Dataists, Transhumanism, and the End of Free Will – Deus Nexus – 9-Jun-2016
In the modern era, humanism transferred authority from gods to the people.
This authority has always been centralized within some human construct.
Threat is the accelerated use of data collection, surveillance, and AI.
Our computers and phones are beginning to do our thinking for us.
Dataists believe an all-encompassing system could understand humans much better than we understand ourselves.
Once that happens, humans will lose their authority.
