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…

The End of the Transhuman House 2.0

(Provo) The story of the Transhuman House goes back a number of years.  Starting with the Foundation looking at a location in Seattle.  This location was a good quarter acre with about 2500 square foot 4 bedroom house with a two-car garage.  This didn’t initially pan out due to the cost overhead and not getting…

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…

Why are you Transhuman (ist)? For as long as I can remember I’ve been fascinated with everything about the world and my perception of it. My late father read to me from his science and medical books when I was a prelingual infant—the result being was that my first word, at age 18 months, was…

Kyrtin Atreides

Starting at a young age with modern medicine’s inability to treat his severe migraines Kyrtin began a process of self-experimentation which eventually produced a nootropic concoction which reduced migraine frequency by 90%, and a Psychoacoustic modification with roughly the same benefit.  This led him to discover the works of Futurists such as Jacque Fresco, and…

Daniel Kelley

Why are you transhuman (ist)? I’ve been a transhumanist before I had even heard the term. Having gone through 8 years of physical therapy to be able to walk I have always been aware of humanity’s limitations and had a great interest in technologies place in overcoming that, be it traditional physical problems or even…

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…

Tom Ross

A producer, creative consultant, and author yet feels odd referring to himself in the third person. My political experience includes a 2001 testimony before a U.S. House Subcommittee on Media and Information Technology Policy (The Anti-Spam Bill). In 2002 the Governor of California appointed me to a Department of Consumer Affairs board. I became the…
