In the nearly four billion year history of life on earth, the mechanisms of evolution were tied to natural selection and organic life. With the creation of artificial intelligence, humans were able to replace natural selection with intelligent design – but just because humans can do something, should they actually do it? The emerging transhumanism, the reawakening monster of eugenics and the design of the interface between human and machine world must not be left to the omnipotent fantasies of a few super-rich and powerful. In his work, the author looks at human evolution (and why it often has little to do with intelligence) in the past, present and possible future.
Anyone who thinks about the path that humanity could take will find a lot of food for thought and interesting facts in “Evolution, Eugenics and Transhumanism” by Eric Markhoff. The author is a doctor and infection epidemiologist with 20 years of professional experience in infection epidemiology and further education degrees in epidemiology and medical statistics. He is currently unemployed because he realized that the “never to be questioned” COVID-19 measures are undesirable in the New Normal. He used the time he gained to read Michael Ende’s “Momo” and to write his own book “Evolution, Eugenics and Transhumanism”.
