Online Evolution

With the advent of the internet so comes the next progression in human evolution. Everyday technology is being developed to speed up our lifestyles.

Well it is my assertion that we are this has made people, faster, sharper, more efficient beings- ready to embrace new technology and new changes in our culture. To me that just seems awesome. As Timothy Leary put it “Our intellectual level has evolved from that of hunter-gather to tool user to designer/creator of universal tools (the computer) and metatools.” The next major step in human evolution is occurring now, with the dawn of the digital age…

Yeah, thats pretty cool ay - the way we can now consciously trace our own evolution by looking back over our creation and use of technology. Its weird though that Timothy Leary calls the computer a universal tool - as its only a global tool because although we use computer technology in space etc its not like we communicate with other beings in the universe. what is a metaphysical tool??
