Virtual immortality revisited

Interesting news article looking at Matrine Rothlatt’s perspective on digital immortality. See Virtual immortality —, the Internet home base for Terasem Movement Transreligion Inc., describes Rothblatt’s religion as one that believes “God emerges as technology becomes increasingly omnipresent, omniscient, omnificient and omnipotent,” and that “technology will soon enable joyful immortality.”

  1. I’m really interested in this kind of thing. It does seem to me that there are a lot of people who explore what used to be religious themes, now, through the medium of scientific concepts. It seems doubly interesting as the same sort of philosophical problems tend to reappear, just from a different starting point. To see what I mean you could do worse than to see what sci-fi writer Stephen Baxter does in Exultant and Transcendent.
