With the goals of transhumanists and futurists so close to full realization, the world's leading scientists are beginning to voice their concern that general humanity might not comprehend the full weight of their discoveries. Scientists like Stephen Hawking have formed a group of "scientific superheroes" who supposedly aim to ensure that humanity does not choose the lethal side of the double-edged sword of technology. Let's see what they are planning to do to save humanity from itself at the dawn of The Singularity.

Our current position as we head toward The Singularity is being called The Hybrid Age by futurists, as discussed in the candid video below. It is an increasingly synthetic age of bio-computing, enhanced artificial intelligence and the merging of man and machine through augmented reality. Also stated below is the increasing indication that humanity is not the only biology susceptible to The Singularity; nature, too -- the climate, for example -- will be increasingly manageable and augmented.

Here we go again! Rise of the Machines! Crazy scientific experiments to try and prove that nature is far less effective than machine or man-made products. We've been hearing this whole "Trans-humanism" or H+ talk/movement for some time but these guys are pressing on for an "i Robot/Astroboy" of our day and age. But what will the ramifications of creating such a thing be? We've seen in so many science fiction movies how these experiments go terribly wrong and somehow, the creators are able to control the creation at the end. However, this isn't make believe anymore and we don't know how this will turn out in the end. True, some "additions" or "modifications" to some humans for medical purposes might prove quite useful. Yet, as we well know, this kind of science will come with a price and let's be realistic, the medically-needy will most likely not get to see this advancement for their own uses.
