The Fountain of Youth has been long sought after by explorers throughout history. The legend has its origin in Sumerian and Atlantean mythology leading to crusades by explorers to discover longevity. Now, scientists are working feverishly to extend life and end death through synthetic biology, brain chip interfaces, brain cloud interfaces, artificial intelligence, designer babies/animals, synthetic telepathy, and more. Would you swim in the rivers of eternal life if it existed? Tonight on Ground Zero, Kristan Harris talks with Transhumanist, Zoltan Istvan and Investigative Journalist, James Corbett about SWIMMING IN THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.
With his popular 2016 US Presidential run as a science candidate, bestselling book The Transhumanist Wager, and speeches at institutions like the World Bank and World Economic Forum, Zoltan Istvan has spearheaded the effort to transform transhumanism into a thriving worldwide phenomenon. He is often cited as the global leader of the radical science movement. A humanitarian activist and former journalist for National Geographic, Zoltan has been described as a modern-day Ayn Rand.
An award-winning investigative journalist, James Corbett has lectured on geopolitics at the University of Groningen’s Studium Generale, and delivered presentations on open source journalism at The French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation’s fOSSa conference, at TedXGroningen and at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto.
