REASON TV interview:
"Taking a page from Timothy Leary, the folks behind the Whole Earth Catalog, Ray Kurzweil, and other visionaries, Silva's work looks at the ways in technological progress is allowing humans to direct their own evolution. And the ways in which prohibitionists of all stripes push back on new ways of being human."
"Etymologically speaking, after all, computers are literally psychedelic; that is, they manifest the mind."
"People have always sort of been scared of new technologies," says Silva. "But in the end we assimilate them and they improve the quality of our lives."
Interview by Reason's Zach Weissmueller. Shot and edited by Sharif Matar. About 11 minutes long."
