Transhuman Debate 2.0 in SF East Bay


Posted: Mar 26, 2016

IEET is co-sponsoring “Transhuman Debate 2.0” on April 2, 2016, from 12:30 - 4:00pm in Oakland, CA, at Octopus Literary Salon, 2101 Webster St, #170 - only 2 blocks from BART.

HOW DOES CONSCIOUSNESS ARISE? (1:00 - 1:30)

Andres Gomez Emilsson says neural signaling by classical means doesn’t seem sufficient for to achieve ‘global binding’ - due to signal travel time

Randal A. Koene says the brain (at least during times of conscious awareness) appears to be operating in a more discretized manner, where signal travel time is much smaller than the discrete intervals and therefore must be perceived as unitary and instantaneous even without non-classical causes.

——

SECOND AMENDMENT: ‘RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS’ (1:40 - 2:25)

Question: Should there be stricter gun laws, to improve public safety? Or should laws stay the same, because USA ‘freedom’ includes access to firearms?

Anti-Guns: Scott Jackish, Robert Wasley

Pro-Guns: Anatoly Karlin, Mike Johnson

——

EUGENICS (2:40 - 3:40)

Questions: Do you want a future with Mandatory Pre-Natal Diagnoses, Designer Babies, One-or-Two Child Policies, and Parent Licenses that limit how many children you have?

Should there be a transhumanist goal that all humans should have 140 IQ, plus great health and beauty? With Eugenics helping to achieve that?

Or do you think the government should NEVER meddle in Reproduction?

Pro-Eugenics: Andre Gomez Emilsson, Hank Pellissier, Anya Petrova

Anti-Eugenics: Marc McAllister, Ted Peters, Brian Hanley
