That's a good point, but Kurzweil probably won't like it. I believe the
Christian mystic Teilhard de Chardin wrote about his Omega Man, which is his
version of a human in cosmic consciousness or God-consciousness. But can Rick
Archer find someone who can levitate to show us that a human being has broken
through the barrier of mediocrity? :)

Heh! What have yogis been doing for centuries? These idiots who fancy
themselves scientists are going about brain improvement the wrong way. I have
this vision of a "Twilight Zone" episode that takes place in the future where
Ray Kurzweil has managed to merge himself with a machine and is begging people
to turn the machine off because he finally is tired of living. Of course
everyone is ignoring him.

This is the question that propels adherents of the transhumanist movement.

itself to unite with the absolute. So, why is AI, nanotechnology and other
scientific gadgets necessary to improve the human brain? What do you think?
