This isn’t a complete review of Nick Bostrom’s Superintelligence (2014), but a summary of the thoughts that came to my mind while and after reading the book.
In an interesting article titled “Transhumanism has never been modern” Richard Jones argues that “[Transhumanists] have deep roots, perhaps surprising roots… in the views of the early 20th century British scientific left-wing, and in the early Russian ideologues of space exploration.”
In “Cosmology is not Geography” (please read it first) I argue that we need a new form of religion, based on awesome cosmic visions and enlightened spirituality (cosmology), without “provincial” mythologies and rituals (geography) and petty lifestyle prescriptions (zoning norms).
I am updating this site to a new layout. The update will take a week.
DONE (more or less).
