ep25cover600x600Ramez 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.

    Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any suggestions?

    Dennis,
    Your sermon reminded me of the wisdom and beauty of the Psalms. I especially like the Psalms that extol the wonders of creation. You did a good job of bringing some of these to our remembrance. David and the other authors seems to have many of our thoughts and concerns. The 23rd Psalm which we repeated together at the end of your sermon is especially beautiful. Thank you for your thoughts and for reminding us of the attributes of Scripture. We appreciate your work as administrator of the church. I think we will look back on these days as a time when we were all involved in the work of the church, which is a good thing. May God bless you and yours, Dennis!
    Gladys
