While I am writing my next piece, I wanted to share this documentary so that others could see some of the ideals at work in technological advancement. There is a blend of Trans-humanist and New Age ideals at work within the scientific community, particularly as it pertains to human modification. There is a belief that not only is human consciousness evolving into godhood, but that it can be artificially stimulated. This film is lengthy, but certainly worth watching for those interested in the topics discussed here. Part one deals mostly with the idea of human modification from a technical standpoint, while the second and third parts deal with spiritual and moral issues that surround the subject. I thought a film might also be a welcome change of pace from the depth of reading material my posts usually incorporate. If well received, I may try to use pieces like this from time to time just to change things up.
