This will blow your mind….we are the gods now, apparently

A modern day philosopher who uses the medium of super short film to communicate his more intense ideas on life and the universe. Philosophy meets Science meets Art.

In this clip from the recent Festival of Dangerous Ideas in Sydney (let’s all go next year) Jason Silva introduces a couple of quick films, described as philosophical shot of expresso, one of which espouses his theory that technology and humans will increasingly be seamlessly interlinked and this is the secret to our immortality. (The whole clip shown here is his seminar, just over half an hour, but trust me, it is worth it. He is also cute as a button which makes it even more watchable).

I am not sure I altogether agree with him but he puts up a very convincing argument and it has been a while since I have heard such a totally original viewpoint on life, the universe and beyond.

Brace yourself.

    Festival of Dangerous Ideas? Yesss! Must google to see when it’s on this year. I’m up for it. Wow what an interesting guy – speaking on permanent fast forward! Love his idea of compressed videos. Envy his skill in putting them together. He is gorgeously optimistic at his age and I hope he manages to stay that way as life inevitably throws him challenges. He reminds me of being at a Business and Consciousness conference in Mexico a whole 13 years ago when a speaker said something I’ve remembered ever since – that the world was immersed in a struggle between wisdom and wizardry. It’s even more so now. Jason Silva seems to be tackling that struggle at full speed.
