Homo Deus A Brief History of Tomorrow

summary Homo Deus A Brief History of Tomorrow

International Bestseller From the author of the international bestseller Sapiens A Brief History of Humankindcomes an extraordinary new book that explores the future of the human species Yuval Noah Harari author of the bestselling Sapiens A Brief History of Humankind envisions a not too distant world in which we face a new set of challenges In Homo Deu. Homo ObsoletusThe audacious first act Sapiens ended with a wild and apocalyptic prophesy that the Sapiens were cooking up the next epochal revolution that will overshadow the previous three the cognitive agricultural and scientificindustrial revolutions Home Deus the second act is the full exploration of that prophesy Both Sapiens and Homo Deus are compulsory reading in my book even though the macro history presented is plenty vulnerable to all sorts of attacks But then it might be better to think of these as works of philosophy and not of history Just like Sapiens is not a History Home Deus is not a prophesy both are explorations This line can be taken as the transition line that links the first book with the second one “Having raised humanity above the beastly level of survival struggles we will now aim to upgrade humans into gods and turn Homo sapiens into Homo deus”The old enemies of mankind— plague famine and war—are now under control Except for the potentially restrictive energy constraint Sapiens has very little standing in our way now The result is that the Sapiens are becoming and God like Harari says and one is forced to pause and reflect by any previous standards of our history are we not already Gods Have we not already exceeded most wild power fantasies Well yes but even God like attributes are coming cheating death and creating new life being primaryAnd along with this march towards the godlike we are marching towards being machine like too as we outsource and of our internal algorithms to better data based external algorithms And the march is relentless Homo Deus is taking birth before our eyes The tomorrow is already upon us and so forthHowever just like the previous three revolutions that infused the Sapiens with power this revolution too will come at a price the price of a ratcheting up of ineuality The new Gods will be the techno super rich BTW reading Harari is good motivation to work on getting rich faster he hints at a possibility that anyone who is rich enough to afford it some 50 years into the future should be able to buy proxy immortality And it will probably be a window that closes uickly since the super rich would soon take over the monopoly on immortality So if you are rich enough at the right point in time then you can be part of Olympus too That might not be a deal many would want to miss out on There is one catch as technology takes over most of the functions even the godlike sapiens will find themselves stuck in a universe devoid of real meaning Bulk of humanity will have no economic social or cultural purpose since anything we can do our new creations would be able to do even better “Organisms are algorithms” and the new algorithms will be so much better than the imperfect ones we are made of As Bill Gates asked in his article about the book “What If People Run Out of Things to Do” We will be stuck in an immortal meaninglessness our own creations clearly our betters We will need a new religion to make sense of all this since the powerful combo of HumanismScience will not work in world where the sanctity of being Human has lost meaning Harari feels that “Dataism” will be the religion that will fill the avoid left by Humanism The whole of Humanity the Earth and maybe the entire Universe will become servants to data a huge data processing system the eternal all knowing Atman And serving this goal will be the only meaningful pursuit left for us Immortal All powerful Obsolete this is the future of the Sapiens The Daddy Surprise revolution that will overshadow the

