Robert Sarmast gave up a promising career in architecture in order to pursue his lifelong passion for ancient history, world mythology, and the search for lost civilizations. He has read widely and traveled extensively for over a decade in search of facts, sources, and knowledge on a variety of ancient mysteries. After years of research, Sarmast narrowed his focus to solving one of the world's greatest riddles: the perennial mystery of Atlantis.
Robert has worked with specialists at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as well as other leading geophysicists and oceanographers in an effort to obtain the most accurate existing data about the eastern Mediterranean seafloor. He has made unprecedented series of findings while yet remaining an independent researcher and writer. Still a young man, Robert has embarked on a research program that may lead us to an entirely new picture of the origins of culture.

Historian of the future, Charles Ostman discussed nanotechnology, AI and other breakthrough concepts. Among the latest innovations he mentioned are "nano barcodes," in which a product can be sprinkled with tracking devices on a molecular scale. Video games, he said, are moving towards a completely immersive environment and will eventually have a "neurological interface." Ostman declared that we are nearing an "evolutionary event horizon" in which the complexity of these converging technologies may be exceeding human capacity. And yet he hopes that such advances can assist in solving our most vexing issue, the energy problem. Rather than coming from one alternative such as hydrogen, he suggested that a mixture of options that can be localized will be the ultimate solution. The phrase A.I. (artificial intelligence) is somewhat of a misnomer, Ostman said, and A.L. (artificial life) might actually be a more accurate term. "We're going to see the pathway to sentience," with machine ...
