WE’RE ALL going to live forever. Transhumanists just want to do it without dying. Today we discuss the drive for immortality through technology, which to us–living forever with unregenerate hearts–sounds like a recipe for Hell on Earth.
We also discuss several stories related to Russia: Putin’s goals in the Middle East, a possible partnership with Israel to develop the Leviathan natural gas field, the ongoing investigation into the crash of Metrojet flight 9268 in the Sinai, Russian programmers plant viruses on sensitive Pentagon computer networks, and the founder of Russia Today (RT) found dead in Washington, D.C.
Also: SETI searches for radio noise from the “alien megastructure”, secret military activity in the ocean near L.A., and all 20 of the “Worst Small Cities in America” are in California.
