The Technological Elixir takes the reader on a journey through philosophy and technology in an effort to attain that coveted medicine of the alchemists by the way of objectivity and reason. As the subtitle suggests, you will be taken through a world-view of moderation in addressing the moral maturity of mankind in creating technologies such as AI, or those that may indefinitely sustain physical life. But to sustain material life in the inferior sphere is to prolong spiritual death in the superior planes.
Ryan uses theology, science and philosophy to explore the technological advancements leading to augmented, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. Through the use of philosophical, objective analysis, while exploring the benefits of technology, Ryan addresses the rapid movement towards transhumanism.
Allegories and myths relating to immortality are addressed with a non-polarizing argument intended to bring balance back to those separate understandings, one reserved for the profane and another for those who are initiates of the great arcanum. Technology is a neutral tool and this book examines the benefits and consequences of its application through logic and reason. Let our consciousness not be swallowed by the great beast of material desires through the arrogance or ignorance of unbalanced progression.
