Time magazine covered Ray Kurzweil and the movie Transcendent Man. This may be one of the steps on the way to the Singularity and Immortality becoming mainstream. Congrats to the director, Barry Ptolemy, and his team.

The film introduces the ideas of Kurzweil who journeys the world offering his vision of a future in which we will merge with the super-intelligent machines we have created and can live forever…all within the next thirty years!
Kurzweil predicts that with the ever-accelerating rate of technological change, humanity is fast approaching an era in which our intelligence will become increasingly non-biological and trillions of times more powerful than today. This will be the dawning of a new civilization that will enable us to transcend our biological limitations. In Kurzweil’s post-biological world, there will be no clear distinction between human and machine, 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.
Transcendent man is coming soon to theaters but here is the trailer. This will be a great documentary!
