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.

Three Moments from the History of the Exploration of the Solar System

by Marcelo Rinesi

The vampire secret space program was too rushed to fully erase Transylvania-born rocket pioneer Hermann Oberth from the history books, but they were able to disguise their Moon-bound launches in the chaos of WWII Eastern Europe. So strong were Von Braun’s oaths of silence (or so deep his fear of what had been left behind) that it took the Apollo program a handful of missions, and the sanity of more than one astronaut, before they accepted the message: the Moon was not for the living.

Short story: But Do Mental Asylums Dream of Electric Seas?

by Marcelo Rinesi

Visiting my patients at the Navy Asylum was my favorite part of the week. Cyber-psychiatrists don’t get many success stories, even if mine couldn’t leave the asylum without risking a psychotic break.

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.

Israel can and should become an important contributor to the international geroscience research, development, application and education

by Ilia Stambler

Vetek (Seniority) – the Movement for Longevity and Quality of Life (Israel)

Summary

Due to the aging of the global population and the derivative increase in major aging-related non-communicable diseases and their economic burden, there is an urgent international need to promote the research, development and application of and education on effective and safe therapeutic geroscience interventions. These interventions are designed to mitigate degenerative aging processes, thus preventing and eliminating the main underlying contributors for major chronic aging-related diseases and thus improving the healthy and productive longevity for the elderly population. Insofar as aging is the main contributing factor of major chronic age-related diseases, the research and development efforts in the fields of geroscience and of major chronic diseases are integrally related. Israel can be an important contributor to these international R&D efforts, for which it can offer its proven record of scientific and technological achievements and innovation, its strong supportive infrastructure for research and development, its highly skilled scientific and technological work force, including leadership in diverse branches of biomedical research on aging and aging-related diseases. Yet a stronger effort will be needed to build on those strengths and realize the country’s potential in the field for the benefit of the Israeli and global population. Israel can help further promote the field, not only locally, but internationally, by creating and sharing policy suggestions for the advancement of the field.

Short Story: Flesh Telemetry

by Marcelo Rinesi

At least I’m not going to fuck the mail drone on live video. The joke falls flat, and not just because your mom isn’t there to hear it. She wouldn’t have laughed anyway. She has never understood that biogging isn’t porn, that you’re just streaming your body metrics 24/7, and if that includes sleeping with your boyfriend that’s just part of it. It’s not porn.

Short story: The Death-Baiters of the Worldwide Catastrophe Circuit

by Marcelo Rinesi

A man and a woman sat in a hotel room in a city haunted by death. The only noise coming through the window was the sarcastic — or so it sounded — instructions of the quarantine drones. They were in that city, on that night, on purpose. Ten thousand casualties had been predicted by the WHO for the year’s headline virus, the smallest catastrophe where points could be scored.

Short story: My Brother the Sensor

by Marcelo Rinesi

Whatever the Ministry finds in his weekly blood samples they will never share, but we’ve shared a room for the few years my little brother has been alive, and if his uneasy breathing worsened or improved I would notice at once. The health drone’s visits are neither for him nor for us. His blood is for the epidemiological surveillance network - a stream in the red delta of hundreds of other kids with weak immune systems.

Short story: Sideways

by Marcelo Rinesi

There’s a trick to watching ad-supported videos in phones, TVs, or laptops: during the ads look just above the camera, so it thinks you’re paying attention and it doesn’t show you too many of them. Sadly, it doesn’t work for the videos in employee training and citizenship education, as it doesn’t fool the brain sensors.

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.”
