800 words after reading "A Brief History of Today":

This is the final part of the Juval Hera Trilogy. It mainly refers to the current problems of human society and the solution provided by himself. The first is to raise the current problems.

Due to the development of technology and the rise of artificial intelligence, it is possible that the speed of career elimination will be more rapid in the future. Eliminating a post in 10 years will become the norm, so how we should educate the next generation and what kind of worldview and values we have will become the key.

The skills that have just been learned in the university may disappear as soon as they graduate, and they are unemployed before they can find relevant jobs. Do students want to study in school for a few years without facing the same problem? In this case, mastering a specific skill becomes secondary, and understanding the world and some soft skills in communicating with people will become the key. Schools and families should focus more on cultivating children's good worldview and values, and have the ability to solve things, far beyond a specific skill.

Everything you see and hear now, every major technology company has worked hard to turn it into data, turning it into food for AI. In the future, it may not be you who knows you best, but AI algorithms. The more you know, the more you can control you. AI has become the next global religion.

To avoid this result, for every dollar invested to improve artificial intelligence for one minute, you should also invest one dollar and one minute to promote human awareness. Unfortunately, there is not much research and development on human consciousness. Our research and development of human capabilities are mainly to meet the urgent needs of the current economic and political system, not to keep human beings a conscious creature after a long time.


A large part of the book is about religion, because most of human history before relied on religion to unify social thinking and strengthen the concept of the state (us). But now, the function of religion is slowly degrading, weakening, and even becoming the object of people's ridicule. From this, a larger question is highlighted: What will humans rely on in the future to obtain affirmation of value and the meaning of survival?

Basically, the second half of the book is talking about this matter. I still recommend that you read the original work. I have limited abilities and cannot fully understand the truth. Can only say my own general understanding.

Both monotheism and polytheism are stories imagined by human beings, weaved out to convince the people, and rulers and religious cooperation have become interpreters of religious classics. This has led to various interpretations, divided into different religions, and caused fierce conflicts, such as Orthodox and Christianity, and many religions in India. In modern times, communication is advanced, information is spreading at the speed of light, and religions are increasingly unable to explain everything. So what should these believers do? Someone mentioned free will.

If the so-called "free will" means "free to do what you want," then humans do have free will. But if the so-called free will is to say that human beings have "the freedom to choose desire", then the answer is no. Humans do not have free will. The author finally gave his own answer: know who you really are.

We can learn from anthropologists, zoologists and astronauts. Anthropologists and zoologists spend years on distant islands, facing all kinds of diseases and dangers. Astronauts also have to take years of hard training to prepare for dangerous space exploration. If we are willing to put in so much effort to understand foreign cultures, unknown species, and distant planets, maybe we should also pay the same effort to understand the mind. And, before algorithms make all the decisions for us, it's best for humans to understand their minds as soon as possible.

The three books by Juval Heralli combine their knowledge in various fields such as history, biology, politics, psychology, computer science, etc., and explain their views on the development of human society and the formation of religion. , Also made some of his own predictions, the most important thing is to give some plans and views. We ordinary people may not have such knowledge as the author, but we can always remind ourselves from the author's point of view: this earth is the only place we can rely on to survive, it is extremely fragile. Environmental crises and social crises are likely not to be so far away. Everyone should strive to achieve energy conservation and environmental protection, raise their awareness, and at the same time have a global awareness. Author: Brain holes open up
