To be human means to be a work in progress

Science will never resolve these disagreements and converge on a single, true theory of what we are, for two reasons. One is that we will never have a “consciousness meter,” an objective means of measuring consciousness in non-human things. The other is that we are too protean, too creative, to be captured by single theory. Science itself keeps transforming us, with technologies as diverse as brain implants, genetic therapy and LSD and ideas as diverse as queer theory and integrated information theory. To be human means to be a work in progress.


  1. “Ego keeping a lid on ids”…😉…heheh..some like taking a peek at what swims in the pot…curious

  2. All nature is like that. Not just humans. All living and all inanimate things change.

    Omnia mutantur, nihil interit — Ovid

  3. True. However one can choose to be a work in progress but not heed to the moral responsibility of their commitments. What a disgrace!

  4. Being a curious human, who will never stop asking why, keeps me forever learning.


    I am defiantly a progressive work in a forever “living” process ☺️

  5. Kelly James Merit sounds like you have a firm grip on what and where you going in life. I too am always asking WHY! GOOD LUCK TO YOU

  6. Curiosity kills the cat Life will carry on as in a dream sometimes happy sometimes sadness.but it will continue on without ending, unless you believe in reincarnation and return to do some unfinished business.

  7. As long as there are humans Science will be infinite. We have inherit a Dna that refuses to die and remain restless since the beginning of time.

  8. Human civilisation is just like a train dashing straight on there can have hiccups along the way. There are further dimensions to explore. We hardly scratch the surface!

  9. Eng Yeo I’ve enjoyed reading your thoughts…I think curiosity invites discovery…humanity is definitely a work in progress…with exciting possibilities for the future

  10. Stupid fucking dualists.

  11. Or, the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

  12. Dmt psychedelics expand and grow people

  13. Never say never. What if we did discover who we are? Is that a bad thing? Computers certainly will be the ones who will discover the conundrum. Not the brain.
