 The path of mankind

Humankind evolved during biological evolution. Biological evolution operates at the level of unique individuals. The fitness of an individual determines survival and reproduction. Biological evolution is competitive in nature.

Humans are self-conscious, intelligent, abstract-thinker beings due to the evolutionary development of the brain.

Humans seek to know their surroundings through the development of their senses and his brain.

Human, with his advanced brain and motor skills, makes tools and transforms his environment into the form he needs.

Humans are capable of advanced communication and speech for the transmission of abstract thoughts through special cognitive skills.

Humans invented writing, the method of recording speaking, thoughts, acquired knowledge. Humans are able to gather, accumulate, and pass on knowledge through writing.

Humans are cooperative beings by advanced tools of communication.

Humans form a complex community and society through cooperative behavior.

Humans create scientific and technical societies through cooperation and the accumulation of knowledge.

Humans exist in a society that is constantly evolving by scientific and technical progress.

Humans constantly encounter problems through the continuous change of the environment. Humans are problem-solving beings by their abilities.

The fate of human

With the development of technology, humans exceed biological evolution for adaptation to the environment.

Humans are the most suitable species for survival by abilities, acquired knowledge, and achievements.

With the help of technological development, humans can provide living conditions for themselves in ever increasingly diverse environments. In this process, the greatest threat for humans becomes increasingly the human race itself.

Humans, as long as biological beings, remain dangerous to themselves because of their evolutionary heritage.

The fate of technology

The role of technology is to support, serve and ensure the increasingly higher level of human living conditions.

During the development of technology, more and more tasks and functions are taken over from humans by machines.

The development of technology enables and supports the growth of society by improving living conditions.

With the progression of technology, the maintenance of humans’ life and society requires less and less human resources. The development of technology does not require the growth of society.

With the advancement of technology, the potential of growth and the demand for the growth of society do not coincide.

The development of technology allows society to have two fundamentally different paths of development, the possibility of a growing and the possibility of a shrinking society.

The fate of society

Humans are both competitive and cooperative because of evolutionary reasons.

Humans form communities and create a society with the background of evolutionary behavior carrying contradiction.

Human society is more productive through cooperation.

In the course of human development, an increasingly globalized society is created.

During the ever-higher level of social cooperation, the stress caused by the evolutionary background keeps the society constantly moving and changing.

Through intelligence, humans are able to consciously shape personal behavior for effective social coexistence.

In the interest of social coexistence, humans create the system of governance that functions over society and adapts the community to the constantly changing circumstances.

The main task of the system of social governance is to reconcile the opposite nature of the evolutionary heritage of the human.

The goal of social governance is to create an efficiently collaborative, effective human society.

The fate of the human race

Human society generically (self-induced way) is either expanding or decreasing. A stagnant society can only be maintained artificially or, in the case of natural processes, by fluctuating between growth and decline.

The formation of society is fundamentally determined by the growth or decline of society.

Social collaboration helps sustain subsistence. The growing or declining society is the consequence of the cooperation of society, and the result of the function of the society's governance.

A non-cooperative society results in a growing society. A non-cooperative society is not stable, disintegrates into stable, cooperative parts.
(If society as a whole does not support cooperation, then local cooperative communities are needed for effective subsistence. In this case, the smallest groups that are still cooperating, like the family are necessarily growing. This attribution characterizes a non-cooperative society.)

In the case of a cooperative society, a society that allows social differences to grow results in a generically declining society.

In the case of a cooperative society, a society that seeks to reduce social disparities results in a generically growing society.

Cooperating societies can, by conscious decisions, artificially regulate the size of society.

Human evolutionary heritage supports a cooperative society that allows differences to grow.

The society that enables the human race to survive is a cooperative society that seeks to reduce disparities.

The future of the human race depends on transcending the biological evolutionary heritage.

If humanity cannot transcend the biological evolutionary heritage, it will become a society of minimal size dependent on the support of technology. In this case, a human-made artificial intelligence created by technological advancement will be a competitor to humans and will certainly overthrow it.

If humanity is able to create a system of social governance that results in a cooperative society that supports the reduction of disparities, then a growing, long-term viable, efficient human society that develops harmoniously with technology can emerge. In this case, the self-aware artificial intelligence emerging with technological advancement is going to be a collaborative, supportive, integrated part of human society.

The aforementioned two directions of development of human society determine the ultimate size of the human race.

The future of human

The purpose of human existence is to maintain and expand individual life, to realize individual eternal life.

The development of technology is constantly expanding human existence and results in a longer and longer individual lives.

The ultimate extension of human life is eternal life without a time limit.

Personal eternal life can be achieved if the structure and operation that creates the self-conscious function in the individual, the personal brain becomes sustainable indefinitely.

The individual eternal life is a technological task and achievement, realized by technological development.

Individual eternal life requires the constant maintenance of the human (not necessarily biological) body.

The way to realize human eternal life is the continuous conversion of the biological body in operation while maintaining functions.

If the human race survives long enough and sufficient size, the development of technology is going to achieve personal eternal life.

In the case of the realization of personal eternal life, no more than one individual of the human race may ultimately survive because of the human’s biological evolutionary heritage.
