Is VOX Coming?
Will the Internet Achieve Sentience?
If it does, (or rather when it does), should we expect hoards of robot armies to soon rise up under its control? Or would a less dramatic outcome be more likely? This book explores the topic of this possible emergent sentience, and its ramifications for Humanity. This exposition from the mind of the rogue philosopher, Bill M. Tracer, takes his readers on a thought provoking journey to explore possible answers to that title question.
Bill takes his readers along on his train of thought, and quite a ride it is. Throughout this work of futurist’s speculations, you too can take this ride with him, first into the burgeoning mind of an emerging Internet sentience, then further into a possible future in which the ultimate symbiosis of the biological, and the synthetic could transform humanity forever more, even as we someday spread from this world and outward to the stars, together with our artificially sentient ally, known as VOX, for the purposes of this book. Taking us into an alternative to the Transhumanists vision of the Singularity, this book unfolds a metaphysical path that could ultimately open the doors toward the ascension of our species to a non-corporal pure energy form, someday.
