Here, we ask the question, for a civilisation to have torch drives, strong AI, anti-gravity and FTL, how would humanity change? How would civilisations arrange themselves into a future one might wish to live in, believe in, or fight for?
What if we embraced the strangeness such a future would entail, a ‘pan-humanity’ where the barriers between naturally born personalities and artificial cease to exist?
What if we met the challenge provided by our harsh, violent, mechanical universe with technologies that fortified and strengthened us a thousand fold?
What if, as we learned to bend the universe and re-write the laws of nature in order to circumvent the speed of light, other possibilities were revealed?
What if we became Gods?
