There are many types of people in my life. Actors, Writers, Musicians, Attorneys, Accountants, Futurists. I met Gray during Michael Roderick’s ConnectorCon. A passionate discourse was had about quantum physics over paninis and salads. Little did we know that Gray was the keynote speaker of the event. A friendship struck up and wonderful conversations continued on our future. So when shared his news about being a co-executive producer for his documentary: The Future of Work and Death, I wanted to learn more so I can share with you. I asked him to tell me more and he did:
What is the meaning of life? Why are we hear? What is the purpose of life? These fundamental questions have yet to be answered. Until now, it seems humanity has been to busy surviving to answer these questions. That is about to change. Advancements in AI and robotics may allow us to automate everything. How will we live in a future without jobs? Can humanity cope with such a massive paradigm shift?
Will near future medical advancements free us from the chains of natural death? Several recent scientific studies have produced startling, some might say, magical results. Scientists have been able to reverse age in mice. Sounds like science fiction but age reversal has arrived. Human trials may start as soon as next year. So what will human life be like in a world free of work and death?
These are the questions that we hope to answer in THE FUTURE OF WORK AND DEATH.
