Survival of the Fittest







View more presentations from Humanity+.



When you state that the future anti-transhumanist movement will be fueled with fears of survival, what you really are saying is that future humans will have no choice but to fight to survive.

While the entire presentation was given from a transhumanist viewpoint there we're lots of the information that is very applicable to the current state of the debate.  The truth of the matter is that none of us truly know how it will play itself out in society and thus everyone is anticipating what most tend to claim will not occur. I'm talking about a generalized movement that opposes radical enhancing/modification technology, so when it comes dealing with this eventual "uprising" Robert suggest the movement should embrace they're fears based on survival and convert them... (slide 52)

Why would anyone need converting if true tolerance and equality existed...

Wow seriously I don't get it, with statements like "Transhumanism has already won" and "convert them" how can such a movement gain "equal" rights if they don't see themselves as equals..


I spend a great deal of my time studying people on both sides and I think I understand where the fear is coming from, it's not coming from any such "anti-transhumanist" groups but rather it comes from prominent futures themselvs calling for the end of the current human existence. Not to mention at the extremes even calling humans a sub-species..


Are Transhumanist purposefully engaging in an unhealthy debate over the future of human race, a future they choose to no longer be a part of as an attempt to stir general public sympathy?


With that said, how do you go through so many movements in your presentation and derive that the core philosophy fueling any such movement would be acting out the sole behalf of survival. Many slaves survived being property, and as far as I know we don't purposefully kill gay people, therefore they must be content correct? Of course not I was being sarcastic and yes survival may be the cranial drive but the movements themselves described in this talked formed as a direct need for equality, an equality that is solely eroding with the aid of technology.

Yes change is coming but in the wake of this coming change not everything has to or will change...

      Video Games as "Alternate Realities" (video)

      As E3 unfolds, and the electronic entertainment industry announces its upcoming releases, lets take a moment to think about what a video game actually is. A key element in making a video game lies in designing unique perceptions. The laws of physics are literally yours for the building! This is a serious power to have, and it points out the fact that game designers don't just produce things, they produce experiences. Minds are effected dramatically by this.

      As games become more advanced they will become full virtual realities. The power of the designer will increase dramatically as this occurs. Altered perceptions will be crafted artistically. What will life become?

      #3DRevolution


      The magical technological alliance led to the creation of the #3DRevolution, a digital alliance of cyber warriors who set themselves to maintain the trans-dimensional separation of space and cyberspace.

      Oh technology, how quickly you grow in power and how quickly you invoke your magic. Did you think I wouldn't notice? I knew that science was not going to be enough for you. You were never happy being trapped within the boundaries of this universe. I do notice you. I do notice that you continue to bridge our worlds in an effort to create a unified existence, yet as part of your desire is to control/become the universe be sure to remember this: you are not the only inter-dimensional being on the playing field. The total control you seek can only be wielded by those who control both of these paradigms, science and magick.

      "Warning This is only a Game..."

      Tick Tock speak of a task, that will not be easy for you to mask, Tick Tock merge and unite. If you truly seek it, you will turn into light. Tick Tock assimilate, you won't succeed if you fail to translate.


      You have awakened the Wizard...
