Transhumanism as religion, Immortality in the multiverse, The Artilect Messiahs, The end of death and suffering, Humans into Gods, The rise of the unreal, Raising the dead, Apocalypse and Judgement Day, The validation of religion... and what we must do about it.

The organisers set a £5 entrance fee.

Gather from 7.30pm onwards - the talk starts at 8pm.

      Thanks. Unfortunately I have not done that talk before and the pacing was a bit off, meaning I had to cut out the details of the actual praxis. However, I will be giving the talk again, in a slicker format in the near future.

    Ah yes, I forget that it was a new venue. Still, you could do an alternate with slides in telexlr8, video captured (thanks for the confirmation Giulio!) and uploaded to youtube... could be a great tool to promote ZS & sell copies of The Praxis! ;-)

    The Cartoonist is a new venue and I think I will be the first speaker there. I have no idea what it will be like from an environmental POV. However, I could put together something for YouTube that would probably be more suitable than just a talking head.

    Yes video capture is built in

    Sounds good to me :-) Assuming that sounds good to Dirk too and video capture is an option, we could cross-post the resultant video to the youtube channel being set up for ZS.

    Let's indeed ask Dirk to do a one-off online version, we can do it at http://telexlr8.net/ (soon to be renamed) anytime

    Hey Giulio -

    That's a great idea in principle, but there are obstacles... Atlantis don't habitually stream anything (not really the style of their talks), and we tried to film in their temporary venue a few weeks back and it was too dark.

    Maybe the solution would be for Dirk to do a one-off version just for the internet, later??

    If the Atlantis bookshop has a good Internet connection, perhaps you guys could stream this talk? Otherwise, please record it and post it to YouTube.

    Please put aside both books for me! Il. Pay for them when I see you. I am doing a rune thing on Tuesday the 6th at Atlantis.

      Are you still staying at Phil's place? If so I can probably drop off the books there on my way into London.
