Kurzweil: A Future of Humans Merged With Machines (video)

116

Previous articles on this site have described how the concept of transhumanism was subtly promoted in music videos, movies and video games. In the recent months, the transhumanist agenda took a much more direct approach as Ray Kurzweil became the voice of the movement he calls “Singularity” – the merging of humans with machine. While pop stars dance around as robots to wow the younger crowds, Kurzweil addresses the adult and mature population.

Here’s Ray Kurzweil during in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

I used to love a Canadian band called Our Lady Peace. Their fourth album was released in the year 2000. It was called Spiritual Machines and was a conceptual interpretation of Ray Kurzweil's 1999 book The Age of Spiritual Machines. It featured spoken tracks by Ray Kurzweil, and The Kurzweil K250 keyboard, which he invented, was also used throughout the album.

Interestingly, I thought nothing of it at the time other than the band was playing on the whole Y2K excitement or trying to be super-artistic by going in a "futuristic" direction. I've been following The Vigilent Citizen for several months and loving what I'm learning (to the degree that one can "love" the sad truth of who's running our world), but it wasn't until I read this article that I remembered this entire Our Lady Peace album about machines replacing humanity. Makes me want to check out what the band is into these days, and see what agenda they are after.
