      Building Gods addresses whether humanity should construct godlike immensely brilliant machines in this century. It examines how science is moving closer to a computer or “other” human engineered system.  A system that would have the have the ability to house consciousness. Enter the matrix without Keanu Reeves of course.

      The likelihood of a system similar to the matrix stimulates fascination and hope in many. At the same point though it creates fear and paranoia in others. The documentary’s subject isn’t necessarily that of singularity, but by the end of the film you will be thinking in that direction. This 80-minute film features interviews with a brain builder, a cyborg, a theologian and a philosopher. They debate the possibility of extinction, species wars and immorality.

      Scholar Hugo de Garis believes this could cause what he refers to as an Artilect War. He expresses his concern over a world divided with cybernetically augmented humans, brilliant Artilects species and homo-sapiens will eventually define the nature of all global politics.

      So, what does all of this mean for humans as a society? Ken Gumbs breaks it down for the viewers with Building Gods. Will intelligent machine-like Gods come to rule the world one day?
