The 28-year-old filmmaker and erstwhile Current TV host Jason Silva is one of the youngest and most energized enthusiasts of our bio-engineered future. Mention “the singularity” and Jason’s face lights up. When he talks about being immortal, he’s not proving that old fogey idea that all kids think they’ll live forever. He’s exuberantly echoing the visions of his favorite scientists and philosophers.
To wit: his short documentary The Immortalists, which he made while working at Current (and which they declined to broadcast), and his next project, a little film he’s planning called “Turning Into Gods.” The concept trailer is above. All the valid concerns about human hubris and technological faith aside, it’s breathtaking stuff.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tommorow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
