A transhuman biohacker implanted over 50 chips and magnets in her body

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, computing, transhumanism

‘Tis all in the senses.

On her blog, Lepht Anonym describes herself as “a faceless, genderless British biohacker. It lacks both gods and money and likes people, science, and practical transhumanism.” Anonym practices, sometimes referred to as grinding — a subculture of biohacking — DIY surgery to insert electronic hardware under the skin.

At the Grinderfest in 2019, Anonym inserted a little “pirate box” device in her upper right arm.

“DEATH DEFANGED Cryonics, Cryothanasia and the Future of Sentience” with David Pearce, Author, Philosopher and well-known TransHumanistThis service will be on ZOOM and YouTube Live Stream only, not in person.
Zoom at 6:00 PM Eastern Time.
Live Stream at 7:00 PM Eastern Time.
Stay after the close of the YouTube streaming for the Zoom After Party until??:00 pm. Enjoy fellowship in the extended discussions with Neal and Immortalists & Friends from Around the World, sharing bold ideas on health, longevity, and technology!(Note: Mr. Pearce was scheduled last month to give a presentation but due to circumstances beyond our control we did not have that presentation. We look forward this month to have David Pearce join us!)David Pearce is the author of 4 major works:“The Hedonistic Imperative”, “The Biointelligence Explosion: How Recursively Self-Improving Organic Robots will Modify their Own Source Code and Bootstrap Our Way to Full-Spectrum Superintelligence”, “Singularity Hypotheses: A Scientific and Philosophical Assessment”, & “Can Biotechnology Abolish Suffering?”
The Hedonistic Imperative (1995) advocates the use of biotechnology to abolish suffering throughout the living world. In 1998, he co-founded the World Transhumanist Association (H+) with Nick Bostrom. Transhumanists believe in the use of technology to overcome our biological limitations.
Currently, Pearce is a fellow of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, and sits on the futurist advisory board of the Lifeboat Foundation. He is also the director of bioethics of Invincible Wellbeing and is on the advisory boards of the Center on Long-Term Risk, the Organization for the Prevention of Intense Suffering and since 2021 the Qualia Research Institute.

Can We Cheat Death via Mind-Uploading?

Posted by in categories: ethics, life extension, neuroscience, transhumanism

Can the sum of knowledge and experience we’ve accumulated over a lifetime live on after we die? The concept of “mind-uploading” is a modern version of an age-old human dream. Transhumanism hopes to not only enhance human capacities but even transcend human limitations such as bodily death.

The main character of Oscar Wilde’s famous novel The Picture of Dorian Gray wishes for eternal youth. And his wish is fulfilled: Dorian Gray remains young and exquisitely beautiful, whereas his portrait grows old, bearing the burden of aging, human shortcomings and imperfections. As we know, the story ended badly for Dorian.

In our time, scientific discoveries and new technologies promise to bring us closer to his dream. And no deal with the Devil is needed for doing so: once we understand how to manipulate the building blocks of life as well as the material foundations of our consciousness, emotions and character traits, so the story goes, we will be able to broaden human nature and overcome its inherent limitations such as aging, suffering and cognitive, emotional and moral shortcomings.

H+ DAO and Transhumanism with Dr. Natasha Vita-More

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transhumanism

H+DAO Interview:


“Transhumanism is a philosophy, worldview, and a movement,” Dr. Natasha Vita-More states in the book “Transhumanism: What is it?” Essentially, it’s the idea of being able to move beyond being human, and finding solutions to living longer, healthier lives.

Natasha holds a Ph.D. from the University of Plymouth. As a long-term figure in the transhumanist movement, she spends much of her time speaking and lecturing around the world. Her areas of expertise include topics such as trans-humanity and human evolution, artificial intelligence, and what it means to be human in an AI-driven world.

2045: A New Era for Humanity

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

http://2045.com http://gf2045.com.
In February of 2012 the first Global Future 2045 Congress was held in Moscow. There, over 50 world leading scientists from multiple disciplines met to develop a strategy for the future development of humankind. One of the main goals of the Congress was to construct a global network of scientists to further research on the development of cybernetic technology, with the ultimate goal of transferring a human’s individual consciousness to an artificial carrier.

2012–2013. The global economic and social crises are exacerbated. The debates on the global paradigm of future development intensifies.

Better, Stronger, Faster: The Future of the Bionic Body

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry, cyborgs, engineering, mobile phones, neuroscience, transhumanism

In the future, a woman with a spinal cord injury could make a full recovery; a baby with a weak heart could pump his own blood. How close are we today to the bold promise of bionics—and could this technology be used to improve normal human functions, as well as to repair us? Join Bill Blakemore, John Donoghue, Jennifer French, Joseph J. Fins, and P. Hunter Peckham at “Better, Stronger, Faster,” part of the Big Ideas Series, as they explore the unfolding future of embedded technology.

This program is part of the Big Ideas Series, made possible with support from the John Templeton Foundation.

Life as a Digital Being

In the future we might see the rise of minds entirely on computers, be it uploaded humans, transhumans, or artificial intelligence. But what would such an existence be like? Would they interact with our world or live in entirely virtual realities or simulated universes?
