  • This is a trailer for short movie Cathexis (20 min) Cathexis is a collaboration with Scottish electronic musician Christ and a Swedish cognitive neuro-scientist at Stockholm’s university.
    The concept of the film is how Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) transcends with human emotions.
    In the video several examples of this is manifested by an esoteric group called AUJIK.
    The video took one year to accomplish and was funded by the Swedish art grants committee and Helge Ax:son Johnsons foundation.
