By the time the wheel was invented, thousands of pairs of legs had been rested. Horses were then employed to pull carts. As soon as Henry Ford produced the blueprints for the Oldsmobile in 1910, people started thinking about firing the horse as well as the coachman. The coachman is replaced by a driver who celebrates the era of the automobile revolution in a century. And soon all the drivers will also be fired.

Humanity will face an unforgiving hard time to fight against any kind of work that conventionally sustains their life. Trained horses can sniff, love, recognize faces, jump fences, and do a thousand things that million-dollar Ford Model Ts and Lamborghinis can't replicate, but still they get fired. Perhaps a few horses had neighed against the sacking, but which steam engine fanatic would care? The same will happen to humans in the future.

Drivers, even whoever is behind the wheel, will soon take a long break as soon as Google's automated self-driving cars (Google's Driverless Cars, 2005) are connected to the entire network of highways guided by an algorithmic system. The good news, we no longer find long traffic jams and traffic accidents caused by human error.

Call it any type of human occupation of this century: bank clerk, architect, soldier, stockbroker, tailor, civil servant or accountant, you name it. An fMRI scanner, for example, will function as a machine that almost never goes wrong. "Then what is left for the millions of lawyers, judges, police, and detectives?" Jordan Weissman says this in his journal at iLawyers. The good news is that no one has been able to bribe a machine yet?

Journalists may exaggerate that the Quakebot can only write straight news in a matter of seconds, which is dry with a human and literary touch. Even experts have planned to develop algorithms that are able to provide that touch, as easily as imitating the melody of composer Johann Sebastian Bach through EMI (Experiments in Musical Intelligence) technology. The good news is, there are no more typos and hoax news.

Likewise with doctors, Watson from IBM is developing artificial intelligence that can detect disease and eliminate the possibility of human physician malpractice. They are even able to string words together and detect the patient's emotions, as well as convey the sad news.

When this phenomenon is near and begins to devour the careers of our children who are currently absorbing long and exhausting conventional subject matter in their schools and colleges, should they start from scratch to learn new things?

Then who guarantees there will be such obsolete classes? When a non-human digital teacher or lecturer refuses to teach on a cheap whiteboard, but advocates a super-expensive helmet that is able to transfer all the knowledge and skills that humans should have throughout their lives in just a matter of minutes.

If this can be done to cloned humans in the films The Island and Moon, for example, then it can also be done to humans. Before we get there, let's consider the threat posed by 3D printers which are now capable of creating human organs, printing beautiful robots like ScarletJohansen, producing super cars with acceleration from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in just 2.5 seconds, and build a house super fast at a cost of only five percent of the manual way.

All that work is done by eliminating the way of life of millions of people. Don't tell me a 3D printer can't print a statue as great as Michelangelo's David, or a painting as grand as Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa, it can.

Can all these major changes be prevented as was the case with Emperor Vespasian or Queen Elizabeth I who rejected new inventions in order to keep their people working? It is true that political forces can prevent or at least delay the pace of technological history, for example for ethical reasons and dogma, human cloning has been stopped.

But how long can it be done? Humans are a place where mistakes are repeated. Will the future be patient with those repeated mistakes, including the passive killing, muscle weakness and long rambling of human laborers? If that has to happen, start by firing corrupt officials and lazy employees who like to play on their devices during working hours.

Talking about politics, politicians will not be free from the threat of dismissal. It is no longer possible for just anyone to plunge into the holy grail of politics only by relying on forms from political parties and narrow rhetoric, when a democratic society that is tired of demanding accurate and clean work results.

Microsoft's Cortana, Google Now and Apple's Siri have developed big data that can act as the most accurate predictor. By pressing digital buttons in an election period –or let's say in a round of regeneration of a leader or member of parliament– ​​it only takes a few seconds, until we welcome the new president and the greatest member of parliament. Maybe future officials are just symbols, one or two people is enough as a sign that we still have a (myth) state.

There will come a time, when ordinary humans who don't have enough money to buy and access super-tech in the future, are locked up in a giant time capsule that moves backwards.

Then a handful of world elites will transform themselves and their descendants into divine humans who stay alive and young forever through nano-sized war robot technology that is able to hunt down all the germs in their veins. To then be safe and peaceful in “heaven” served by digital angels.Is this a sign of the end of human civilization on the surface of the planet earth, or will supernatural reinforcements appear from the sky? ~
