Transhumanists, like other Silicon Valley-flavored thinkers, get a bad rap today. But I always love talking with intellectually open futurists, especially when they have productive angles on the religious urge and the quest for meaning. Agah Bahari is a musician, podcaster, and all around sweet smart dude, and I enjoyed joining his NEOHUMAN podcast enormously. Agah is also only the latest of the long line of excellent Persians and Persian-Americans I have been blessed to hang out with. He also has an awesome beard!
