5) Technology is not what we seek but how we seek: the tools should not become the purpose. Yet increasingly, technology is leading us to ‘forget ourselves’.
6) Efficiency should never become more important than humanity, because not everything that can be automated, should be – and happiness cannot be automated.
7) Humanity will change more in the next 20 years than the previous 300 years (yes, seriously). It’s time to decide what we want to be.
8) To safeguard humanity’s future, we must invest as many resources in human happiness and the continued flourishing of humanity as we do in developing new tools and technologies. Exponential technologies need exponential humanity; every great algorithm needs a great androrithm!
9) We are at the pivot point of exponential and combinatorial technological evolution: all around us, science fiction is becoming science fact – and the future will increasingly arrive gradually then suddenly. We need to proceed with a very wise combination of precaution and pro-action.
10) The immediate future clearly is all about technology yet the bigger future lies in transcending it
