Transcendent Man

Transcendent Man” is documentary about the life and work of Ray Kurzweil. Incredibly fascinating. Kurzweil is a ‘futurist’ who specializes in the study of exponential growth of information technology as well as the interface between biology and machine. He talks about the point of accelerating returns in genetics, robotics, and nanotechnology which will eventually lead us to an event he calls the “singularity”. At this point anything is possible. Perhaps, if Teilhard de Chardin is right and matter and spirit are one then an “Omega Point” is closer than we might have ever predicted. Enjoy:
