The Optimised Self

Humanity is on a quest. It is not a quest for perfection, but for optimisation – to be the optimal versions of ourselves, the most effective and the most efficient that we can be. For The Optimised Self, there is no end of the journey, no perfect self – but there is continual improvement. We will discover how humans are improving themselves and their surroundings further in:
