The Melding

poem by: JG Collins
Written on Nov 04, 2016

Watch the people.
They are changing 
right in front 
of our eyes.
Slowly,
 incrementally,
 they’re evolving, 
becoming something
else, 
something more, 
something different.

A new paradigm 
is emerging.
Not very many years ago 
people walked down 
the street 
looking straight ahead.

Today,
 they bow at the neck 
to the new god 
they made, 
worship, 
and are connected with.
Technology, 
information 
is now what 
they focus on 
and desire.
Soon, 
it will be connected 
to them, 
embedded 
into their heads.

Soon, 
they will access 
the sum 
of all 
human knowledge 
with just a 
thought.
Soon, 
they will communicate 
without speaking.
The global 
human neural net 
is evolving.
Soon, 
thereafter, 
it will merge 
with artifice intelligence.

Techno Sapiens 
will then emerge.
New gods
will then have
arrived 
on the scene.
Where it goes 
from there, 
is anybody’s guess!
