In this episode of the Wow! Signal Podcast. The topic is ems, starting about minute 35, after an interview with Heath Rezabek.
Robin – I wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoyed your segment. I admit to a prior unfamiliarity with Ems; they raise a fertile possibility for thinking through scenarios that are quite distinct from those suggested by traditional AI or uploaded / transferred consciousness.
Would you have particular recommendations for further reading to delve deeper into the concept?
I have more thoughts, regarding scenarios for offworld Em bastions (asteroids as resource sinks, etc), and how the concept fares in relation to John M. Smart’s Transcension Hypothesis, but for the moment I’d love to simply learn more.
Great to ‘meet’ you,
… be a charity angel.