S he examines our future with his trademark blend of science history philosophy and every discipline in between Homo Deusexplores the projects dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty first century from overcoming death to creating artificial life It asks the fundamental uestions Where do we go from here And how will we protect this fragile wor. Homo Deus is not uite as factual and cohesive as Sapiens It falls into the realm of speculation rather than trying to organise and make sense of the world Sapiens was fantastic because it was almost like a novelisation of human history It was dramatic and loaded with exciting revelations about what makes us human It discussed where we came from and where we are now It was a thought provoking an exceedingly intelligent piece of writing With this book Harari looks to the future to where we may go and how we may get there And here Harari’s opinion comes across very strongly He examines our current practices regarding technology and animals We advance scientifically but not emotionally or spiritually We continue to make the same mistakes as we destroy the natural world and ruin our planet Like me Harari is a vegan and he is disgusted with current practice He does not offer an idealistic view of the future one a vegan would wish for but instead discusses what will happen if we continue with our erroneous ways And for me this took the book to an entirely new level It became thoughtful critical and totally necessary “This is the best reason to learn history not in order to predict the future but to free yourself of the past and imagine alternative destinies Of course this is not total freedom – we cannot avoid being shaped by the past But some freedom is better than none” He looks at animals about what we truly know about them They are not so different from us and the way we treat them is deplorable I could write essays on this subject; I am beyond bitter about it I’m angry I’m frustrated And above all I am so deeply sad My heart is broken every day because humanity is so terribly unjust to those it deems beneath them And here Harari adds another element he considers what would happen if we became a “lesser” lifeform With the progress in technology and genetic engineering it is not to far to suggest that computers could replace us or some form of superhuman So in a way we should not act all high and mighty because one day we may be in a very different situation I don’t find it too hard to believeI do not doubt that these two books have the potential to change how you think about the world They will open your eyes to issues you may never have thought about They’re not to be missed FBR | Twitter | Facebook | Insta | Academia Justice at Cardwell Ranch realm of speculation Cowboy Who Came for Christmas rather than trying to organise and make sense of the world Sapiens was fantastic because it was almost like a novelisation of human history It was dramatic and loaded with exciting Cradle of Solitude revelations about what makes us human It discussed where we came from and where we are now It was a thought provoking an exceedingly intelligent piece of writing With this book Harari looks to the future to where we may go and how we may get there And here Harari’s opinion comes across very strongly He examines our current practices Cowboy Under the Mistletoe regarding technology and animals We advance scientifically but not emotionally or spiritually We continue to make the same mistakes as we destroy the natural world and The Christmas Wedding Quilt: Let It Snow\You Better Watch Out\Nine Ladies Dancing ruin our planet Like me Harari is a vegan and he is disgusted with current practice He does not offer an idealistic view of the future one a vegan would wish for but instead discusses what will happen if we continue with our erroneous ways And for me this took the book to an entirely new level It became thoughtful critical and totally necessary “This is the best Crybaby Falls reason to learn history not in order to predict the future but to free yourself of the past and imagine alternative destinies Of course this is not total freedom – we cannot avoid being shaped by the past But some freedom is better than none” He looks at animals about what we truly know about them They are not so different from us and the way we treat them is deplorable I could write essays on this subject; I am beyond bitter about it I’m angry I’m frustrated And above all I am so deeply sad My heart is broken every day because humanity is so terribly unjust to those it deems beneath them And here Harari adds another element he considers what would happen if we became a “lesser” lifeform With the progress in technology and genetic engineering it is not to far to suggest that computers could Criminal Intent replace us or some form of superhuman So in a way we should not act all high and mighty because one day we may be in a very different situation I don’t find it too hard to believeI do not doubt that these two books have the potential to change how you think about the world They will open your eyes to issues you may never have thought about They’re not to be missed FBR | Twitter | Facebook | Insta | Academia

Ld from our own destructive powers This is the next stage of evolution This is Homo Deus War is obsolete You are likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict Famine is disappearing You are at risk of obesity than starvation Death is just a technical problem Euality is out but immortality is in What does our future hold From the Hardcover edition. Tongue Firmly in CheekOrThe Mormons Are RightOrEvolution Is So YesterdayOrThe Problems of Prayers AnsweredOrToo Much Good News Is Hard to TakeOrIt Could have Turned Out So Different; But It Didn’t OrAll Thoughts and Feelings Are Algorithms; Except This OneOrFiction Is Our Fundamental Technology; Just Ask Donald TrumpOr The Vital Uncertainty We Can Have Meaning Or Power in Life But Not Both TogetherAs with his previous book Sapiens Harari tells a story in Homo Deus that is too disconcerting to summarise and too captivating to ignore It is simultaneously arrogant and self debasing; stimulating and depressing I can therefore only comment on it by suggesting a series of alternative subtitles Those noted above only scratch the surface of possibilities It is the last however that I find most insightful and inspiring to further thought Perhaps an addendum to this review will be necessary at some point
