The Next Step: Exponential Life

This book presents a view of the potential of what are known as “exponential technologies”, considering their economic, social, environmental, ethical, and even ontological implications.

Emerging technologies will change, and are already changing, what have seemed to be the fundamental constants of human nature:  it now seems possible to drastically improve human memory, cognitive processes, and physical and intellectual capacities—even to the extent of extending our life expectancy to such a degree that it may actually change our concept of mortality.
