Human No More?

I read recently that we're are still evolving as a species. It makes sense to me that we are, but I wonder just exactly what we're evolving into? Human of course, but what kind of human? I've heard different theories as to what it might be. These include everything from beings with higher developed brain function, to the absurd idea that we will become cosmic beings who eventually transcend space-time. It's also reasonable to assume the we might one day be able to control our own evolution through genetic engineering. If we do then what it means to be human will no longer be soo easy to define.

  1. The Mysterious Force Called Gravity

    Ok, no philosophy this time. I have a real physics question that's been bugging me for a while, and I can't seem to find any answers to help give me a clear understanding of the situation. I think I have a basic idea, but don't know if I'm at least on the right track or not. I've heard different hypothesis regarding gravity, and just what it is exactly. At this point I get the classical physics idea of it being associated with the curvature of space due to mass. I also realize that it can affect ...

  2. Mysticism and Quantum Theory

    The idea of alternate dimensions, and the alien beings that might inhabit them isn't new to quantum theory. Nor is the fact that some of these parallel realities just might operate by completely different physical laws other than the four that we know of. Take for instance the mystical system known as the Kabbalah. The ancients long ago claimed that we exist as part of a multidimensional reality consisting of eleven seperate dimensions or "worlds", in which there live various exotic beings. ...
  3. Are Mind and Matter One and The Same?

    I've been a practictioner of transcendental meditation for three decades now. Some of the altered states of consciousness that accompany advanced meditation can be desribed in terms very similar to those used by physicists to describe quantum theory. These include the experience of an ultimate unity underlining everything, and the sensation of "awakening" to an awareness of a timeless Now where past, present and future intermingle harmoniously. These sensations can be soo profound and ...
