This module is an introduction to Transhumanism, a global movement of people who want to transcend the limitations of our human biology using science and technology. It will cover some of the latest breakthroughs that will pave the way for humanity to extend the healthy human lifespan, to merge with artificial intelligence, and to expand our wellbeing through abundance. It will emphasise why now the most important time is in human history to shape the future of our species through the Transhumanist movement – why we need to embrace it, accelerate it in a positive direction for society, and make the technologies available for everyone. As a follow up to the keynote, there would be an option to provide a workshop (“Cards for Transhumanity”), to have the audience form teams, and each individual draws a card that contains the 3 core pillars of transhumanism: super longevity, super intelligence and super wellbeing. They then draw from a deck of cards containing the technologies discussed from the earlier presentation e.g. CRISPR, brain-computer interfaces, biochips, 3D printed organs, augmented reality, blockchain. The individuals each pitch to their team members on their future transhuman experience based on the pillar and technologies, and come together as a team selecting one spokesperson from their team to pitch their future vision of humanity to the audience.

  1. Transpecies
    It's not limited to
    The fact that you can't fully Define human
    Cuz there's all kinds of diversity
    Terms of features and behavior
    And I'm not sure what you mean by human
    I kind of get a gist
    Humans don't necessarily shape-shift
    And you're kind of limited to what you see in the mirror
    short of
    But obviously there's certain aspects that you like
    When you say transhuman
    But it's not limited to
    I just perceive it as organic and non-organic intelligence
    With a vast open mind


    So you're going to monitor land ownership….
    Still playing the game of scarcity…
    You definitely have very little ideas
    That's because you were raised to think in a box to work in a box to drive in a box
    Basically a Jack In The Box
    Or Jane in the Box
    No offense
    But you're so small-minded people
    It's certain aspects
    And in other aspects
    You have such openness
    The irony

    I think in terms of a efficiency
    I'll leave it at that for now

  2. So I noticed there's a test going on right now
    Who is worthy and who is not worthy actors
    Well my assessment
    I would assume you wouldn't want the psychopath who is destructive to have any of this ability
    If when was going to go by Logic and reason
    Would that be correct?
    I don't necessarily blame you
    It would seem logical
    But that would also mean you have weakness because you could be destroyed
    You don't have to feel it for me to notice
    But it's understandable
    I want to be able to create my own heavens
    You can play private property on planet Earth
    Me I want to be able to create universes and explore
    Create many heavens
    My own universes
    I don't need yours
    I'm just saying

    Men's reproductive abilities and representation capabilities
    Men's designer bodies and brains
    Men's designer species
    Men's freedom
    Men's liberty
    Men's decadence
    Men's design
    Him too movement!
