Singularity/Transhuman related media

The post is a list of singularity-related material, even if it is quite tenuously connected.

Some of these contributions were made along with comments by PJ Manney after some discussion on AGIRI‘s singularity mailing list.

Songs

DJ Quicksilver – “Planet Love” (trance tune with an invitation to all of humanity to voyage to planet love – the introdus perhaps?).
David Bowie – “Saviour Machine” (a machine built to solve everyone’s problems gets bored)
Paul Kantner/Jefferson Airplane – “Crowns of Creation”
Yes – “Machine Messiah”
Papa Roach – “Singular Indestructible Droid”
U2 – “Original of the Species” (okay, I know it’s supposed to be about The Edge’s daughter or something, but YOU tell me what it’s about…)
David Bowie – “Ashes to Ashes”
Marilyn Manson – “Posthuman”
Bunnyhug – “Posthuman Man”
Vesania – “Path II – the Posthuman Kind” (Polish death metal…!)

TV Shows

Look around you (season 2) – Computers – Bournemouth the super computer is placed in a iron cage and has to escape. It tries several tricks to get the presenters to let it out – and eventually replaces itself with a paper mache version and escapes through undescribed means to have a holiday in Bournemouth.

More to come as a come across them.
