Without any doubt, mechanization brings advantages. If nothing else, mechanization eliminates human error by eliminating jobs. That is the purpose of mechanization. It brings down the size of payrolls while it improves the quantity and quality of production and reduces the unit cost of production. Robots don't take coffee breaks. They don't go on strike and are always on the job on Blue Mondays. They don't take sick-leave and they don't even talk back to the boss or ever give him the finger.
The only reason why mechanization has never yet eliminated people — (other than that machines were designed, produced and used for the large-scale killing of people in "military" actions) — is because nobody has so far made a serious effort to mechanize humans, but that is now changing. Government agencies in the U.S., in Japan and in Europe are hard at work to create a hive mind and hope to have it working by the end of the 21st century.
With knowledge no longer encapsulated in individuals, the distinction between individuals and the entirety of humanity would blur. Think Vulcan mind-meld. We would perhaps become more of a hive mind — an enormous, single, intelligent entity.

The U.S. National Science Foundation, the U.S. Department of Commerce and their allies in Japan and Europe hope to bring about that ultimate goal, to promote and establish a global hive mind by the end of the 21st century. They posit that not only is that goal feasible but also that it is quite likely to be achieved during the course of this century.
The process they use is to converge efforts in the fields of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, human cognition and social sciences by giving them a common goal, the creation of electronic brain-to-brain and machine-to-brain interfaces, the creation of built-in brain- and body-enhancers.
The aim is to create artificial intelligences that will logically and eventually merge into one single super intelligence. The new intelligence, perhaps a hybrid of human and machine thought, will ostensibly be able to give immortality to humans. If thoughts and conscience can be transmitted electronically, they can also be stored electronically – theoretically indefinitely.
The new intelligence or hive mind will live in and by means of the Internet and be tightly and directly interconnected with manufacturing processes for the production of consumer goods and with processes that will monitor, control, improve and optimize its existence and functioning.
Not only will the hive mind have been brought to life by the end of this century, it will offer the lure of immortality, enhanced body functions and vastly improved brain power for all those who join it, give them virtually instant communication with one another and make them potentially unimaginably powerful. That what makes us human and what comprises mankind, e. g.: individual personalities, will then no longer exist.
There will no longer be the need to feel pain, hunger, lust and pride. Gone, too, will be the need for humans to reproduce sexually, and they will no longer require material possessions.
How can that vision possibly fail? After all, it will save the globe, and the proponents of that vision insist that the end of mankind by transforming it into the hive mind is the only way by which the globe can be saved.
Mack White (in Television and the Hive Mind) warns, though, that a hive mind is without fail ruled by a queen. That is true of the ants, the termites and the bees, but it may be that the hive mind will become so totally and tightly integrated that it will be the queen and nothing else. It will have no use for soldiers or armies, for politicians, administrators and workers. All work necessary to maintain itself, to bring about the elimination of mankind and to save the globe will be done by machines that it will control directly without human intervention. Therefore mankind will be neither needed nor wanted. Mankind will be replaced.
Mack White's article drew my attention to the U.S. Government report Converging Technologies for Improving Human Performance. When I first read his commentary, I saw that he was telling the truth about the rapidly progressing evolution of propaganda strategies and tactics. At first I had misgivings about Mack White's claim that the ultimate goal is to achieve not only a hive-mind mentality for mankind but to transform mankind into a hive mind in spirit and in body. I thought that, surely, he had chosen the expression hive mind because he had taken the view of a science fiction writer in describing a hypothetical concept.
After I downloaded the report Converging Technologies and began to read it, I soon saw that I had assessed his commentary wrongly and that Mack White is absolutely and totally correct in every aspect of it.
The tool that will be used for the creation of the global hive mind is miniaturization of data processing devices by bringing the size of data storage elements down to the molecular level. The principle to be used for data storage will be to alter the orientation of the spin of individual electrons, to switch it on and off by altering the orientation, and thereby to make it possible to have electronic data processing devices the size of individual molecules and only a few nanometers or less apart. Thereby it may be feasible to reduce the size of computers with processing power equal to the human brain to a size that will theoretically be smaller than the human brain.
These computers will not only be super-small, their data storage and processing capacity will be vastly greater than that of super computers. Moreover, these super-small, super-powerful super computers will be super-fast, about a thousand times faster than the human brain.
The next logical step is to use these super-small computers for the storage of some or all of the knowledge of individual people. After that it becomes an inevitable progression to electronically link the "minds" so stored, thereby joining them into a hive mind. Through that the knowledge of individual "minds" becomes accessible to all other stored "minds". The consequence of that will be that individual "minds" can gain access to any portion or all of the knowledge stored in the hive mind, but why stop there? Theoretically, the power of the hive mind to use and process data will be unprecedented and of unimaginable proportions, quality and speed.
The wish and the will to convert mankind to a hive mind exists. Moreover, powerful government agencies and government-funded research laboratories are hard at work to make that wish into reality by the end of this very century. It is a logical progression in evolution guided by man's- and not God's will.
The developed nations ignore and even abrogated God. Humans have a fundamental yearning for God. Even those who hate Him prove through their hatred of Him that God exists – never mind whether anyone lives with or by God's rules, feels that God's rules are arbitrary human inventions or thinks that a better human existence can be created by abolishing what he thinks is a useless, archaic, superstitious concept.
As soon as mankind abolishes God, the deeply-felt fundamental human yearning for God will nevertheless then require that mankind put itself into the place of God – not only on Earth but also within our galaxy. The proponents of the hive mind propose in essence that it is mankind's duty to become a hive mind for two reasons, to save the globe and to conquer the galaxy. Moreover, they say that without mankind becoming a hive mind Earth will perish and with it all of mankind, and that mankind has no practical method at its disposal by which to begin the conquest of our galaxy unless mankind metamorphoses into a hive mind.
It seems that a better title for the U.S. Government report on the state and goal of the effort to transform mankind into a hive mind would be Making Mankind into God.
Mankind's suicide through becoming a hive mind, too, will be proof of His existence. There can be no life without God. Mankind's denial of God is mankind's death. It is not a question of whether but when that death will occur, and the following excerpts for Converging Technologies contain the time table.
New professions for humans and new roles for machines may arise to mediate between all this complexity and the individual person. Art, music, and literature may attain new levels of subtlety and sophistication, enhancing the mental qualities of life and the innate human appreciation for beauty. 
That statement appears to be based on- and contains faulty logic. If, as the authors state on page 165 of their report, personalities may no longer exist on account of the inability of individuals to experience pain, hunger, lust and pride, would it then not follow that then the capability to wish for pleasure or even to feel it no longer exists, and that to cater to it is then no longer necessary? In the hive mind, pleasure is as much of a nuisance as is pain.
Then again, the quoted paragraph uses the modifier may, twice, and therefore it seems that the concession is made that quite likely in the hive mind the inconveniences of pain, pleasure, love and all of the other personal experiences and emotions that make us individuals will no longer exist. Therefore, personalities will no longer be needed or even wanted. Far out? Consider what the authors of the report think will be possible in that respect:
Understand how the human perception of mind arises from the brain. Formalize in neural network models operating on traditional hardware. Thus, intelligences akin to humans will reside in the Internet. These intelligences, not being physically limited, will merge and transform themselves in novel ways. The notion of discrete intelligence will disappear. 
"Intelligences akin to humans"? Akin may mean nothing anymore. The hive mind intelligence will not be mankind and quite possibly not even be kind to man.
