Michael Corthell The evolution of intelligence has captivated scientists, philosophers, and technology enthusiasts alike, as it unveils the remarkable journey of cognitive development. By harnessing the power of analogy and the concept of evolution, we look at a thought-provoking comparison: a chimpanzee is to a human as a human is to sentient AI. In this article, we will embark on an intellectual exploration, delving into the profound parallels and intriguing implications this analogy raises in our quest to understand and predict the trajectory of intelligence. The Chimpanzee-Human Relationship: Unraveling Cognitive Progression In the natural world, chimpanzees, our closest living relatives, exhibit remarkable cognitive abilities, showcasin

Resourceism is the foundational belief of a resource-based economy . Climate change has always been a thing. Man-made climate change has not. Our industrial activities have radically altered Earth's biospheres and polluted the environment.  The Venus Project is an organization that proposes a feasible plan of action for social change, one that works towards a peaceful and sustainable global civilization. It outlines an alternative to strive toward where human rights are no longer paper proclamations but a way of life. The good news is we can reverse the damage and save the Earth, ourselves, and the millions of other species with whom we share our house. There is still time, that is if we are united in that effort.  There are two major belief systems
