Another of Jason Silva’s “Shots of Awe” trippy video monologues, in this case discussing mortality and his disgust at the idea that we all must die, and the Utopian promises of transhumanism.
What do you think of his comments? Would immortality be a great thing, or would we lose something more than our life? What if spiritual traditions are right, and we have a soul that goes to a ‘better place’ after death – does physical ‘immortality’ in that case trap us in a lower world?
Would love to hear your thoughts!
