addition to the limitations of the geometry and physics discussed above, more importantly, the type of variation is usually the inherent possibility of being “self-organized and repetitive”. Sexually shaped.
Complex systems gain their own inertia, creating a repeating pattern in which the system tends to slip in. This self-sorting introduces the system into its own selfish interests, and as such, it creates a direction toward the impending process. This vector pushes the chaos of evolution to some necessity.
For example, defensive stingers have evolved at least 12 times, including spiders, ramie, bees, jellyfish, etc. This common structure does not come from the external environment, but from the inherent momentum of self-organizing complexity. The self-organizing outer entropy manipulation evolution has embarked on track.
Henry Osborne, a paleontologist who studied dinosaurs and mammals deeply, wrote: "My research on the teeth of many ancient mammal families has convinced me that the basic tendency will change in certain directions. The influence of heredity has evolved teeth hundreds of thousands of years ago."
Humans on earth are not accidents, but are in line with expectations
The engine of evolution has three footholds, namely, adaptability, sporadicity, and the inevitability of the two limitations described above.
In the different levels of nature, the proportion of these three kinds of dynamics is also different. They balance and offset each other, and together they produce the history of each creature.
The Nobel Prize-winning biochemist Christie De Diff mentioned in the book "The Vibrant Dust": "Life is the product of determination. Life and mind are not the products of weird incidents, but as substances. The natural manifestation is written into the structure of the universe ."
Compared to all possible combinations of matter and energy in the universe, life solutions are few and far between. Homo sapiens are trends, not entities.
Third, the inevitable technology
The trends inherent in science and technology tend to converge toward recurring situations, just as biological evolution. Among all the influencing factors imposed on the scientific and technological body, the human mind is only one of them, and it may be the weakest one, because the scientific body is also the product of the self-organized physical and chemical systems that originally produced life, to follow life. And self-organizing rules.
Three kinds of evidence, pointing out that the road to technology must go this way.
Technology will inevitably emerge . The emergence of some of its original forms will further suggest that this technological invention has a certain direction or inclination, and this tendency does not depend on who the inventor is. The inventor is nothing more than a pipe, allowing the inventions that will appear to pass.
We do have three kinds of evidence that clearly point out that the road to technology must go this way.
First, most of the discoveries or inventions have been done by many people independently.
If you look into any type of invention in any field in history, you will find that there is definitely more than one person who wants to get the top spot. At the same time, more than two people found sunspots in 1611, but four, including Galileo; there are six different inventors in the thermometer, and three in the hypodermic needle; the adrenaline is “first” It was repeated 4 times, the effectiveness of vaccinia was discovered by 5 scientists; 3 geniuses discovered decimals, and 3 digitists invented logarithms…
In all areas of technology, we will find the same invention that exists at the same time and exist independently of each other. The history of the entire invention is a series of endless parallel examples. The greatest idol genius in humans, such as Einstein, may be able to surpass the inevitability for more than a decade, but for the rest of the population, the inevitable things will appear on a schedule.
Second, in ancient times, we saw that independent scientific and technological processes on different continents would be combined in a fixed order.
From the appearance of modern people 50,000 years ago, until the sea travel and ground communication in 1000 AD, the progress of civilization on all continents is almost irrelevant. This geographical environment provides a laboratory to test the "parallel state". In the four major continents of Europe, Africa, Asia and the Americas, inventions have progressed independently .
Looking at the situation on different continents, we will see inventions appear in a familiar order. The earliest is the stone tablets, and then the flames are controlled, and then the weapons using the shells appear, followed by the meteorite pigments, funerals, fishing equipment, sewing…
Kevin Kelly analyzed the parallelism of the evolutionary sequence of 53 inventions. He found that the correlation coefficient of the evolutionary order on the three continents is 0.93, which means almost exactly the same; the correlation coefficient of all four continents is 0.85, and the degree of overlap in the evolutionary order is very obvious. Basically, as long as technology begins to develop, the direction of development will be similar .
Third, in modern times, we see that the order of progress is difficult to stop, shift or change.
If a society lacking a technological structure can skip the heavy and dirty industrial era, it would be great to jump to the era of pure and lightweight digital technology. But the reality is that the inherent order of science and technology makes it impossible for technology to leap forward. Things will only step out of the next step from what is known .
