“There are few things of which the present generation is more justly proud than the wonderful improvements which  are daily taking place in all sorts of mechanical appliances… But what would happen if technology continued to evolve so much more rapidly than the animal and vegetable kingdoms?

Would it displace us in the supremacy of earth?

Just as the vegetable kingdom has slowly developed from the mineral, and as in like manner the animal supervened upon the vegetable, so now in these last few ages an entirely new kingdom has sprung up, of which we as yet have only seen what will one day be considered antediluvian  prototypes of the race…

We are daily giving greater power and supplying by all sorts of ingenious contrivances  that self regulating, self-acting power which will be to them what intellect has been to the human race.”

–Samuel Butler, 1863, four years after publication of Darwins’s The Origin of Species


GNR, as mentioned in the title, is in reference of the three areas of technology evolution that will soon cause the exponential shift, of which we are only experiencing the very first moments.

G – Genetics

N – Nanotechnology

R – Robotics

Very interesting to consciously experience this phenomena, from your parents to your kids, from your grandparents to your grandchildren and so on, life in an infinite loop of evolution and improvement.
