Best-selling author Zoltan Istvan joins hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon for a discussion of his widely acclaimed and controversial novel The Transhumanist Wager. This near-future thriller tells the story of a man determined to transform the world in his lifetime -- and he will stop at nothing to achieve his goal.
Topics will include
What are the real drivers of progress and how can they be accelerated? Or...do they need to be accelerated? Is progress occuring fast enough? Too fast? Is transhumanism best defined as quest for immortality and omnipotence? Is a war between transhumans (or posthumans) and a resistant world inevitable? Tune in and explore
About our guest
Bestselling author Zoltan Istvan, an American-Hungarian, began a solo, multi-year sailing journey around the world at the age of 21. His main cargo was 500 handpicked books, mostly classics. He's explored over 100 countries—many as a journalist for the National Geographic Channel—writing, filming, and appearing in dozens of television stories, articles, and webcasts. His work has also been featured by The New York Times Syndicate, Outside, San Francisco Chronicle, BBC Radio, NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, Animal Planet, and the Travel Channel. He is a philosophy and religious studies graduate of Columbia University and resides in San Francisco with his daughter and physician wife. Zoltan also blogs for Psychology Today and The Huffington Post.
CERN researchers believe they've discovered evidence of a new particle--possibly the graviton, which would support the theory that there are more dimensions than the four we perceive. Meanwhile, guys with too much time on their hands create and post what they claim is a wormhole in the sky over CERN.
Also: Problems with wearables, pet robot dogs, tech companies data mining schoolchildren, and an autonomous drone that carries people like a 21st century rickshaw.
Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon welcome philosopher and artificial intelligence reseracher Andrés Gómez Emilsson to discuss the Hedonistic Imperative and Andres' recent piece on Solving the World's Problems which lays out four scenarios for how we might do so:
1) Homogeneous world ideology
2) Widespread social reform (full justice, rights and healthcare)
3) Universally accessible on-demand mystical experiences
4) Globally available inexpensive hedonic tone recalibration
Which of the four would achieve the best results? Join us as we discuss.
Andrés Gómez Emilsson was born in México city in 1990. From an early age he developed an interest in philosophy, mathematics and science, leading him to compete nationally and internationally in Math and Science Olympiads. At 16 his main interest was mathematics, but a so-called mystical experience made him turn his attention to consciousness and the philosophical problems that it poses. He studied Symbolic Systems (with an Artificial Intelligence concentration) at Stanford, and later finished a masters in computational psychology at the same university. During his time at Stanford he co-founded the Stanford Transhumanist Association and became good friends with David Pearce, taking on the flag of the Hedonistic Imperative. Thus his ongoing interest in the functional, biochemical and quantum substrates of pure bliss. He is currently working at a Natural Language Processing startup in San Francisco, and in his free time he develops psychophysical tools to study the computational properties of consciousness (for more see qualiacomputing.com).

Over the years, Elana Freeland has been a Rudolf Steiner school pioneer, teacher, lecturer, storyteller, and writer. She has written for alternative publications, edited the stories of survivors of MK-ULTRA and ritual abuse, and is still ghostwriting books on diverse topics. During her undergraduate days, she studied biology. In 1996, she was awarded a Master of Arts in Great Books and honors for her thesis on historiography at St. John's College in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In June 2014, Feral House Books released Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth. Recently, the Australian magazine Nexus published her article on invasive electromagnetic weapons. Freeland is also the author of a fictional American history series called Sub Rosa America about the “deep politics” behind the downfall of the United States since John F. Kennedy's assassination. She has now begun the sequel to Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth, which will be about the next phase of the global chemtrails-ionospheric heater technology: the "space fence,” a world Smart Grid enabled by the ionized atmosphere we now breathe. Inside the space fence lockdown, humanity is to be neurologically herded toward a Transhumanist future. Freeland now lives in Olympia, Washington.
John Carosella hosts Convergence, a journey into shamanism, science, and mysticism, exploring our beautiful world. Making the mystical accessible to the scientific-minded, and bringing the language of science to the Mystery, John brings provocative, new perspectives to living, learning, healing, and discovery.
This month, John speaks with Lincoln Cannon, co-founder of the Mormon Transhumanist Association and philosopher of theological evolution and post-secular religion, about the nature of consciousness, thriving, and the role technology might play in the very near future. Their conversation includes an exploration of transhumanism - the use of technology to extend what it means to be human, and on the perspectives within Mormonism that make transhumanism and Mormonism such interesting bedfellows.
John is also joined by his Firefly Willows L*I*V*E! co-hosts HiC Luttmers and Mildred Lynn McDonald for a roundtable discussion on what it takes to stay young. As usual, HiC and Mildred Lynn come up with some surprising but sensible advice.
Join us for Convergence on Firefly Willows L*I*V*E!

IF AND when humanity builds an artificial superintelligence, will it be Bapticostal or Presbylutheran?
Seriously, the day is coming when people of faith will have to wrestle with the concept of spiritual machines. Zoltan Istvan, author of The Transhumanist Wager and candidate for president in 2016 on the Transhumanist Party ticket, discusses his recent article, "When Superintelligent AI Arrives, Will Religions Try to Convert It?"

Authors R. U. Sirius and Jay Cornell discuss their new book, Transcendence: the Disinformation Encyclopedia of Transhumanism and the Singularity.
In nearly ninety A-Z entries, Transcendence provides a multilayered look at the accelerating advances in artificial intelligence, cognitive science, genomics, information technology, nanotechnology, neuroscience, space exploration, synthetic biology, robotics, and virtual worlds that are making transhumanism a reality. Entries range from Cloning and Cyborg Feminism to Designer Babies and Memory-Editing Drugs. In addition, the book notes historical predecessors and personalities, both in mythology and history--ranging from Timothy Leary to Michael Jackson to Ray Kurzweil. It also introduces the culture around Transhumanism, covering all the geeky obsessions of the Transhumanist movement.

Tonight my very special guest is Elana Freeland.
Over the years, Elana has been a Waldorf school pioneer, storyteller, lecturer, and writer. For the past two decades, she has ghostwritten several books on diverse topics and edited the stories of survivors of MK-ULTRA and ritual abuse. She is the author of her own Sub Rosa America series, a fictional history of the United States since John F. Kennedy's assassination.
Her current book - Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth, is creating quite a stir. Elana’s book examines how chemtrails and ionospheric heaters like the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP) in Alaska services a full-spectrum dominance.
Along with discussing Chemtrails during our discussion tonight, Elana goes into great detail regarding the science and findings behind Morgellons Disease, the work of Clifford Carnicom and the transhumanist objectives of the global elites.

Rauni Kilde MD: There is no death; We are not alone in the universe; God is Love
-- Rauni Kilde MD, former Surgeon General of Finland explored key role that awareness plays in creating a positive future, especially in the inter-related areas of the human Afterlife, documented in her best-selling book "There is no Death"; interaction with Extraterrestrials, whom Dr. Kilde described from her personal experience with a species of extraterrestrials as interested positive evolution of humanity as a less developed species, and the Transhumanist Agenda of implants, electromagnetic and scalar mind control.
