"The universe only allows for two possibilities: Determinism and randomness. There is no room for "freedom". Humans invented the idea of freedom just as they invented the idea of heaven and hell. Sensations and emotions are just biochemical calculations."


"But all good things must come to an end. The very science that Humanism supported has come to show that the basic principles of Humanism are based on false concepts. In particular, free will. Feelings are biochemical processes. Given enough data, an external entity can understand my feelings and make better decisions for me than I can!"

Is Inequality About to Get Unimaginably Worse?
The Inquiry

Yuval Noah Harari, the author of Sapiens and Homo Deus, explores the long history of inequality – from the Stone Age onwards – and asks whether we are on the brink of creating a huge “economically useless” underclass, unable to keep up with enhanced humans, the owners of increasingly valuable data and, eventually, artificial intelligence.
