Overview
Rebooting Humanity is a call to action for every human being on the planet. Building a better, more caring, more inclusive world will require the focus, determination, and positive action of each of us, everywhere. The book begins by looking at the current state of the world from the viewpoints of experts in science, technology, philosophy, and business and explores how we may be teetering on the brink of catastrophe through sleepwalking - lacking awareness. Many people are unaware of the threats and opportunities we face in our world, or they are simply unwilling to take action to create a better, fairer, more inclusive world. The Cosmos itself may be at risk due to our inertia. The action then takes the reader on a wild ride 'down the rabbit hole' to a fantasy world where the forces of Good and Evil slug it out to win humanity over to their respective sides. The battle is fierce. The stakes are desperately high. Will we reach our destination as augmented intelligence, or will we lower our standards and become extinct, subverting our power to the forces of darkness, as well as to Artificial Intelligence? The robots are not coming. They are already here. Ramping up their potential as we are dumbing down. Clearly, humanity needs a reboot. And fast! The over-riding message of the book is that if we are to survive and thrive, we must wake up to life, look up from our smartphones and look around at the beauty of Nature. When we remain in a state of awareness and act in the interest of the Common Good, we will be part of the Great Reboot of Humanity. And be fully alive. The book ends with a vision of what life could be like in 2050 if we wake up now to the opportunity for a massive transformation of society.
