Why # IAmTranshuman (ist)? I became a Transhuman, or as I call it an “Architected Human” in December 2018. At that time I received life-extending and life-saving, technologies including a mechanical heart valve and pacemaker. This life-changing event introduced me to the concept of Transhumanism.  Transhumanism is now a key part of my research, writing,…

Dan Elton

For a long time, I was primarily interested in science and figuring out how the world works. A few years ago, however, I started to become more aware of the vast amounts of suffering occurring in our world, both in humans and in other organisms. At the same time, I also started to become more…

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…

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…

James Hughes

Why are you Transhuman(ist)?

Amal Graafstra

Why are you transhuman(ist)? I am transhuman because there is not other kind of human to be. Transcending our limitations by augmenting our capabilities is intrinsically human – it is a primary defining character of human beings.

TJ Wass

Why are you transhuman (ist)? I see lots of limitations in existing human capabilities – including limitations in our bodies, our psychology, our intelligence, and our sociability These limitations significantly curtail human experience and risk accelerating a new dark age (or worse) if we stumble under the current set of complex challenges facing humanity I…

Michael Garfield

After fourteen years as a public speaker and multimedia performer on the trail of a new unifying theory to explain major evolutionary transitions (including the one we’re all participating in), I now split my time between: hosting the Future Fossils Podcast (fun fact: the guest for episode 130 was Lydia Laurenson, founder of The New Modality), performing as a singer-songwriter/avant-guitarist,…

John Kerecz

Why are you transhuman (ist)? I believe that humans are powerful in this electronic, transhuman age, but it seems that we do not yet realize our power. We are just starting to oppose death and global issues!? We must realize our power and use science and technology to ascend as transhumanists. John J Kerecz 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…

Gennady Stolyarov II

Why #IAmTranshuman (ist)? I have been a transhumanist ever since I found out about human mortality. My illustrated children’s book Death is Wrong describes much of my personal history and how, as a child, I kept asking my parents about what comes later – and then what – and when I received the answer, “And…

Newton Lee

Why IAmTranshuman (ist)? Astronaut Neil Armstrong said on the Apollo 11 moon landing in 1969, “One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” Transhumanism is the next logical step in the evolution of humankind, and it is the existential solution to the long-term survival of the human race. Newton Lee is a computer…

Blaire Ostler

Why IAmTranshuman (ist)? “I am a transhumanist because I am a mother. I was born with biological abnormalities that made conception, gestation, and delivery of my children life-threatening. If it weren’t for technological innovation, I’d be dead. Natural selection tried to kill me, but that was not my fate. Instead, I’m alive with three healthy,…

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…
