    whether you take ray seriously or not, its quite interesting to think about the future of our hybrid evolution of being human and robot, with the supposed succession of robots, ie matrix/terminator.

    alot of us will say "yea its gonna happen someday, we'll evolve into robotic beings", but to watch ray and his lifestyle of serious belief and support is pretty eerie and weird.

    i recommend this video to those that are in support of this idea, the singularity, and our "inevitable" transcendence to immortality and endless possibilities.

    We already grow rat brains from single brain cells and connect the man made organ to a circuit board to control a robotic vehicle. (last weeks "through the wormhole" episde)

    This guy is on tonight's "Real Time with Bill Maher", which will be re-run ad nauseum the rest of the week. (HBO) Piquing my interest so far.
