Chapter 10

Chapter Ten describes how new religions will likely be developed in the future. However, there is a deep relationship between these new religions and the field of science. Granted, such new religions are likely to come from research laboratories, as opposed to the madrasas of the Middle East or the caves of Afghanistan. People are likely to see a lot of hope through the use of technology to resolve their day-to-day lives, leading to the possibility that “techno-religions may conquer the world by promising salvation through algorithms and genes” (Harari 386). Thus, people are likely to put more focus on various elements they have seen transpire in reality, as opposed to various actions around the world that are merely told as stories.

The author suggests that the increased belief by people in the power of technology is bound to create a huge effect. Technology is being used to create ‘a much superior human model.’ In this regard, human beings are likely to lose the level of attention they may need to have as it relates to the world around them (Harari 392). Therefore, human beings are bound to place more attention on the general effect that technology is likely to have, especially as it relates to the simplification of lives by the reduced need to think. There is also the indication that “different socio-economic realities and daily routines nurtured different states of consciousness” (Harari 293). Therefore, they are likely to showcase the abilities of self-awareness and -belief in dealing with their challenges.


The assertions provided for in this chapter provide a clear indication of the extent to which data is likely to play in the lives of people. “Improved Sapiens minds suddenly had access to the vast intersubjective realm.” Notably, people are likely to view it with a high level of importance, as they undertake some of the concepts hoping to solve the various problems they may experience over the years. Through this process, people are likely to have a deep understanding of the problems they experience, as well as the necessary measures they are likely to undertake to achieve success. Such people are also likely to attain success concerning the problems they have. Data will likely lead people to pinpoint some of the challenges they experience, as well as identifying specific measures that are likely to apply to them.
