Transhuman Party promotes Radical Democracy & Collective Intelligence
Sep 29, 2017   Transhuman Party  

7.6 billion people are living on Earth, and every one of them deserves equal political power.

Transhuman Party (a new H+ organization) believes the future should be egalitarian, cooperative, inclusive, anti-hierarchal, motivated by egoless altruistic reform-seeking actions, with radical democracy and collective intelligence.

Let’s examine this more scientifically: a human is only about (roughly) say 2 percent different from a chimp. This photo goes a ways toward explaining why Istvan is so solipsistic:

The naked ape appears with his spouse and offspring to demonstrate his fitness to reproduce—and thus to rule. Istvan has said the first duty of a transhuman is to survive as an individual; posing with a spouse and offspring publicly displays the alpha naked ape’s fitness to genetically survive. Which segues into the overriding importance of charisma.

thus you have a synopsis of genetic survival->solipsism->charisma->politics.

” the future should be egalitarian, cooperative, inclusive, anti-hierarchal, motivated by egoless altruistic reform-seeking actions, with radical democracy and collective intelligence.”
When i read something like that, i realize that i have a different opinion what the future should be like.
I believe that with global communication via the world wide web, there will be a cultural darwinism and only the fittest, that is the most technology adapted will survive. That will result in a much smaller global population, which is what we need to increase the quality of live on our planet.

Hank writes ‘should’: a moral, idealistic sentiment that does appear at this time to be hopeless.

There is hope physically, materially.

Morally and aesthetically, the outlook for a collective world of the future does seem to be hopeless. But that is collective. Libertarians who say there is no ‘we’ ‘us’ ‘ours’, are technically (whatever ‘technically’ means) correct.

Whatever ‘correct’ might mean.

Will go along with you Alfred, long as no reference is made to a verifiable morality—because morality is not a futurist word.

...a libertarian calling the State immoral/amoral, is not the sort of doubletalk I am going to pay attention to.

@ instamatic, I thing morals and ethics always had the function to maintain the status quo. I want some thing new. Starting in 1997 i had a forum on the world wide web, promoting Extra Terrestrial Migration and Gene Engineering. It was on for 10 years and had 1000 thens of comments. It is now hosted by the “way back machine” check it our. www.immortalitysystems.com

at www.immortalitysystems.com,

you write:

“We have to be immortal.”

Who says we have to be immortal? Who does this imperative derive from? God? Alfred Schickentanz?

...manifest destiny?

@ instamatic, i grew up with the belief that i would have eternal life, if i followed the rules, (10 commandments) and could be like god, i now realize that we will now acquire the virtues we have given our gods thru science and technology. Remember, we created the gods in our image and not the other way round. A good rule to live by: “The only limit is our imagination”

Here is an other website with useful information

“...we will now acquire the virtues we have given our gods thru science…”

Virtues? isn’t virtues an anthropic word, not applicable in the future tense?
Understood we have to communicate in sapien-terms. Nonetheless there is too much conflation for my taste. Present tense does not translate well into future-tense.
Take space ‘colonization’: at this time there are few people in space- on the International Space Station—last we heard. Someday there may be more humans (an unknown number, naturally) in Earth orbit.
Earth orbit and perhaps the Moon may be the extent of human space ‘colonization’.
Space may well be colonized—if space is ever colonized—by beings having less in common with us than we have with animals. in such a scenario space would not be colonized in an anthropic sense of the word colonization. So your speculation amounts to nothing.
Like an ape gazing at the Moon.
The Moon might not be colonized by humans at all; people might visit the Moon again- or perhaps not. Maybe ‘bots and v advanced, unknowable, unpredictable, beings might ‘colonize’ the Moon.
You asked in your website for scientists to contact you..you wrote you’d love scientists to contact you. Meaning you are not a scientist yourself? If so then you can’t back up much of what you’re postulating. You’re merely a techno-cheerleader—which is today dime-a-dozen.

You can’t refer someone to your two-decade old layman site, expecting them to be motivated by it. In the ‘90s it was different- that was then, this now.
You are German/Austrian in extraction? Germanics are quite efficient, motivated; why would a Teutonic as motivated as yourself want to visit a techno-progressive site unless you were to transform yourself from a layman to a scientist? Coming to a technoprog site as a layman with just another 20 yr old immortalism & space site is not the way to go, IMO. What would it gain you?

@instamatic, for your info. The underlying principle of evolution, starting with the hydrogen atom is, to form larger, harmoniously integrated structures. Man kinds move into orbital space is the next logical step. Society will now form an organic being and extend into all available space.

“Society will now form an organic being and extend into all available space.”

Society? What society? And despite what you may think—without being able to see into your mind to discover what it is you think, and what it is you are throwing out as public relations—no-one can predict the future.
Question for now: why did you choose to comment @ Hank’s ultra-progressive thread? Who here is going to care a jot? You cannot comment at a technoprogressive site presuming your words are going to be accepted uncritically.

@ instamatic, “no-one can predict the future.” does that mean, one should not tray? I see may self migrating to orbital space. I believe in the placebo effect and know, it es good for my health.

You’re a SF writer, writing about other people migrating to orbital space. When I read your comments I think ‘thank God I don’t live in Europe.’
Europe must be more deluded than the W. Hemisphere. This is over the top:

“Society will now form an organic being and extend into all available space.”
