Subject: [Provocateurs] TOMORROW, FRI, 7 PM, PRICE CHOPPER: UPLOAD YOURSELF INTO A COMPUTER

Tomorrow night, June 14, 7 p.m. Price Chopper:

How different will life be 20 years from now?  What does the future hold for our kids and grandkids?  
THIS WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING: IDEAS THAT WILL SHAPE THE FUTURE
  • HUMAN IMMORTALITY, BRAIN-MACHINE INTERFACE & MEMORY UPLOAD, DNA ENGINEERING, & THAT'S JUST THE START ...
    PRESENTED BY:  IGORE DYBAL
    Prof. Dybal will talk, and then give us all a chance to talk, about what the future holds for us humans.  LOTS OF CONTENT HERE:  The talk will be based on Edge.org book of 125 essays of today's leading thinkers and scientists  This Will Change Everything: Ideas That Will Shape The Future.
    Main paradigms and shifts in scientific, cultural and ethical trends will be probed with VIDEO CLIPS, LECTURE, AND AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION.  New scientific discoveries will be examined, and the audience will help determine which ones to spend most of our time on.  Plenty of opportunity for discussion.
    What will change us?
    • DNA engineering
    • Brain-Machine interface and memory upload/manipulation
    • Quantum Computing (hope John Millam will be there for this one)
    • Environmental Issues
    • Artificial Intelligence
    • Alien Life
    • Human Immortality
    • Will we be better off with true lie detection
    • Resizing ourselves
    • What will adopting Rationality and Sustainability lead to?
    • Can we all speak one language and are we going to lose writing?
    • What would existence of other dimensions mean to our species?
    • How would Epistemology change the world?  
    • The only constant:  Why humans always rebel.
     
     
    Don't be afraid of change. It's coming ...
    ______________________________________
    Come early to grab something to eat and get to know people.
    Afterward:  More conversation 60 seconds away at the Blue Moose.
    __________________________________________
    See you Friday!
