JASON SILVA: Transcension is a theory, its a hypothesis that attempts to account for Fermi's Paradox. Now Fermi's Paradox is a question that asks that if the universe is so infinitely large... and it would have had so much time to develop intelligent life... then how come we don't see any evidence of those technologically advanced civilisations anywhere. Eventually our technology reaches a point where simultaneously with this expansion we're pioneering more and more stem compression, which is the compression of space, time, energy and matter. We have denser and denser spaces where more and more computation and complexity is occurring...
We won't need bodies, we'll just be consciousness living in virtual reality. We're practising already, look at all the movies about this stuff
Sci-Fi comedy Men in Black offers its interpretation of  'Transcension' below
