Aaron Franz who is behind the film "Age of Transitions" joins us to talk about the film, his background and some of the research that is discussed in the film. We talk about transhumanism, technological progress, microchips, man merging with machine, cyborgs, eugenics, the theory of evolution, cognitive neuroscience and much more. We also discuss propaganda and the slow acclimatization to "invasive technology". Where do we draw the line when it comes to technology, is glasses or a pacemaker going too far? How big is the leap from there to an implantable microchip. We round things up in the first segment to talk about alchemy and the male creative aspect. Don't miss our continuation in our members section as we talk more about the poster boys for the transhumanist movement: Ray Kurzweil, J Craig Venter, Aubrey de Grey, Nick Bostrom, Anders Sandberg, Kevin Warwick, Natasha Vitamore. We also talk about nanotechnology, UNESCO, Julian & Aldous Huxley and we go into some more detail on the NBIC report on Converging Technologies. Don't miss this very interesting and important program.
