Description: Is reality obsolete? From low-tech function like body piercing and artificially-stocked fishing pools, to the latest in bionics and VR gaming, this cyber-age intellectual survey--call it a *.DOCumentary--downloads a Future Shockful of data and defines the parameters of advanced technologies that delete nature and reprogram mankind. Cyronics defy death; the Internet exists outside time and space; smart drugs and surgery upgrade the mind and body. But are we headed toward human optimization, or system crash? Timothy Leary, R. U. Sirius, Lisa Palac, John Barlow and others offer sound bytes against a mesmerizing screen display of cutting edge computer-graphics, location footage and archival clips.
