Transcendent Man is going to be an interesting move to see. Just watch this trailer…

Filmmakers Barry and Felicia Ptolemy (Ptolemaic Productions) documented Kurzweil’s life for two years in 25 cities in five countries, as he explored the social and philosophical implications of the coming profound changes and the potential threats they pose to human civilization in presentations and dialogues with 22 noted luminaries such as Colin Powell, Peter Diamandis, Dean Kamen, William Shatner, Stevie Wonder, and Kevin Warwick.

“My ideas [in the film] challenge people’s most basic assumptions about life, death, and what it means to be human,” said Kurzweil. In his post-biological world, there will be no clear distinction between human and machine and real reality and virtual reality, human aging and illness will be reversed, world hunger and poverty will be solved, and we will ultimately cure death, he says, revealing in the film that he intends to bring back his father, composer Fredric Kurzweil.
