What is freedom? How is the concept of freedom related to this predicament?
I am interested in knowing what people think NTHE will look like. Humans are clearly very adaptable and clever. Will all humans be killed, or just the majority of them? Will some small groups be able to survive, in some tiny niches somewhere?
I suspect that many humans — most, me included — have been so imbued with the idea that humans are the apex of evolution, that it’s hard to conceive that we will be wiped out entirely; gone forevermore. Do we really believe that, or do we think NTHE will be just a major setback, a rebooting of humanity, but that at least a few of us will endure?