According to the World Bank study, the introduction of state-of-the-art technology in developing countries, usually with a 5% breakthrough, stagnates, and waits until the old infrastructure keeps pace to continue to spread.
The Economist once had a report on the leap in technology. The conclusion pointed out: "When a country that cannot adopt old technology products encounters new technology, the situation will be rather unfavorable."
Three forces drive the development of technology
Like the three forces of biological evolution, the science and technology is also shaped by three forces. This is no coincidence. If the scientific body is an accelerated process of life evolution, it should be dominated by the same forces.
The most important driving force for the evolution of science and technology is the development that has been destined for a long time – the things that science and technology want, that is, the structural inevitability of technological evolution; the second driving force is the influence of the history of science and technology, the weight left in the past, It is the contingency in history; the third force is the collective freedom consciousness that society uses to shape science and technology. Our choice is functional adaptability .
Under the power of the first inevitability, the path of scientific and technological evolution is simultaneously manipulated by the laws of physics and spontaneous order. The inherent possibility of self-organized repetitive patterns usually shapes the form of variation .
Even if time is reversed, the technology will move forward in some macroscopic form. The details of a particular species of biology or technology cannot be predicted, but the emergence of macroscopic models, such as electric motors and binary calculations, is determinable.
What will happen next will be attached to the second force, which is the level of evolution and history and incidents. Events and environmental opportunities use different methods to reverse the process of evolution. These incidents accumulate and the internal dynamics create an ecosystem .
For example, the diameter of the rocket was determined by the buttocks of two horses more than 2,000 years ago: the width of the two tall horses in the Roman era was 143.5 centimeters, which determined the width of the chariot, and the width of the carts of the people must be the same. In order to follow the chariots left on the road by the chariot, each road was built 143.5 cm wide in the vast Roman Empire. This standard entered the United Kingdom with the march of the Roman legion. Later, when the railway was built, although the horse was no longer used, the track width was naturally 143.5 cm.
The shuttle's components are manufactured in many different places and need to be transported by train. The route will pass through a tunnel that is no wider than the standard track, so the diameter of the rocket itself cannot be much wider than 143.5 cm. This example illustrates how technology uses its own way in a long history.
The third force of technological evolution is the adaptability of science and technology, constantly pursuing the best and creative new things, and continuing to solve the problem of survival.
In biology, natural selection has no purpose and no purpose, but in science and technology, resilience can not only be felt by humans, but also accept the free will and choice of human beings. The choice of people with free will to shape the characteristics of the body of science, this conscious open design is why the body of science has become the most powerful force in the world.
Fourth, what does technology want?
If some aspects of the technology are already destined, and some levels depend on our choices. How do we distinguish these levels? How do we know where technology is going? If the more important form of technology is bound to emerge, what else is there?
Kevin Kelly believes that there is a proper tool for perceiving the long-term cosmic orbit of the science and technology. Regardless of the direction of the future, technology will extend the path of 4 billion years of evolution.
From the perspective of evolution, we can see how these macroscopic rules are revealed: the inevitable form of technology will unite the power of all ten external entropy systems (including life). The more external entropy traits are observed in some form of technology, the higher the inevitability of this technology .
Kevin Kelly listed an external entropy trend that can serve as a checklist to help us evaluate new technologies and predict their future development. The proximity of technology and external entropy power is the screening criteria for technology. This list includes:
1, more efficient
2, more opportunities
3, higher exposure
4, higher complexity
5, more diverse
6, more specialization
7, more omnipresent
8, higher degrees of freedom
9. Stronger symbiosis
11, more conscious ability
12, more structured
13. Stronger evolutionary ability
This is what technology wants. Like what life wants, they constitute the most important evolutionary force in science and technology, waiting for the explosion into the technological products of science and technology. We will analyze the 13 trends included in this list one by one.
1. More efficient : If you trace the long-term growth of energy density, you will find that personal computer chips are the current energy efficiency champion. The flow of energy through technology is faster than the journey through the cell, and the sustainability of our current known structure cannot exceed technology.
The image below is an energy density map edited by physicist Eric Chase, whose energy density is calculated as the energy per second of material flowing through the system during its lifetime.
