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.

AreYouScreening.com and BFCA critic, Marc Eastman, and co-host extraordinaire Shane Leonard review Transcendence, answer listener questions, and give a quick rundown on upcoming films.
It's sort of a slow week in the movie world, unless you're a fan of serious and/or comedic horror, and we took a week off for Easter, so we're catching up with the latest from Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman.
This one hasn't been getting the greatest response from all fronts, but is there more going on here than meets the eye? We'll let you know.
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.
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.
This week the Black Geeks review "Transcendence" starring Johnny Depp. Tune in today to find out what we thought of this sci-fi action flick.
From IMDb - As Dr. Will Caster works toward his goal of creating an omniscient, sentient machine, a radical anti-technology organization fights to prevent him from establishing a world where computers can transcend the abilities of the human brain.
One of the most highly-anticipated films of 2014 was the science fiction movie, Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, and Paul Bettany. When the film was released, however, it received very poor reviews and barely recovered its investment at the box office. In the aftermath, analysts surmised that this was because many of those who went to see the film were expecting a typical action-oriented summer film, instead of a quieter story that ponders the deeper questions of life and what it means to be human.
In the film, Dr. Will Caster (played by Johnny Depp) is working to create a sentient computer -- a machine which would amass unto itself all the knowledge ever gained by mankind. Not only would the sentient computer be smarter than all of humanity put together, but it would also be able to think, feel, and relate like a rational human being. Dr. Caster believes that such technology would create a "technological singularity" in which artificial intelligence would surpass human intelligence for the first time in history causing human civilization to be radically changed. He calls this possible achievement "transcendence."
Despite Will's insistence that such technology would allow humanity to solve many of its problems, some do not agree with him, and they believe such an advancement would endanger humanity. A radical anti-technology group known as RIFT shoots Will and attacks artificial intelligence labs across the country.
