    From ape to man, from man to? What is our next evolution? The end message to this music video 7,000,000,000 says ,"Humanity's Suffering is Pushing it to its Birth" What does it mean?

    Watch the 7,000,000,000 music video, it has quite a soundtrack to accompany it.

    Most likely, biological evolution has been rendered obsolete. Once a species evolved that could use language to communicate abstract ideas, natural selection began favoring those with better ideas, rather than those with a given genetic trait.

    Our ideology can change faster than our genes can, and the effects are more meaningful. Hopefully, humanity is pushing toward a better set of ideas. I doubt our genome is really at issue.

    Besides: the next jump probably won't be genetic at all, or if it is, it will be artificially genetic. 2 possibilities that are very near to happening (like within 200 years, probably):

    1) - We start grafting electronic devices into our own brains. IQ boost surgery becomes common among people who want to get ahead in life, after they reach a certain age, of course.


    2) - We start manipulating our own DNA. It could be limited to pre-birth, but there's a chance it could also happen after birth. Right now, we know how to grow bypass veins in a person's leg. Some day, we might know how to grow additional brain tissue.

    i've been pondering on the next human evolution, maybe the next human evolution involves communications. Although we have advanced in technology and ideas, yet we have problem communicating effectively. It may come to a point when all can communicate without the need for physical apparatus ie mobile phone, the internet. Instead everything is communicated through some sort of telepathy. Is that possible? Just a thought.

    It's interesting that you mention communications. I, for one, think communication is a catalyst for a larger social evolution. That is, television and cellphones and other ways of " communicating," are the means to this evolution. It is a technological evolution so to speak. Then again, communication may just be one of many "micro" evolutionary processes, amidst a macro sea of causality.

    "Communications" can be interpreted differently. I would interpret it as being able to pass my intended "thoughts" to another person without loss of meaning. This means my intentions toward the other person has to be pure if not the other party would be able to read our bad intentions toward him/her.
