Jason Reza Jorjani, PhD, is a philosopher and author of Prometheus and Atlas, World State of Emergency, Lovers of Sophia, Novel Folklore: The Blind Owl of Sadegh Hedayat, and Iranian Leviathan: A Monumental History of Mithra’s Abode.
Here he discusses the convergence of genetics, robotics, information, and nanotechnologies towards a singularity, beyond which we will enter a transhuman condition. These ideas are explored with a view to incorporate evidence from parapsychology and consciousness research. The discussion includes numerous examples from both popular culture and film.
Many viewers will know that Jason Reza Jorjani has suffered from libel and persecution as a result of his, generally misunderstood, political views. In my view, he is a brilliant scholar who has now been unfairly disgraced and is forced to fight a legal battle, while continuing his research and writing, without any regular employment. Therefore I have set up this “Go Fund Me” page in order to assist this worthy individual.
