TransAlchemy Interviews TechnoCalyps creator, Frank Theys. (Podcast episode 3)



FRANK THEYS (°1963, Brussels) studied Philosophy and Fine Arts in Brussels. He works as a video, film and theater maker. He lives and works in Brussels and Amsterdam. http://www.frank-theys.net




Frank is the Director/ writer of the film "TechnoCalyps"


TechnoCalyps is a 3 part documentary about ‘transhumanism’, an ideology assuming that we approach an era where humans, as we know them, are no longer the driving force of civilization. All technological developments seem to converge to one main goal: to overcome humanity, to try and create something transhuman.

Deel 1: Transhumanism

Part 1 gives an overview of recent technological developments (biogenetics, artificial intelligence, robotics, implants, nanotechnology,…) and prognoses made by leading scientists about the impact of these developments in the near future.
Deel 2: Preparing for the Singularity
In this part advocates and opponents of a transhuman future are weighed against each other; prognoses are done when we can expect the transhuman revolution and how people are preparing for it already now.

Deel 3: The Digital Messiah
This part covers the metaphysical consequences of the new technological revolution. On the one hand scientist start to use metaphysical concepts to describe the impact of their research, on the other hand, a surprisingly large number of scientific projects is inspired by religious aspirations and more and more theologians from any religious or spiritual belief are getting interested in these aspirations of new technology, making the discussion inextricable complex.
