The Transhuman Stock Photo Collection

Paul Spiegel

Why are you Transhuman(ist)? I am Transhuman because humans evolve to be better than they once were.  For millennia, we didn’t even realize this, and when we did, in some fashion or another, we took it for granted for several hundred years more after that realization. For nearly all that time, we didn’t try to…

How Transhuman Is Someone?

This article articulates the details of the rating system we will be using for public figures in terms of their apparent inclinations to transhumanist thought.  That is not to say that anyone of the people we rate are actual transhumanists, or that they identify as such, but when it comes to aligning to our values…

Ted Peters

I am a transhumanist sympathizer who incorporates H+ with a critical eye. On the one hand, transhumanists rightly envision a utopian future superior to the present era and engage in the effort to actualize that vision. I applaud this. On the other hand, transhumanists risk becoming unrealistic when thinking that every human vicissitude can be…

Ethics Board Nominations for Public Comment

There are a number of reasons the IAmTranshuman project needs an ethics review board, but the major reason is to oversee the micro-grant program and other operations and to ensure we are doing the right thing.  As a Transhumanist Organization ethics should be above reproach.  One of the key issues is we don’t want even…

Why are you transhuman (ist)? I am a Transhumanist because it gives me hope about humanity’s potential for greatness.

Stephen Valadez

Why are you transhuman (ist)? “I see no limit to humankind’s capacity to change itself for the better and the capacity to express ourselves across the firmament. To end disease. To end aging, itself a genetic disease. To reach across the stars in not millennia, but decades. We are remarkable, all of us, and there…

Eric Schulke

Why are you Transhuman (ist)? We don’t know what the universe or consciousness are, we don’t know what is going on. Consequently, we don’t even know what we ultimately need and want in life. To not want to know that would be absurd, would be to flail life away. Plus, there are too many fulfilling…

Aubrey de Grey

Why are you transhuman (ist)? I’d like to divide my answer into two, answering “Why do you have transhumanist values?” and “Why do you call yourself a transhumanist?”. To the former, my answer is: because I recognize that pioneering technologies have a unique capacity to enhance people’s quality of life, and I think suffering (i.e….

James Hughes

James “J” Hughes…

David Orban

Why are you transhuman(ist)?

David is the Founder and Managing Partner of Network Society Ventures, a seed-stage…

Khannea

Khannea made transhumanist statements hosting cyberpunk themed roleplaying games in the 1980s.

Wout Dedoncker

Why are you transhuman (ists)? It is what Homo Sapiens became naturally: already have we eliminated so many illnesses and offered an uplift in quality of life around the world. The future promises a lot of great tech that will even more so improve lives and extend them. I’m actively sharing news, more people need…

Marc Roux

Why are you Transhuman(ist)? First of all, I am transhuman because I am human. I came to transhumanism is a bit peculiar. Indeed, like almost no transhumanist, I am a historian by training; a medieval historian; even stranger: a Byzantinologist (What’s that?). As bizarre as it may sound, it’s my doctoral studies and my interest…

Amal Graafstra

Why are you transhuman(ist)? I am transhuman because there is not other kind of human to be.

TJ Wass

Why are you transhuman (ist)?
