The Fourth Industrial Revolution and Davos

The Fourth Industrial Revolution and Davos

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau:

I had an opportunity to listen to your recent speech in Davos, Switzerland, and wish to offer an alternate point of view. The fourth industrial revolution actually began on February 15, 1946 when ENIAC was first introduced to the world. This was the age of computer technology.

We then entered the Fifth Industrial revolution in 2001 when scientists from all over this world decoded all three billion units that make up the human genome. This was the age of genetics.

While the day and year of the latest schism may be blurred, we have actually embarked on the Sixth industrial Revolution, and perhaps a “new age”. The Age of Transhumanism - the marriage of technology, biology and God.

Humanity has been cast adrift not knowing what this greatest of paradigm shifts brings to the future of Mankind. Artificial Intelligence, bionics, time and dimensional travel, robotics, chimeras and the manipulation of consciousness are all upon us.

The only question that presents itself is – “has humanity created its own extinction”? To some this conclusion may seem far-fetched, but I suggest that it is not. We need not worry about any class of people, simply the race.

Thank you,
Joseph Pede
