The Labyrinth, Episode 25 – Ramez Naam
Ramez Naam is the author of “More than Human,” the 2010 H.G. Wells award-winning book that speculates a future where technology helps humanity transcend beyond the body. He’s written his first novel, “Nexus,” which releases today. Set in 2040, Nexus explores transhumanism and posthumanism as humanity develops a drug that can make minds connect with each other directly. He sat down with me to talk about his life as a transhumanist and, how he is often referred to as a proponent of the singularity, a label he has reservations about. We talk about the possibilities of moving the brain and the mind closer to others, essentially plugging in, as well as other topics like dreaming, writing and shamanism.
