Ray Kurzweil Casually Drops a Bomb: 'One Day We Will Have Non-Biological Bodies'

Ray Kurzweil, futurist and head of AI for Google, is one of the most brilliant minds alive today. According to him, humans and machines will ultimately merge, with technology outliving biological organs and body parts. Thursday on radio, Glenn and his co-hosts listened to Kurzweil's matter-of-fact prediction.

"The machine part will be so powerful that it will completely be able to model and understand the biological part. So even if that biological part went away, it wouldn't make any difference," Kurzweil said. "We'll also have non-biological bodies."

GLENN: Can you play a little bit of Ray Kurzweil? We have to get to this later, perhaps tomorrow. Listen to how casually Ray Kurzweil talks about what's coming.

VOICE: Well, we're going to become increasingly non-biological to the point where the non-biological part predominates and the biological part is not that important anymore.

PAT: Sure.

VOICE: In fact, the non-biological part, the machine part, will be so powerful that it will completely be able to model and understand the biological part. So even if that biological part went away, it wouldn't make any difference.

GLENN: Now, listen to this.

PAT: Right.

VOICE: Because the non-biological part already understood it completely.

VOICE: Will we also have non-biological bodies?

GLENN: Sure.

VOICE: We can create bodies with nanotechnology. We can create virtual bodies and virtual reality.

GLENN: Right. Right.

(laughter)

PAT: He's so matter of fact.

We'll just all be machines.

GLENN: I know. And this is the head of AI at Google.

PAT: No more feelings for anybody in humankind.

GLENN: One of the greatest minds alive today.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And one of the guys that Stephen Hawking is like, warning. You know, just -- matter of factly said, we're not going to have biological bodies anymore. Wait. Wait. Ray, can you go back to that part?

PAT: Wait. What?
