The 'Transcendent' Singularity is Near


Ray Kurzweil has become a pop culture phenomenon. The Singularity thesis has gone mainstream, and for those who still have any doubts, look no farther than the recent TIME Magazine cover story, "2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal".

Barry Ptolemy's film, Transcendent Man, is the absolute best cinematic exploration of Ray Kurzweil and his paradigm shifting ideas. If you didn't have the patience to read "Singularity Is Near" in its entirety, then not to worry because Barry's film will blow your mind in 80 minutes.

I recently had the chance to sit down with Barry for a philosophical mind meld about some of the ideas in the film:
