Sometimes a mind can be so brilliant that it can blinding, Technophile and Futurist Ray Kurzweil is accurately described by one person as a "profit" - he sees a Utopian not-too-distant future in which the merging of man and machine will result in immortality,super-intelligence and eventually, in "transcendent" beings. For most, his predictions will be beyond them or on the surface, well, insane. But given the incredible pace of advancements in genetics, nanotechnology and robotics/artificial intelligence, he cannot be ignored. His worldview presents the audience with one profound truth - the "singularity" - there will come a time in which human technology will move beyond human capabilities. The question heavily debated in this documentary is, what then? Do we merge with said technology, as Kurzweil suggests, or are we eradicated as useless pests "Terminator"-style as others have warned? As Ray Kurzweil comes to grips with his own immortality in this film, so too must we come to realize that we and perhaps our species, too, will die. But are death and extinction a natural, unavoidable part of life or simply another challenge to be overcome?
