Becoming transhuman by Mark Pesce (2001) is the stunning story of human possibilities - where we were, where we are, and where we are going. Spanning the entire range of history, from the birth of the universe to the death of the Sun, Becoming Transhuman asks the tough questions, and offers a few answers. With its stunning coordination of sight and sound, Becoming Transhuman will make you think. And maybe, even hope. The film is divided into three chapters. Part One, Affirming, looks at what happens when humans reach apotheosis through evolution - when they become transhuman. Part Two, Denying, reflects that for every action there's an equal reaction. Every gift is also a curse. When humans become transhuman, when they gain god-like powers, will they simply reduce the world to ash? Part Three, Resolving, accepts the reality of both the utopian and dystopian points of view explored in parts one and two, and tries to chart a path to the future - one which preserves our essential humanity in the face of profound changes to human being.