2. More Opportunities : Complex systems gain their own inertia, creating a repeating pattern in which the system tends to slip in. This intrinsic inertia is very important in the evolution of biology, and it is more important in the evolution of science and technology. In fact, it is the main event in the evolution story of science and technology.
3. Higher exposure : Life emerges from dense fog, just as crystals separate out from saturated solutions. Organizations with "higher" levels are crystallized from "lower" locations. The same is true for technology. When existing technology products create an over-saturated mother, the inevitable inventions will appear in reality.
4. Higher complexity : Everything is going to be complicated. Effective complexes do not start with biology, but start at the same time as the big bang. Each step up, the resulting tissue is more logical, informative and thermodynamically deep, and it is more difficult to compress the structure, at the same time random and predictable. The order is also reduced, and each step cannot be reversed. This complex arc is shaped at the beginning of the universe and continues to flow through the creatures, now extending itself through technology.
5. More diversity : The diversity of the universe has been increasing since time. In the first few seconds, there was only a quark in the universe. In less than a few minutes, the quark began to form a variety of subatomic particles; after the appearance of life, the diversity was greatly accelerated, and this trend was further enhanced by the scientific body. Speed up. Diversity brings power to the world.
6. More specialization : The trend of evolution is from general to specific. The original cells have no specific purpose. Over time, it has polished a variety of traits from homogeneity. There are only 210 different kinds of cells in the human body. The organism itself tends to be more highly specialized. This demand also extends to technology. In the body, today's professional tools are so jaw-dropping.
The computer seems to be moving in the opposite direction and can accommodate more and more features. This convergence will not last long, and we are still in the early stages of intelligence. With the advent of rapid manufacturing, specialization will leap forward, and any tool can be tailored to the individual's specific needs or desires.
7. More ubiquity : In the biological world and the scientific and technological body, the results of self-breeding brew the inner motivation and move toward omnipresent. The replica of the evolutionary configuration has the trick to break through all the restrictions and maximize the scope of the spread. Human beings are the reproductive organs of science and technology, and the prevalence of technology products continues to increase. The track that follows will make all technologies go omnipresent.
8. Higher degrees of freedom : Free will is the same as other things, not unique to humans. Some physicists, including Freeman Dyson, believe that free will appears in the particles of the atom and expands from the big bang. Random mathematical or deterministic logic cannot properly explain the sudden decay of cosmic particles or change the direction of rotation. Particles simply make choices.
Theoretical biologist Stewart Kaufman believes that this "free will" comes from the mysterious quantum nature of the universe. In the process of evolution, "selectivity" is increasing, the brain is the factory of choice, and the science and technology creates new mechanisms that can use unconscious free will.
Once the machine is released at the same speed as we think, we don't have to wait for us, we can directly meet new possibilities.
9. Stronger symbiosis : Three evolutionary symbiosis have been woven into the evolutionary process: organisms are increasingly dependent on other organisms in evolution, and nature creates more opportunities for species to depend on each other, the same species The opportunities for members to work with each other increase.
Human life is immersed in all three kinds of symbiosis, and the scientific and technological body moves toward an increasingly higher level of symbiosis between humans and machines. Most of today's machines don't touch the ground, or touch water, or even touch the air.
The scientific and technological body has also improved the symbiosis between machines. Only one quarter of the energy of science and technology is used in human food, clothing and food. The rest of the energy created by technology is used in science and technology.
10. Better : Most of the things that evolved are beautiful and evolved to the most beautiful of the apex. Every creature today has benefited from the evolution of 4 billion years, showing the depth we see as beauty. In the science and technology, the speed of arrival of tens of millions of new products will make the science and technology more hierarchical, sculpt the existing technology, add more history, deepen the organizational level of internal knowledge, year after year, become More and more beautiful.
11. More conscious : Smart is a competitive advantage wherever you go. We see wisdom reappearing and reinventing everywhere, because learning can make a difference in a living universe.
Although the extent of nature's love of intelligence is extraordinary, the body of science has transcended nature. Science and technology use opportunistic methods to breed intelligence. The inventions created by humans to help the brain become the raw materials for creating new intelligence, such as storage devices, signal processing, information flow and distributed communication networks.
