1er mai technoprogressiste pour une vie en bonne santé beaucoup plus longue by Didier Coeurnelle

Depuis le 1er mai 2016, l’espérance de vie en bonne santé a augmenté de près d’un trimestre dans le monde. La durée moyenne de la vie des hommes et des femmes en Belgique est maintenant de plus de 80 ans. Elle est d’environ 70 ans dans le monde. Des millions de citoyens qui seraient… [lire la suite]

Frequently Asked Questions on the Ethics of Lifespan and Healthspan Extension by Ilia Stambler

The mission of healthy life extension, or healthy longevity promotion, raises a broad variety of questions and tasks, relating to science and technology, individual and communal ethics, and public policy, especially health and science policy. Despite the wide variety, the related questions may be classified into three groups. The first group of questions concerns the feasibility of the accomplishment of life extension. Is it theoretically and technologically possible? What are our grounds for optimism? What are the means to ensure that the l...

A Process of Transformation by William Sims Bainbridge

Whether by coincidence or some mysterious cosmic force, May 2017 saw the publication of two books I wrote about the tension and possible partnership between religion and science.  The first was a science fiction novel titled Revival, and the second, a science research monograph titled Dynamic Secularization.  Both were written from the perspective of the radical revolution caused by information technology and computer science, and both postulated that we stand at a turning point in history.  Both also conceptualized human cult...

What’s new in science & tech? by David Brin

Okay, let’s turn to the side of civilization that is doing best. Doing spectacularly well in fact, despite a relentless campaign to undermine science. Just today—as I type this, in fact—I am in a conference call as a member of the advisory council of The Planetary Society, hearing reports about how TPS - under Bill Nye’s charismatic leadership - has seen a turnaround, with increasing membership and a social media following that has crested above a million! Why? Because people are noticing how many wondrous accomplishm...

Comey’s Firing: Do We Live in a Kleptocracy? by John G. Messerly

Every time I sit down to write about something I want to write about—like how to find meaning in a secular age, or ponder the imminent birth of my new granddaughter—I find my reverie interrupted by the political turmoil surrounding me.

The lessons the left should (and shouldn’t) take from the victory of Macron by Rick Searle

In 2016 populism burst upon liberal democracies like a whirlwind. Yet, since Trump’s election in November of last year the storm appears to have passed. There was the defeat of the far right presidential candidate Norbert Hofer in Austria (of all places) in December of last year followed by the loss of the boldly pompadoured (which seems to be a thing now on the right) Geert Wilders in parliamentary elections in the Netherlands a few months back, followed by the seeming victory of the Kutcher faction over the Bannon faction in the Trump ad...

More Than Human? And science roundup! by David Brin

== More than we are? ==

Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface venture that was founded to allow humans to keep up with the advancements made in machines. The interface is intended to work by augmenting that which makes us human: our brains.  I’ve written extensively, in both science and fiction, about the quandaries of human consciousness and the murky, non-linear paths that might have brought us here. For example.
