A New Kind of Governance, ‘Transhuman’ Governance… (A Proposal)

When thinking about the IAmTranshuman project I always end up thinking about policy and things that could be improved even in small ways to help society be more transhuman. For example one of the problems with democracy is that it is impractical to have an absolute democracy on a large scale. Every decision doesn’t scale…

Why IAmTranshuman (ist)? Let’s begin with (almost) the most basic definition of Transhumanism, from Max More, circa 1990: “Transhumanism is a class of philosophies of life that seek the continuation and acceleration of the evolution of intelligent life beyond its currently human form and human limitations by means of science and technology, guided by life-promoting…

Why are you transhuman (ist)? I am transhuman because I am human.  To improve oneself, to reach for the stars, to seek deeper understanding, and to seek beyond what we know are all fundamental traits of humanity that are also the underpinning philosophy of Transhumanism.  In many ways, we, as a species, have always been…

Dinorah Delfin

Why are you transhuman (ist)? I am a Transhumanist because absolute agency over one’s individual evolution and senescence is not just a human virtue, but also a human right and responsibility. Officially declaring aging a disease, as transhumanists are trying to do, is the first step towards the democratization of regenerative technologies and means to…

Khannea

Khannea made transhumanist statements hosting cyberpunk themed roleplaying games in the 1980s. Pretty early in the 1990s she absorbed and espoused the whole gamut of core values of transhumanism – genetic manipulation, interfaces, cybernetics, space industrialization, AI, 3D printing, nootropics – but in the late 1990s she figured out that all this had a name….

Jonathan Lyons

Why are you transhuman (ist)? I am transhuman because I want to surpass the sluggish process of evolution. I want to be smarter and more resilient than I am, and I see technological, self-directed evolution as the path toward those goals.  Increase my longevity. Let me breathe underwater. Let me learn things more completely and…

David J Kelley

Why IAmTranshuman (ist)? “I am ‘Transhuman’ in part because it is part of the only hope I think we have as a species.  It is only through helping each other and give as many as possible the tools to move forward that we will survive in the long run. It is literally for my children…
