The Neo Syntients

"The technology already exists to build a system that will destroy the whole world, intentionally or unintentionally, if it just detects the right conditions," - Shlomo Zilberstein, a professor of computer science at the University of Massachusetts.

You'll hear a lot of talk about Humans vs. Robots scenarios.....however it is the middle path of the augmented Man/machine or Machine/man that I view as the most likely scenario...
The great divergence 
The Machine augmented Neo syntients and the ordinary humans.
Signs of the impending split:
Nano sized chips in pills and vaccines turning each person into a more efficient and track-able unit vs. social security number
GMO foods more suitable to neo syntient's functions
Geo engineering of climate to create a more plasma charged atmosphere to speed communications and control the noosphere. (entire atmosphere becomes networked display visible to neo syntients boosted vision)
Onboard or embedded interface for receiving immediate task skill instruction sets from the network (direct to brain computer learning).
Augmented capabilities above current human limits such  (super soldiers).
Enhanced psychic abilities with onboard nano managed chemical agents for burst mode of super human feats
Remote control activation destruct option for captured or compromised units.
Single neo sentient control of a flock of drones via thought.
Cloaking ability.

The Clone and Transhumanist Memes

Increasing use of Virtual presence vs. physical presence
Machines already trade most stocks….
Those machines are viewing news articles by programs  produced by machines that create them from available content.
Machine to machine communication is the fastest growing form of communication…
Machines filtering what humans write or post….
Oh and then theres this..In the continuing saga of data security firm HBGary, a new caveat has come to light: not only did they plot to help destroy secrets outlet WikiLeaks and discredit progressive bloggers, they also crafted detailed proposals for software that manages online “personas,” allowing a single human to assume the identities of as many fake people as they’d like.
Downvote bots……
and this:It is therefore not impossible that the government is hiring cheap labor to downvote stories on the social media sites which question the government, and to post pro-government comments.
Government propagandists, their hired private contractors and useful idiots are creating “downvote bots” or scripts to bury stories which question the government.
lots more in this vein…
the neo sentients aim to control both the merely human on one hand and the pure machine on the other…..
They aim to be superior to any machine or human by taking the best of both and starting down a new timeline….
How many of your "friends" are 100% organic "old school" humans?
