Host: Anne Nicholson
Guests: Nicanor Perlas & Andrew Linnell

The time of complacency about the future is over. Egoism whispers: let someone else sacrifice to fix the future. Transhumanism expects some will escape this obligation by uploading their soul into the “cloud” where they will co-exist with our creation, Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI). Must we become co-creators or can we escape responsibility? Nicanor Perlas makes an urgent plea: we must take immediate steps to ensure technology aligns with goals of human evolution.
