Earlier we have described our views about the "SEVENTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION" as follows :
We believe that the seventh industrial revolution (approx. 1990) truly began with the common use of personal computers and instant Global Internet around 1990 which ran parallel with the more or less unrestricted employment of cheap (computer-screen) workers in increasing numbers from anywhere in the world and movement of (parts of) companies to similar (low cost) places .
When comparing earlier definitions of the GLOBAL MIND and /or the GLOBAL BRAIN our position has been that they where often beautiful anticipations of what could happen on our planet when Humanity would grow into a species realizing they where "one Global entity". We have regarded this as magnificent metaphysical views .
Our own definition is based on the reality of GLOBALLY LINKED COMPUTERS as the hardware component (The "GLOBAL BRAIN") and the software contents of them as the GLOBAL MIND (see : global mind and global brain) . These are physical systems . Systems in reality .
Regarding YOUR PERSONAL IMMORTALITY we say that this is now no longer a metaphysical phenomena ( see : relevant search results) but a physical phenomena a reality , based on our rate of progress since the industrial revolutions began , notably since the beginning (of our interpretation ) of THE SEVENTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION .
We will have to (learn) to incorporate this reality in our considerations such as specified in our update of 27 March 07 .
We will be pleased to elaborate on this text depending on inputs we receive .
In haste ,
JAS & JPK
