Aaron Franz - The Age of Transitions
December 28, 2008
Aaron Franz is the filmmaker of "Age of Transitions", converging technology, transhumanism, and our future in the making. In this program he discusses the cutting edge group known as transhumanists, artifical intelligence, life extension, and cybernetics. He says what one must realize before getting carried away with such utopian dreams is that transhumanism was born out of the elitist pseudo-science eugenics. This documentary provides vital information on the history of eugenics and its new cutting edge transformation. We also discuss the propaganda and slow acclimatization to "invasive technology". In our members section, Aaron talks about the poster boys for the transhumanist movement: Ray Kurzweil, J Craig Venter, Aubrey de Grey, Nick Bostrom, Andees Sandberg, Kevin Warwick, Natasha Vitamore. Additionally, we talk about the potential threat of AI, the Singularity Institute, the Human Genome Project, the new millennium, the messiah complex, nanotechnology, UNESCO, Julian & Aldous Huxley and the NBIC report (Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information Technology and Cognitive Science).
