A Transhumanist University?

Singularity University

“Singularity University is a non-profit learning institution in Silicon Valley whose stated aim is to “assemble, educate and inspire a cadre of leaders who strive to understand and facilitate the development of exponentially advancing technologies and apply, focus and guide these tools to address humanity’s grand challenges.”

And hey whadda ya know, founded and run by the grand wizard of Transhumanism himself, Ray Kurzweil:

Singularity University is overseen by a Board of Trustees.[8]

Ray Kurzweil, Co-Founder, Chancellor & Trustee.

Oh…And if you thought you, the common man could gain great insights into the future technological development of humanity..think again.

“The inaugural 2009 class was limited to forty fellows chosen from over 1,200 applicants. Eighty graduate and postgraduate students were accepted for the graduate course beginning summer 2010 from a pool of 1,600 applicants.”