The new intelligence sprouts in an extraordinary degree in the body of science and technology. The science and technology desires more and more consciousness. You can see three ways of revealing it: intelligence penetrates all the substances as much as possible; external entropy continues to be organized into more complex intelligence. Type; perception becomes as much of a kind of intelligence as possible. The technology body is ready to intercept the matter, rearrange the atoms, and let the perception infiltrate.
12. More structured : Biology is a system that organizes its own biological information; science and technology is also a system that receives nutrients from the accumulated results of information and knowledge. The information structure that we can interpret the evolution of science and technology as the natural evolutionary start becomes more and more huge.
The construction of science is not to increase the authenticity or total amount of information, but to improve the order and organization of knowledge. The tools that science creates are designed to test, compare, record, and recall information in an orderly manner and to relate to other knowledge. The track of science and technology is pushed forward, further organizing information and tools to make the artificial world more structured.
13. Stronger Evolution : Natural evolution is the way in which creatures look for new ways of living. Evolution seeks designs that allow "search games" to continue, and evolution evolves. The organism has continued to evolve for 4 billion years because the organism has discovered ways to improve its ability to evolve.
From the beginning of the big bang to the present, no one has evolved to find answers to the human brain. The most recent extension is technology. The changes that technology has brought to the Earth over the past 100 years have been as much as the changes that biology has brought in the past 10 billion years. The science and technology uses its prolific power to produce millions of instruments, technologies, products, and sophisticated inventions in order to have enough raw materials and space to continue to evolve its own evolutionary capabilities.
These are the 13 trends in technological evolution, but they are not all external entropy thrusts, and we expect to be able to add more aspects as we understand the universe.
Based on this list, we can compare two competing technologies and see which ones are beneficial to more external entropy traits. The most sustainable technology is the one that tends to maximize diversity, perception, opportunity, symbiosis, and popularity.
These trends are the tendency of the system of science and technology to entangle. The power of the trend is like the gravity of the moon. It is weak but persistent, and it can hardly be felt. In the end, it can pull the ocean. After a few generations, these trends have become the cravings of humanity, the temptation of a momentary fashion and financial trends, pushing technology in some deep-rooted direction.
Five, unlimited journey
We tend to think that the human brain is the most powerful force in the world, but the scientific body has caught up with it.
The power of our mind can only be slightly enhanced through deliberate self-reflection, and thinking about thought can only add a little bit of wisdom. However, the power of science and technology can infinitely increase its own strength through reflection on its own transformational nature. New technologies make it easier to invent better technology, but we can't say that the brain is the same .
The dominance of technology does not come from the human mind, but is rooted in the same self-organization as the introduction of galaxies, planets, life and mind. It is part of a large asymmetric arc that began in the Big Bang and expanded over time into an increasingly abstract, non-material form.
Now, this arc is slowly being irrevocably liberated from the ancient rules of matter and energy.
There is a unique line of self-reproduction that binds the universe, organisms, and technology to the same creation. The science and technology is not an enemy of creatures, but an extension of biology. Human beings are not the apex of this trajectory, but the intermediate point between nature and man. Whether we like it or not, we are all standing on the fulcrum of the future .
The wind has been long, and since its inception, humans have been seeking enlightenment in the shade of the wild. But the universe is so big, the secrets are endless, and all kinds of intelligence are needed to understand it.
Science and technology strengthens the impulse of the human brain to integrate all ideas, accelerates the connection between all human beings, and provides the world with all the methods that can be imagined in order to understand the infinity.
No one can break through the limits of humanity; no technology can capture all the promises of technology. It is necessary to gather all the creatures, all the minds, and all the technology to make the reality come true. The entire science and technology body, including us, must go all out to find the necessary tools to surprise the world.
Let us conclude this article with a passage from the anthropologist Lauren Esley:
Looking away from the galaxy and looking at the large group of cells in the body that work hard to achieve certain impossible tasks, this reminds us of humans, these self-producers who have passed through the glacial generation, looking to the mirror and science. Magic, of course, they don't just want to see his wild face and himself. He came because he was eager to listen and looking for a field that had already surpassed him.
This is an infinite journey.
