Giulio Prisco

A transhumanist since joining the Extropians mailing list in the late 90s. He proposed a religious interpretation of transhumanism and a transhumanist interpretation of religion.

He is a member of the Christian and Mormon Transhumanist Associations.

I am persuaded that future humans will use science and technology to become God-like and realize all the promises of religions, including remaking the universe and resurrecting those who died in the past. This is our cosmic destiny, and God’s plan for us.

His ideas are outlined in his book, titled “Tales of the Turing Church: Hacking religion, enlightening science, awakening technology.”

  1. It may well be that we are looking at a future where by our constant efforts to understand the universe and build a brighter future we may find ourselves with posthuman powers. I tend to be more curious though about the abilities and knowledge we have now and the next steps we can take to achieve them. What thoughts do you have on near future Transhumanism?

    Religion is often driven by the pursuit of community and communal meaning, and science by the pursuit of knowledge, but a community may work towards the pursuit of knowledge in order to discover and deepen their sense of meaning. The more diverse groups learn to work cooperatively the greater their potential as specialized members of a symbiotic system. By the standards of prehistoric humans we are already ‘God-like”, which gives credit to the likely result that posthumans may well look to modern humans as modern humans look to prehistoric humans.

  3. Athena, of course there’ll be progress in the next few decades, but I don’t think it will be very fast, let alone exponential. Of course I could be wrong, but I don’t believe in a hard singularity. It’s a marathon, not a sprint.
