The Singularity Is Coming. Are You Ready To Live Forever? Are You Sure? (Video)

Time and again, TEDx Events we come across prove that you can be thoroughly engaged and enlightened by a smart person presenting a point of view at the front of a room. This relatively low-tech presentation of the highest-tech (and perhaps most hopeful/scary) idea is no exception.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Would you upload your personality if you could? What do you think of the possibility of living without a physical body? Dr. White addresses a reality that is not so far off as we might think – and what the ethical and philosophical implications of this future might be.

Dr. Jonathan White, originally from Northern Ireland, is a surgeon at the Royal Alexandra Hospital. Dr. White is a renowned teacher, and has won numerous awards for his innovative and creative approach, including being the first surgeon ever selected as a 3M National Teaching Fellow, an honor bestowed in 2014. At TEDx, Dr. White will point out the unforeseen consequences of the rapid technological change we are experiencing – the unexpected societal, medical, and philosophical issues that we now must consider. He will introduce us to the concept of the “singularity”, a possibility which has enormous potential but also carries immense uncertainty. As we enter the next phase of human evolution, Dr. White will pose provocative questions that will challenge our ideas of what the future holds.

Now, before you make up your mind either way, you must check out this write-up at The Activist. Everlasting life, achieved by man by whatever means, is one thing; but what do we do with it? Really think this through. What does a life sentence mean when the prospect of eternal life is on the table? And do we really want to talk about the possibility for resurrection? Mind…blown!
