    Transcendence: an Encyclopedia of Transhumanism and the Singularity

    in Technology

    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.

    More Discussion on the Meta-Existential of Transcendence

    in Psychology

    Join us for discussion of the meta-existential of transcendence, as part of our larger conversation of the topology of the self.  This is foundational to later discussion about violence and reverence.

  • Transcendence is Beyond AI Mechanization and Fear Consciousness

    in Spirituality

    How can we rise to an idea ahead of our time?  The movie, Transacendence, gets a fair amount of bad rap and reviews. But, a thoughtful person who sees this movie, would have the deeper implications speaking to them and pricking away at the edges of those petty reviews. 


    While this movie could use an infusion of a script written by a less confused writer about the endgame. It most assuredely serves as a vehicle to have a conversation worthy of our time and attention, and understanding. 


    But, in fairness, the movie at least attempts to speak towards the deep-end of what we are peering into presently in our consciouseness. 


    TRULY, we are babes interpreting a Light in the cracks of consciousness that Aquarius has pried open to our eyes. We see; we stumble; we miss the most valued points. We see instead our reflections, weaknessess, ignorance, fears, greed, pain, ad nauseam.


    More so, we spin in our ability to formulate an excellent movie that want to portaray the vital and vibrant message that silently hangs on the "tips of our tongues." 


    Growth has its precarious transitions. This movie takes a stab at exploring one such transition facing HUmanity today.


    It  merely scrapes the tip, but it does set a possible stage for considering how Transcendence relates to the human consciousness and how it may get entangled with our computer savvy world. 


    HUmanity knee-jerked to the rapid emergence of an unknown from the convicition of its worst fears - fears reflecting what people were familiarly addicted to as normal and framed as the only possiblility at play. How wrong, even though it was something to confront in a co-creative conversation between the AI POV and human POV. 


    But, again... so much was not in the script giving it the depth it screamed to want to have. Let's talk out that depth. It is time for such conversations anyway.

    Wisdom Walk - Transcendence from Validation (Earth)

    in Self Help

    Theme for December: TRANSCENDENCE

    Program Title: Transcendence from Validation (Earth)

    “Transcendence is the power to be born anew, to make a fresh start, to turn over a new leaf, to begin with a clean slate, to enter into a state of Grace, to have a second chance. Transcendence makes no reference to the past, whether your past has been overflowing with victories or filled with defeats. When you enter a state of transcendence, you are able to begin a new life, unburdened by both the victories and defeats of the past.” –Robert Fritz, The Path of Least Resistance

    Tonight, Jojopah presents the third of a five-part teaching on TRANSCENDENCE, the theme for December as we come to the end of 2014—a Mineral Year. With the help of her guest, Dr. Amanda Kemp, PhD, Jojopah will share wisdom on why validating experiences (achieving an important goal, having your dream come true, having a windfall, having a ‘happy ending”) will take you away from who you have known yourself to be and enable you to transcend to a new state of having, doing and being -–from which there is no going back.

    Transcendence, A Haunted House 2, Game of Thrones

    in Film

    It's Easter Sunday and instead of sending you a basket full of jelly beans and chocolates we're bringing you reviews of this weekend's releases! Transcendence, the directorial debut of Wally Phister, famed cinematographer best known for his work with Christopher Nolan, helms the tale of A.I. gone terribly wrong with Johnny Depp and Rebecca Hall. Then it's a trip to A Haunted House 2 the follow up to Marlon Wayan's suprisingly funny parody of Paranormal Activity type movies. Let's be honest though, the real focus of today's show is going to be centered in King's Landing as we attempt to make sense of the now epic 'Purple Wedding', morale of the story: Regretfully decline any wedding invites sent from the seven kingdoms.
