I-RISE In Service of the Resurrection Force for Humanity

Today, Easter Sunday, marks the celebration of the resurrection of Christ from the dead. This is momentous event for the billions of Christians around the world. The Christian world celebrates the victory of Christ over the force of death in the universe. Without this singular event, the Christian faith would have no meaning. This event is not just a momentary event performed by an extraordinary Divine Being. It is also an event that has profound implications for the evolution of human civilizations in the entire planet.

The Cosmic Christ and Human Solidarity

For a young person starting to be conscious of the larger world around him today, the global picture of Christianity today is both puzzling and confusing. And the same can be said of adults. This confusion and the resulting depression are leading to an increase in suicide rates, drug abuse, and mindless hyper consumerism, among others. On the one hand, we have the so-called new atheists who have launched an all-out attack on Christianity. This is exemplified in such works as Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion, Christopher Hitchens, god is not great, and Sam Harris, The End of Faith.

Artificial Intelligence: Euphoria or Extinction

The 21st Century is the age of science and technology. It will also be the age when humanity confronts for the first time a challenge that may overwhelm and destroy the human species itself. And the irony of it all is that human beings themselves are feverishly creating this challenge thinking that it will ultimately be for the benefit of humanity itself. One need only cite the promises of super health, super strength, super intelligence, and immortality for the humans that will be brought by AI in conjunction with other technologies. But there is a growing concern that this technological creation could lead to the extinction of the human species itself. This is the perilous challenge of artificial intelligence (AI).

The I-RISE Logo

Our logo has many layers of meaning in it. The central layer is the symbol of the Lemniscate at the middle of the logo. The lemniscate symbolizes that we can only truly transform the world if we have the power of change ourselves. (Click here for more details on the lemniscate.) As has been said before, the heart of the revolution is the revolution of the heart.
