What Does It Mean To Be A Human In 2024?

With all the recent changes happening, are we destined for a brighter future of awakening? Or are we heading towards a future where we slowly lose the battle to the machines and begin to automate and outsource the human soul until there's nothing left?

Sometimes I feel like I am in a bubble - in fact, I know that I am. However, I did design my life this way and more recently I have been asking larger questions and I thought I'd share a bit of my thought process around what we will be seeing more of as we continue in this world together.
With the recent advances in technology, it's as if we're right on the brink of a breakthrough in rapid changes for civilization. I would know, I use these various technologies daily, and it has not only changed the way I work, it's always changed the way I process reality.
While all of these changes in our world are good and the landscape of the technological revolution is near, to match my own personal case, the collective consciousness of humanity is appearing to always be flooded with new features and systems, much of which most people are unaware of.
It's strange, that at at the same time of a mass awakening, we also receive new insights into creating better technologies, and eventually (soon) conscious technology.
Now, there's debate of what exactly constitutes Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), to me personally we basically already have in some forms as these AI's already surpass human intelligence in a variety of areas we only thought up until recently that humans would remain dominant in.
All of this has gotten me to question. What Does It Mean To Be A Human Now?
It's not as easy of a question to answer as you might think because in over the last 100 years, we as humans have fundamentally changed. In fact, if you were to take someone from the 1920's or even later and teleport them to where we are now in society, it would be a complete culture shock almost to the point of disbelief.
In that same way those older days before the new advancements in everything, we are in the 2020's for what in the people in the 2120's will look back upon with what would even be more greater things to share.
I've often wondered if the fabric of our reality is a fixed and solid state, always there waiting for us to access it's potential, or if it is a field waiting for us to create with it, like designing our own images onto the canvas of life and making it our own. These ideas are not relatively new, as they are constantly becoming recognizable symbols of freedom even the younger generations are catching onto it.
The theme of these past years has been Freedom. To feel free, to be physically free, mentally free, spiritually free.

The way I see it is the human spirit is wanting to adopt the new paradigm of viewing reality as if it is something we can actively design and communicate to others our findings of the world.

With all the social internet platforms, our ability to share anything at will, and download ideas into our mind infinitely - we are truly in the time of endless creation.
So, is this the purpose of humans now? Throughout our history we have had several awakenings to what we can do and create. Most recently with Artificial Intelligence, you can basically make anything you want - whereas these creative powers where guarded to the individuals who possessed the gift to see into that world - now, a machine can do it. And it can probably do it better than most artists, even in it's infancy.
It's as if we're entering into the age of Hyper Personalization where all your apps, devices, relationships (personal or artificial) are going to be the priority going forward, in some ways you could call it a worshipping of the self and ensuring consistent service of all that you like and want, right at your fingertips. Whether it's digital services or new business models, we're definitely entering into an era where it's all about Me. And is that such a bad thing?

Do This Instead Of Your Spiritual Practice

Sometimes the best thing that you can do right now to awaken, is to actually do something. The answers that you’re looking for, are closer to the edge of where you have completed some task to get there, at least most of the time. Don’t use your spiritual practice to avoid something you really want to be doing instead.
