Last Show Recap

Transhumanism Roundtable

In the first half of the program, host Jimmy Church (email) welcomes researcher, Jason Martell, who will discuss how ancient cultural beliefs are tied in with the procession of the equinox and why this concept of a vast cycle-connected and gradual procession of the equinox is viewed by modern humans as strange. In the latter half, conceptual artist and researcher Mark McCandlish will share his story of working as an illustrator of classified projects for the military-industrial complex. He will discuss his story of intrigue, secrets, and technology, along with detailed information on the history, physics and technological mechanisms regarding faster-than-light travel, antigravity, and zero-point energy.

From 6-10pm PT, Art Bell: Somewhere in Time journeys back to January 28, 1999, when Art was joined by Linda Moulton Howe who shared an interview she did with a retired sergeant about a UFO triangle report from 1989. Art also opened a special anti-Christ line after reports from Jerry Falwell who said the anti-Christ was on Earth and that Christ's return was less than ten years away.

Transhumanism Roundtable

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - July 19, 2007
Host: George Noory
Guests: James Gardner, Charlie Kam, Barbara Marx Hubbard, Philippe Van Nedervelde, Ray Kurzweil, Alison Gianotto

Five guests participated in a roundtable discussion about transhumanism, a movement that looks ahead to augmentation of human capabilities. Author James Gardner, who participated in the entire conversation, argued that we are in the midst of evolution, and the current state of humanity is not a final product. Change is occurring at such an exponential rate, he said, that it is changing the nature of change itself.

Technological change is occurring faster than biological change and humans are running outdated software in their bodies, commented futurist Ray Kurzweil (who appeared during hours 2 & 3). Developments in genetics, nanotechnology and AI are coming at such a rapid rate that within forty years, humans won't be able to keep up unless they merge with the technology, he opined. A diagram of a "trans-post-human" is posted here.

Educator Barbara Marx Hubbard, who participated during the third hour, noted that we're experiencing the evolution of evolution itself, and that for the first time, humans are choosing to consciously evolve. Nanotech expert Philippe Van Nedervelde (part of the 4th hour) warned of "asymmetric destructive capabilities" that allow small groups to kill millions. To counteract this possibility, he suggested airborne nanotech surveillance systems that could constantly monitor environments using "smart dust."

All of the guests will be presenting at TransVision 2007, taking place July 23-25th in Chicago. Conference chairman Charlie Kam (appearing in the second hour) said efforts were made this year to book such guests as William Shatner and Ed Begley Jr. to widen the appeal of the gathering.

Pet Abuse Cases

First hour guest, Alison Gianotto, the founder of Pet-Abuse.Com, spoke about animal cruelty cases. Abuse occurs for a variety of reasons including retaliation, control, and in cases of pit bull fighting, enhancing one's own aggression, she detailed.
