To be human is to be transhuman – Jason Silva

By April 2, 2014 One Comment

I’m a big fan of Jason Silva. He’s a modern day beat poet with a keen interest in the singularity – the point in the future when the human species transcends it’s biological form by merging with technology. Video is his medium and I’ve posted some of his work here before. His latest short video, embedded below, doesn’t disappoint. It’s titled ‘Shots of Awe’ and describes how to be human is already to be transhuman.

In it he quotes Eduardo da Silva making the great point that the period of natural selection has finished for the human race and that we now control our own evolution. That makes us the species that transforms and transcends itself, i.e. that is transhuman.

Enjoy 😉
