In the twenty-first century, humans are likely to make a serious bid for immortality….Humans always die due to some technical glitch….Nothing metaphysical about it. It is all technical problems. Then of course, no discussion techno-utopianism would be complete without Ray Kurzweil, who posits a “technological singularity” which would provide for a personalized and totally controlled universe for every human, one where they would be in complete control to experience whatever they desired, for all eternity, once we all upload our consciousnesses into the cloud.Transhumanism: The new religion of the coming technocracy « AxisOfEasy
AGR – Of course, some high tech monopoly like Microsoft or Google is going to be in charge of the ‘cloud’ and charges for this immortality.
And if you do not have the money to PAY for immortality, well then, off you go to the bowels of eternal life in HELL. More than likely, there will be a monopoly corporation in charge of that too, and one has to pay through the nose just to have a sip of water there.
