Los Angeles 

The Avant garde filmmaker’s filmmaker, Kenneth Anger made the Thelemic masterpiece Lucifer Rising in England and Egypt over an extended period from the mid-’60s – ’70s. The Theatre and our pals at cinespia reunite to bring it back to the big screen tonight, with a special appearance by Los Angeles’ favorite Occult octogenarian himself. Lucky all of us.

The science of ‘Transcendence’ isn’t just fiction—it’s terrifyingly real

Transcendence is based directly on the principle of singularity, the moment when technology surpasses humanity. In fact, Dr. Caster, the film’s protagonist, even states as much in the trailer, asking an audience to, “Imagine a machine with the full range of human emotion. It’s analytical power will be greater than the collective intelligence of every person in the history of the world. Some scientists refer to this as the singularity. I call it Transcendence.”
Over the years, the biggest proponent of the singularity has been noted author, scientist, and futurist Ray Kurzweil, who freely acknowledges that, “Science fiction is the great opportunity to speculate on what could happen.” Although a notorious eccentric, Kurzweil’s thinking has led to numerous technological innovations over the last few decades. Recently, he partnered with Google (yes, Google) in their efforts towards “using techniques of deep learning to produce an artificial brain.”

The Sword of Damocles - Video

Earlier this week, I covered “The Sword of Damocles”, the first pioneering example of virtual and augmented reality technology from 1968. Unfortunately I was unable to locate a visual demo of it at the time, but thanks to Thomas Richter, he sent me a link to a short video demonstrating it in action:
