HOMO DEUS: A BRIEF HISTORY OF TOMORROW BY YUVAL NOAH HARARI – FREE EBOOKS DOWNLOAD
If you are the brightest members of the species Homo, you should know that artificial intelligence is definitely going to change society radically. People become Homo Deus, a Superman. Bioengineering, artificial intelligence — upgrade abilities. And computer games will fill the void. It sounds like dystopia, scary, until you realize that in fact, for thousands of years people have always played in a virtual game in reality. So far, we just called them religions.
In Judaism or Christianity or any other religion, you invent rules that don’t exist anywhere except in your imagination. You spend your life trying to score points and avoid all kinds of things that distract from your points. And if, when you die, you collect enough points, then go to the next level of life, in heaven. Billions of people have found meaning in their lives, playing these games.

People live within the “intersubjective reality” — countries, borders, religions, money, and all large-scale, man-made. People live in the flexible cooperation between the various separate groups of people. A huge person’s ability to make sense of his actions, has allowed him to exercise his many accomplishments.
Humanism is a form of religion that worships humanity instead of God. Mankind and his desires as the highest priority in the world, as the dominant creatures. In the twenty-first century, humanity will push people to seek immortality, happiness and strength.
Technology will force humanity to give meaning to his life in the new conditions that have arisen in the course of evolution. The book “Homo Deus: a brief history of the future” prophesies the transition of humanity in superelement, the upcoming replacement of Homo sapiens into a superhuman — from Homo Sapiens to Homo Deus (man-God), endowed with supernatural powers, such as eternal life and eternal youth.

Just pleased pleasant popular scientific narrative style, the author presses his opinions, does not claim to be a guru.
