Abstract:

"According to Dulchinos, the real action on the Internet isn't commerce or even research. It is, plain and simple, the realm of religion. But not that old-time religion. This book is about the spiritual impact of our increasing ability to communicate quickly and with enhanced evolution. It's about our search for meaning, our hunger for a glimpse of humanity's future-nothing less than the integration of information technology and body. Electronic prosthetics, direct neural implants, the brain's ability to control a mechanical limb move the boundary that used to exist between human and machine to some undefined frontier inside our bodies, our brains, and, perhaps, our minds." "Neurosphere combines information on technology and consciousness, along with personal stories, to make the technical accessible to the dreamer and the spiritual comprehensible to the skeptic. In Dulchinos's words and world, the Internet is rapidly becoming the central nervous system of a collective intelligence, a global brain, a giant leap forward in evolution. Book jacket."--Jacket.
