I'm going into my senior year of high school and am thinking about colleges. At the moment, I really want to study something to do with transhumanism/the singularity and these areas in general. Do you guys have any suggestions about schools I should look at?
My stats are: ~3.7 GPA, on the SAT 720 Writing, 610 Math, 800 Critical Reading. Currently I'm most interested in Vassar and Brown. Oh, and for SAT Subject Tests I got 710 in Literature and 770 in Spanish.
Also, in my school much of our senior year is taken up by a senior project which can basically be anything we want it to be, and I want to do it on transhumanism/future technologies/the singularity as well. The only requirement is that there be a project of some kind and a 15-20 page paper accompanying it (I think the project could just be a longer research paper though). I'd say my primary goal is to start learning what I need to learn in order to help bring about the singularity/transhumanist goals. Do you guys have any thoughts or suggestions about that?
Study the Christian conscience instead. Isn't it interesting every baby born into the world has a Christian conscience? Not unusual if you consider Jesus is our Creator John 1:1. Why wouldn't he give us his conscience? In a time when we have the capability of creating human like robots with a lot of brain power they like us will need an ethical value system. Otherwise, this era will become the end of civilization not a new horizon. As for transhuman. This is an unethical and godless ideology. It will prove secular, atheistic humanists should not be teaching our kids anything.
I would suggest any college that has courses that relate to your Transhumanist interests, such as im intending to transfer to UCLA because i am a Biotech major, and i want to specialize in Synthetic Biology and UCLA has a lot of great biology courses including a theoretical course in BioCybernetics.
