Cyborgs v ‘holdout humans’: what the world might be like if our
species survives for a million years
Published: November 29, 2022     Author: Anders Sandberg

Foreseeable future technologies such as human enhancement (making
ourselves smarter, stronger or in other ways better using drugs,
microchips, genetics or other technology), brain emulation (uploading
our brains to computers) or artificial intelligence (AI) may produce
technological forms of new species not seen in biology.

Under silicon canopies in the Sahara, trillions of artificial minds
teem. The vast and hot data centres which power these minds once
threatened to overheat the planet. Now, most orbit the Sun, forming a
growing structure – a Dyson sphere – where each watt of energy powers
thought, consciousness, complexity and other strange things we do not
have words for yet.
