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.

Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon review The Declaration of Singularity.
Like the Founding Fathers, transhumanists and singularitarians believe that we are subject to an oppressive regime with no legitimate claim on our lives or our futures. Has the time come to declare our independence from a world of pain, scarcity, and limitations?
Hosts Phil Bowermaster and Stephen Gordon discuss the timing of the Technological Singularity:
...a hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence will have progressed to the point of a greater-than-human intelligence, radically changing civilization, and perhaps human nature.Since the capabilities of such an intelligence may be difficult for a human to comprehend, the technological singularity is often seen as an occurrence (akin to a gravitational singularity) beyond which the future course of human history is unpredictable or even unfathomable.
If it is going to happen, one of the critical questions is when. Ramez Naam has recently suggested that it probably won't be any time soon. But William Hertling says don't be too sure -- it could happen a lot faster than we think.
Who's right? Is the Singularity near?

The World Transformed presents the November Singularity Network video hangout.

Robert Cooper is joined yet again by Jesse Starcher as they talk about the newest album, "The Singularity, Phase 1: Neohumanity", from the band Scar Symmetry.
What's the difference between the original Delcaration of Independence and the Speculist's Declaration of Singularity?
Obviously one has already happened, and one has yet to happen. But what else? A few minor word changes aside, the big difference has to do with when things happen versus when they are declared to have happened.
What can we make about recent headlines concerning the Turing Test, self-Driving cars, and other developments? Do they change the Declaration at all?
Or maybe is it time for a new declaration altogther?

Tonight, I will be airing a pre-recorded interview that I did with Kris Wheeler. In this show we discussed the current financial situation, the need to limit your on-line profile, why you need to get out of debt and the significance of the coming "Singularity" as it relates to the New World Order and End Times events.
Knowledge shall be increased. We live in a day and age where the "amazing" has become commonplace, we have gotten so used to advanced technology to run our everyday lives.

"But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book,even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." Daniel 12:4
Charles Stross made his name with the 2005 novel Accelerando, which explores several generations of a single family as they travel through the Singularity -- the time when artificial intelligence and other technologies create beings with godlike intelligence and powers. Stross returns to the theme of machine intelligence with his latest novel Neptune's Brood, a space opera set thousands of years in the future. In Neptune's Brood, the robot successors to the human race attempt to follow a financial trail that might lead to history's greatest scientific breakthrough, or biggest scam. Neptune's Brood takes a science-fiction look at themes we explore every day at Internet Evolution: Machine intelligence, business, and the networked, information economy. Also: Space pirates!
