Beyond our lifetime I can see us entrusting more and more thinking to AI because it can find correlations we can’t. At some point we might create an AI entity to think for us and make decisions for us, lile a mayor,
become slaves to it. We could call this God.
All we need is for a nuclear holocaust to wipe out most of our libraries, and humanity to lose knowledge/regress. Then people will pray to Siri and when she answers their prayers they will worship her.
