When do you think human beings were at their peak existence? Or do you think that will happen in the future?

I don’t think the way we exist now is ideal personally. I think the way we are using technology has us headed in the wrong direction and I think the smartest people we have available to us have been trying to send up flags about this for years.

I’m certainly open to disagreement.

We are always reaching new a new peak and pretty much always have since we learned how to write down our thoughts and discoveries. And for the first time in history, more than half of the worlds population has personal access to the world's knowledge that they carry around with them every day.

Are things perfect, of course not, but they also never have been.

Our peak is today.

Tomorrow will be a new peak.

If anyone wants to try and stop progress, they might succeed for a minute, but eventually we're going to run them over.

How do you two feel about AI? Do you feel it will be wielded solely for positive? Is it a threat to our existence?

I’m not certain human beings were intended to exist as closely connected to technology as we are. I question it often. I wonder if people that evolved from apes in much simpler circumstances were intended for the carcinogens we’ve created, processed foods, massive amounts of stimuli, etc.

I do think the health advances are obviously useful. Our lives are tremendously long now compared to what they were many thousands of years ago. I just wonder if our brains and bodies will have a chance to catch up to our instincts.
