Yuval Noah Harari
- Since the verbal/language revolution around 70,000 years ago, human beings live within “imaginary orders” such as countries, borders, religion, money, all created by man in order to enable large-scale cooperation between different individual human beings.
- Humankind’s immense ability to give meaning to its actions and thoughts is what enabled it to carry out its many achievements.
- Humanism, worship of humankind, putting mankind and its desires as a top priority in the world while basing itself as the dominant being.
- The threat which technology has over humankind and humanism and the continued ability of humankind to give meaning to its life under new conditions which have arisen and prophesying the coming replacement of humankind with a super-man or a Homo Deus (God-man) endowed with supernatural abilities such as eternal life.
