Why are you Transhuman (ist)?
I am a transhumanist because I want to replace the pain and suffering of Darwinian life with a civilization of superintelligence, super longevity, and super happiness. In 1995, I wrote a manifesto, The Hedonistic Imperative, which advocates using biotechnology to end suffering throughout the living world, and the creation of life with a motivational architecture of gradients of superhuman bliss. In 1998, I co-founded with Nick Bostrom the World Transhumanist Association (Humanity Plus).
Since 1996, David has run websites promoting the transhumanist project(s), starting with the original motherlode site:
As an ‘Icon’ David is the founder of the ‘Hedonistic’ Imperative element of transhumanism.
