Transhumanist’s Prayer

Transhumanists are a fascinating bunch, though I can’t help but see most of their views as simply a projection of religious longing onto science. As Ken MacLeod wrote, the Singularity seems to be “the rapture for nerds”.

Apropos, a prayer:

Our Posthumanity in Singularity,
hallowed be our science,
our omega come,
our will be done,
on earth as in noosphere.
Give us today our uploads.
Cast off our skins
as we see accelerating change.
Save us from existential risks
and deliver us from senescence.
[For the Singularity, the power, and the glory are ours
now and for ever.] Amen.
