Ex Machina

Ex Machina is a thoughtful and sensitive look into the world of synthetic humans and artificial intelligence (AI).

I noticed on Twitter recently that Artificial Sex Dolls are paving the way for this technology from an aesthetic/kinetic point of view and no doubt a superior chat bot AI is being developed to accompany this.

I have no doubt that the integration of humans with machines will become increasingly visible in my life time but I self identify as a primate so I'm happy to be a monkey wearing cotton underpants as Terence McKenna once memorably described us.

Most transhuman fetishists are frightened of dying in my experience. This is a spiritual problem with many answers to hand.
