The world as we know it is exponentially evolving, according to Moore's law. Some believe "Singularity" or an "Intelligence Explosion" could occur as early as 2045. Humans as a species have not had to attempt to understand themselves as much as we will be forced to in a few short years. Humans will be compelled to make new moral and ethical decisions about what constitutes the meaning of life. What are the moral implications of living multiple lives in different bodies? How would our perspective of purpose, goals, education, age, life and death change? How would you live your life differently if you could choose different lifetimes? Whose body would you choose? We could no longer assume someone's emotional age by looking at their body's biological age. As humans, our entire lives are compartmentalized by eras, delineated by expectations of age; all that would change.
A cataclysmic evolution of the concept of self could take place within the span of one generation. The Exchange: Mind to Body, the Next Evolution explores the possibilities this dramatic event could have on the future of humanity.
The government always seeks to regulate its constituents. How would they control the right and freedom to exchange? Who would be allowed access to a new technology, which would be a metamorphosis of self? How could corruption and greed be controlled, and individuals protected from those who seek to manipulate technology for personal or political gain? How would this affect crime, identifying suspects, tracking individuals, and punishment? The Exchange identifies some of these potential future complexities to our safety and security.
The Exchange is the first of a three-part, fast-paced, tantalizing and riveting around-the-world trilogy.
