Yuval Noah Harari, the author of Sapiens, talks in details about the future and the dangers to beware, in what is most convincing set of future outlooks I have heard to date. It’s different from others’ future outlooks I have heard, so it’s not like competing outlooks of who is right and who is wrong. However, for what Yuval covers compared to what others covered in their talks, Yuval convinced me more in the others did.
Listen to this TEDInterview podcast for all the details and see if you agree.
To best understand this post, you might need a little anthropology background on human prehistory (before written history) if you don’t already know it well. The award winning set of videos below are about as good, simple and complete a picture on human evolution as I’ve ever seen. If you have the time, I would highly recommend you watch them because I think this knowledge of our past is interesting and beneficial to help us all better understand how we came to be who we are today. I’ll refrain from taking shots at Creationists who are being phased out by evolution as people get more aware and intelligent. 😉
