Why are you transhuman (ist)?

I am a transhumanist because I want to be part of a a possible future where women and men could live much longer (if they wish so). They could have a better health, perhaps one day without aging (mortality). Having sustainable bodies will allow us more time to love each other, to help each other, to discover each other and to ensure a sustainable environment for the planet.

I am also a transhumanist, to change myself (with technology and with other means) to be happier, more attentive to others, to better understand the world, actually to be more human.
