Khannea Sun Tzu is an activist futurist. She is best described as both cosmist and cosmicist, 802 pre-extropy “upwinger”, is of politically leaning towards Socialist Libertarianism, in everyday life staunchly epicurian, a concept and lifestyle artist, and a “Pearcian” Abolitionist. Living in the Netherlands, in the heart of the Hague, Khannea is a woman of transgender origin.
Stemming from a long history as scenario builder and interaction designer, she voraciously explores all permutations of futurism, both Dystopian as well as Utopian, and brings all available extremes to a proactive political agenda, focusing increasingly in the debates surrounding Basic Income, Technological Unemployment and global resource depletion. Khannea has on many events expressed deep concern about negative trends in US foreign and domestic policy, corporatism world-wide encroaching disparity and the growing trend towards oligarchy and as techno-progressive speculates on and argues for solutions. Very active in the space industrialization community, she has often argued for Space Based Solar Power and the industrial development of asteroid exploitation.
Khannea is outspoken and passionate, and brings a polemic message to the transhumanist community, providing an ideological counterweight to often (as she claims) ruthless Libertarian thought in the Transhuman, Singularitarian and Extropian communities. She has been member of the Dutch Pirate Party, and is quite sympathetic to the Venus Project, and similar aspirational and utopian movements.
She is a devout Life Extension activist and has extensively worked with and explored Virtual Reality environments.
