Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cyborgs, robotics/AI, transhumanism

It’s not that often I get to participate directly in these radical technologies, but I did so recently when Grant Rudolph, Clinical Director at Echo Rock Neurotherapy in Mill Valley, California invited me to try his Direct Neurofeedback techniques. Via his computer and EEG wire hookups, Mr. Rudolph echoed my brainwave information back into my head at an imperceptible level. I did two sessions of Direct Neurofeedback.

There’s no need to fear a robot taking your job – not if you become one yourself

Posted by in categories: cyborgs, life extension, robotics/AI, transhumanism

A new article recently out discussing issues of #transhumanism:


Hello reader, are you trans? Transhuman, that is.
