Extropian Principles 3.0
    #841105 - 08/24/02 05:38 PM (21 years, 8 months ago)

This is an interesting sight I found while researching AI about a year ago.
A Transhumanist Declaration
Here is a little teaser to wet your appitite.

Extropianism is a transhumanist philosophy. The Extropian Principles define a specific version or "brand" of transhumanist thinking. Like humanists, transhumanists favor reason, progress, and values centered on our well being rather than on an external religious authority. Transhumanists take humanism further by challenging human limits by means of science and technology combined with critical and creative thinking. We challenge the inevitability of aging and death, and we seek continuing enhancements to our intellectual abilities, our physical capacities, and our emotional development. We see humanity as a transitory stage in the evolutionary development of intelligence. We advocate using science to accelerate our move from human to a transhuman or posthuman condition. As physicist Freeman Dyson has said: "Humanity looks to me like a magnificent beginning but not the final word."

What would a "transhumanist" society be like?

Well for one it would live on the forward edge of technology pushing forward and not looking back. Void of religions. I think it would kind of suck. Very non emotional and almost robotic. In fact if you read further into it that is the posthuman condition mentioned above.
