Going Forward ! Great.. you're an Atheist.. Now what are you gonna do?


If the idea that Science is the new religion, and we're all happy that we're all Atheists.. then let's stop talking about theist issues and look at what we ARE doing as Critical Thinkers to ensure our Futures.
(( the valid debates about theist encroachment on science advancement is best addressed by appropriate groups ))

As an active 'Futurist', Transhumanist, Extropian..

What are you doing to ensure your Future for yourself?

Great cartoon, Ruth!

Religions are themselves mechanisms for implanting shared stories, myths, and "memories".

And the forehead cylinder resembles the head-worn box that's a part of tefillin, worn by observant Jewish men for weekday morning prayer as a remembrance of the Exodus story. I don't think that's a coincidence!

Six minute video visualizing a transhumanist future.

Excellent quality.

I suspect that Guilio Tononi's work on consciousness can be considered in the context of the holographic principle in so far as the notion of information being essentially a series of 0's and 1's and our brain providing us with a "data projection" of a "data projection".

BTW, I vote for Juan Maldacena getting the Physics Nobel for providing the translation dictionary of two dimensional data on the surface of a volume to the three dimensional holographic projection in the volume (possibly our universe)!
