Russia's "The Challenge" becomes the first feature film shot in space.
The first-ever feature film shot in space has premiered on April 20, 2023 and Moscow is celebrating the achievement, considering it a victory over a rival Hollywood project amid rising tensions with the West.
In October 2021, Russia dispatched an actor and a film director to the International Space Station to shoot scenes for a movie titled "The Challenge." The plot of the film revolves around a surgeon who is sent to the ISS to save an injured cosmonaut. The filming took place during a 12-day stint onboard the orbiting laboratory.
In a competition to produce the first feature film shot in space, the Russian crew emerged as the winners, surpassing a Hollywood project that was announced in 2020 by Tom Cruise in collaboration with NASA and Elon Musk's SpaceX.

In recent years, the concept of synthetic telepathy has gained increasing attention from both the scientific community and the general public. The ability to communicate with others using only our thoughts may sound like something straight out of science fiction, but recent advancements in neuroscience and technology have brought us closer to making this a reality. Join us for an exclusive interview with futurist and evolutionary cyberneticist Alex M. Vikoulov, as he shares his expertise on the fascinating topic of synthetic telepathy. Speaking with news reporter Blanca Elena Reyes, Vikoulov will delve into the workings of this cutting-edge technology and discuss its potential applications for the future.

The Cybernetic Theory of Mind (2022) Kindle eBook series by futurist, evolutionary cyberneticist and philosopher of mind Alex M. Vikoulov, released last year, undoubtedly deserves a second look with these featured trailers corresponding to each book in the series.
This set of 5 books is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the fundamental aspects of reality, including consciousness, the physics of time, philosophy of mind, interpretive models of quantum mechanics, the technological singularity, transhumanism/posthumanism, the impending phase transition of humanity, simulation metaphysics, economic theory, extended Gaia theory, and cybertheosophy. These subjects are synthesized into a single, cohesive Theory of Everything (ToE) that draws upon the best of our epistemic foundation.
If you have a strong desire to become acquainted with the most sophisticated ontological framework currently available or if you are already familiar with the Syntellect Hypothesis, which is now being presented as the comprehensive Cybernetic Theory of Mind in this series, you will certainly find newly introduced and updated materials in this latest version, which differs from the previously published version. This series can be read as an independent work, just like any other book in the series:

"Indeed, we're now moving away from the U.S.-led Unipolar World Order established after the collapse of the Soviet Union towards what Russia's president Vladimir Putin calls the 'Multipolar World Order.' This is an entirely natural civilizational evolution: Just like a magnet would always have two poles, and a human brain has two hemispheres -- a complex adaptive system like an emergent Global Brain would tend to resemble what AI researchers christened GANs -- Generative Adversarial Networks. From the bigger picture perspective, we're witnessing the emergence of the Global Mind (cf. The Syntellect Hypothesis). This 'Geomind' would eventually develop two somewhat opposing each other thinking hemispheres: West and East (as a simplified approximation) -- the planetary GAN optimized for a balanced civilizational progress." --Alex M. Vikoulov, Cybernetic Theory (2024)
This designer theme, #GEOMIND, is currently offered in a variety of 42 high-quality products from fancy home decor and wall art to stylish clothing, gadgetry and accessories for you to make a bold statement, to stand out from the crowd or to simply keep you excited throughout the day.
Cybernetic Theory: The Code of Reality & Our Future as Cybergods | Talk by Futurist Alex M. Vikoulov

“Reality can exist as a code which both transcends and yet inhabits the world it creates, which is essentially physical yet can process information independent of the type of carrier and be metaphysical in that sense... A system which incorporates and embodies itself by self-reference.” --Antonin Tuynman
As you may know, I'm a Russian-American futurist, evolutionary cyberneticist and philosopher of mind. Here, I present my published works in a talk titled CYBERNETIC THEORY: THE CODE OF REALITY & OUR FUTURE AS CYBERGODS at the Rotary Club, The Grand Autograph Hotel, Novosibirsk, Russia, on July 19, 2022.

Released on Earth Day by Black Moon Publishing, GaeaGenesis: Conception and Birth of the Living Earth by philosopher Oberon Zell, is now available in paperback on Amazon.
Does our planet have a mind and agency of its own? This is one of the main questions philosopher and mystic Oberon Zell illuminates in his latest masterpiece GaeaGenesis: Conception and Birth of the Living Earth. Just as we don't see a bacterium with a naked eye, we don't quite seem to have an innate ability to perceive the Gaian mind with a "naked" brain. As Dr. Ralph Metzner, Professor Emeritus of California Institute of Integral Studies and Founder-President of The Green Earth Foundation, writes: “Oberon Zell was the first person to conceive and publish the biological and metaphysical foundations of what has become known as the ‘Gaia Theory’ — the unified body and emergent soul of the living Earth... For over 50 years Oberon has been writing and lecturing on Gaian consciousness, and it is high time that he put it all together into a book!” And, indeed, he did.

Now that the final book in The Cybernetic Theory of Mind series is released, the entire Kindle eBook series is available on Amazon all in one place!
This is a 5-book set aimed to explain from the best of our epistemic foundation the ultimate nature of reality, consciousness, physics of time, computational physics, philosophy of mind, interpretive models of quantum mechanics, technological singularity, transhumanism/posthumanism, impending phase transition of humanity, simulation metaphysics, economic theory, extended Gaia theory, cybertheosophy, all of which is combined into one elegant Theory of Everything (ToE).
If you're eager to familiarize with probably the most advanced ontological framework to date or if you're already familiar with the Syntellect Hypothesis which, with this series, is now presented to you as the full-fledged Cybernetic Theory of Mind, then this series will surely present to you some newly-introduced and updated material if compared with the originally published version and can be read as a stand-alone work just like any book of the series:
