Ideas Worth Spreading

Science is close to finding the Holy Grail, the Fountain of Eternal Youth. Thanks to advances in biotechnology, robotics, artificial intelligence, and genetic engineering, amortality (being unable to die from disease or age) if not complete immortality appears to be within our grasp. The big question we should be asking about our future is changing from if we CAN live forever, to if we SHOULD live forever. This talk explores the quest for Transhumanism (the belief the human race can evolve beyond its current physical and mental limitations, especially by means of science and technology, and ultimately end human suffering) and the ethics of super-longevity.
