IDEAS THAT WILL CHANGE EVERYTHING

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:  IGGY DYBAL

RSVP above right.  COME EARLY (6:30, 6:45) TO GRAB SOMETHING TO EAT AND TO GET TO KNOW PEOPLE.

Prof. Dybal will lead an interactive conversation about what the future holds for us humans. LOTS OF CONTENT HERE:  The talk will be loosely based on Edge.org 2009 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 participation of the audience. New scientific discoveries will be profiled, and the audience will help define which topics to focus 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:
  • The only constant:  Why humans always rebel.

 

 

Don't be afraid of change. It's coming ...
