As science - and everyday life - accelerate exponentially it becomes harder and harder for human beings to understand and adjust to the exciting new world that we are creating. Are we, as some pundits claim, moving towards a world where humans will need to become “post-human” to cope, or is it possible that we are building a new world, not for ourselves, but for a new dominant species?
