Cosmodeism: Prologue to a Theology of Transhumanism by Tsvi Bisk

Introduction Freud’s disciple, Otto Rank once wrote that the “need for a truly religious ideology … is inherent in human nature and its fulfillment is basic to any kind of social life”. If Transhumanism is to become a universal phenomenon it must include what Jung called a divine drama that is universally compelling.

A new therapeutic approach against COVID-19 Pneumonia by Ilia Stambler

The novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has grown to become a global public health emergency. Currently, no specific drugs or vaccines are available to cure the patients with COVID-19 infection. Hence, there is a large unmet need for a safe and effective treatment for COVID-19 infected patients, especially the severe cases.  A new study offers a promising pathway for developing such a treatment.

Fourteen Reforms to Rescue USA Democracy by Hank Pellissier

The USA is a sub-par, wretchedly-flawed ‘democracy.’

A Princeton/Northwestern study suggests the US government more closely resembles an oligarchy or a corporatocracy than a democracy because “economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy, while mass-based interest groups and average citizens have little or no independent influence.”

IEET affiliate scholar Steve Fuller’s Talk at Royal Society of London

On 25 September 2019, IEET affiliate scholar Steve Fuller gave a Codex Talk at the Royal Society of London, commemorating the ‘top 50 innovators’ on the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci. Da Vinci authored the ‘Codex’ in question, which is a notebook of his thoughts, including a drawing of ‘Vitruvian Man’, which begins Fuller’s talk.

The ‘fork in the road for the future of humanity’ refers to transhumanism and posthumanism, which Fuller treats as projecting radically alternative visions for the hum...

From Transcendental Dopes to Transhumanists: Prolegomena to a Futurist Take on the History and Philosophy of Science by Steve Fuller

It is now fashionable to condemn our species’ exalted self-regard for precipitating that apocalypse in waiting known as the ‘Anthropocene’. Nevertheless, I shall heretically argue that we really know more than we normally think we do. But I don’t mean what Michael Polanyi famously called ‘tacit knowledge’, the context-based type of knowing that cannot be reduced to verbal or mathematical formulas. On the contrary, I mean the sort of knowledge that is generated from the production of verbal and mathematical formulas. They lay down...
