TURNING INTO GODS is a new feature length documentary exploring mankind's journey to 'play jazz with the universe'... it is a story of our ultimate potential, the reach of our intelligence, the scope of our scientific and engineering abilities and the transcendent quality of our heroic and noble calling.
"We are as gods," says Stewart Brand, "and we might as well get good at it."
The teaser Features soundbites from some TED Talks and a 'Tedify' tribute by Maria Popova.. as well as other miscellaneous clips.

Well according to the bible humans were living to the age of 800 on a regular basis back then, so why is that so bad?
If 'god' didn't intend for us to do this then why didn't 'he' make a monument or something with clear commands and reasons why he made those commands? If 'he' gave us the capacity to attempt to do these things and we obviously have a motivation to then it seems like he designed us to fail.

That was a cool post, the trailer seemed cool too. Who knows maybe in 300 or 400 years but it just seems too hard now to even try. To inherit the Universe through immortality is prolly just the beginning though.
Is it turn man into God as in one with God or turn them into Gods? Either way the creator will always have a part in writing us in his Universe. All I know is my heart is to sour to do any good as I am currently, I am damaged goods and I pass on such a oppitunity. I actually want good to happen to the Universe, my Imagination is out of control so I would only hurt the betterment of our great human socity. Unfortunitly. Then again though I heard it is not a race so maybe the human race won't turn into control hungry haters if the cards are played right. It had to do alot about love and I am not that good a feeling love, I am too concerned with what others think about me causeing fear limiting my ability to show my true of what could have been. Who knows maybe more stuff is after breathe is done. I just hope my memory is erased kinda or there is a track that is automatic that turns me into the man I would like to be, a loving one.

Until the day comes that man can make water, one of the most simple and basic, not to mention needed, things on this planet, we will never be god-like IMO.
