Critical response: Nick Bostrom – Are You Living in a Computer Simulation?
This speculates to the future of the human race and essentially its evolution into a post-human era. It could be thought that humans may evolve biologically and cybernetically as the being of our race changes in what way could we strive to be more ‘human’? If an artificial intelligence gained a true sense of self-awareness, how can we determine what is simulated?This also may infer that historically we are the same human simulation of our predecessors. If our notions of evolution were ‘survival of the fittest’, would cybernetic human simulations be another step closer to what humans now strive to be?
