Who Is the “Sence” in Essence
We draw upon the differences in what may be regarded as the essence between Homo sapiens and Homo futuro. In some respects, the difference presumably includes potentialities, where categories of thought and sensory experience matter. We analogize this to a blind person, who would not have the capacity to judge an art exhibit, thus lacking one of the categories required to judge the event. Likewise, we consider how we modern humans might react to a world where Homo futuro has a vision, either actual or metaphorical, to access domains of knowledge or creativity currently inaccessible.
