Transcendence—
highly sophisticated, mind twisting, intelligently written, no-fault-found scriptexamines the possibility of achieving utopia via fusion of human and artificial intelligence. A refreshing story that examines a true soul mate love affair between two scientists and the outcome of that profound relationship.
