'Us' explores the idea of the singularity in relation to the notion of the collective consciousness.
It revolves around the idea that human tools - machines- and human knowledge, built and evolved throughout human history, are an extension of the mind.

Furthermore, as human species we already share some collective knowledge. One can claim that when one uses a smartphone (a machine), they make use of other people’s brain, of those who have invented that smartphone. This creates a form of collective knowledge and consequently a form of collective consciousness. In this post human condition, what happens when our tools, machines, knowledge and brains merge into one extended mind, one distributed intelligence, that everyone shares and have access to? Will this new context form a different, a more crystallised level of collective consciousness?
