When there’s nothing after death, it makes sense that a human project would be created to defy death itself.  As Luc Ferry, writes in his book, A Brief History of Thought: A Philosophical Guide To Living, “…Philosophy, unlike the great religions, promises to help us to ‘save’ ourselves, to conquer our fears, not through an Other, a God, but through our own strength and the use of our reason.” Featured on the cover of Time Magazine, Google epitomizes this humanism in action with the creation of Calico, a company that will use technology to extend human life.
