Ray Kurzweil writes about love: "And you can view it in an evolutionary perspective that there is actually value in us connecting to each other, because it leads to better protection of the species if we actually create communities based on love and act as a super organism as opposed to every individual for him or herself, which is actually not a good strategy overall."
We discuss his point, the idea of love as a human construct, collectivism vs individualism, the future of individualism, and the benefits of collective cooperation within hiveminds to spur collective intelligence for the continuation of the species.
