After saying the Internet is a superorganism in which individuals are but single cells, Robert Wright says increasing interconnectedness brings forward wider spiritual concerns. "Since the Stone Age technology has been intertwining the fates of more and more people, and thus expanding their horizons of concern. If being woven into a giant global brain means the further intertwining of our fates with the fates of others, maybe there’s something to be said for giant global brains. And if people respond wisely to this spiritually challenging predicament, maybe the life of a cell won’t be such a bad life after all."
