FM2030 (1930 to 2000) One of the most important icons of transhumanism that everyone should know about is FM2030. From HPlusPedia:
“FM 2030 (born Fereidoun M. Esfandiary, Persian: فریدون اسفندیاری) was a Belgian-born American-Iranian futurist, philosopher and transhumanist born October 15, 1930 in Brussels. He was also an athlete, author, consultant and teacher. He became notable as a transhumanist with the book Are You a Transhuman?: Monitoring and Stimulating Your Personal Rate of Growth in a Rapidly Changing World, published in 1989. Upon his death, the was the first person to be vitrified, rather than frozen, at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation.” https://hpluspedia.org/wiki/FM-2030
