'What is a human being, then?'
'An acorn that is unafraid to destroy itself in growing into a tree'

Transhumanism: the Idea
We foresee the feasibility of redesigning the human condition, including such parameters as the inevitability of aging, limitations on human and
artificial intellects, unchosen psychology, suffering, and our confinement to the planet earth.
World Transhumanist Association
Transhumanism is the movement for the merging of man and machine and the breaking down of arbitrary, evolution-imposed barriers to human potential.
Developments in genetics, nanotechnology, artificial intelligence and robotic control systems are hurtling toward the realization of the Transhumanist
The Agenda Revealed: Unstoppable Momentum
The parts for a DNA synthesizer can now be purchased for approximately $10,000. By 2010 a single person will be able to sequence or synthesize
10^10 bases a day. Within a decade a single person could sequence or synthesize all the DNA describing all the people on the planet many times over in
an eight-hour day or sequence his or her own DNA within seconds.
The Pace and Proliferation of Biological Technologies
Transhumanism will fit a well-defined need of the changing global economy. Trends such as automation and outsourcing are only the clumsy first steps
in the search for higher productivity reaching societys economic potential.
What is needed now is for dedicated transhumans to be developed and embedded into the global science and technology workforce. This will guarantee
the health of a global economy that is currently stumbling and veering towards collapse. The worlds decision-makers have thus quietly given the
go-ahead for the Transhumanist Revolution to proceed. In developing nations such as Nigeria, India, Taiwan, Venezuela and Mexico the World
Transhumanist Association has established its presence. Testing will commence in pursuit of all parameters required in defining a stable superworker.
These models will be applied in the farming of the first generation of Transhuman agents, who will then provide the brainpower and labour for the
development of the next generation. Iterations of this hyper-accelerated evolution will fuel the transformation of the entire economy.
Brainwaves and Cogniceuticals
Thinking, decision-making, learning, attention and memory all can and will be enhanced through genetic reengineering of the human brain, cyborg
implants, and (primarily in the early stages) cogniceuticals which expand neural capacity with traditional drug therapy and nanobot injections.
Expansion of the bandwidth of brainwaves has been achieved in preliminary tests and implies superintelligence of both the weak and strong varieties as
well as diminished REM sleep requirements.
The Transhumanist Agenda has already been buttressed by self-financed advocacy groups in all corners of the world. The Agenda has delicately aligned
itself with less controversial conclusions of bioethicists regarding disease treatment and longevity research.
The coming global depression will ensure that the worlds only saviour, the Transhumanist Revolution, shall not be stopped. Economic concerns of the
masses will override any contrary moral inclinations. Once the first stable generation takes its place among the world's elite, there will be no
A rogue element of the Transhumanist Syndicate had dealings with the Aum Shinrikyo cult and assisted their development of the Perfect Salvation
Initiative Headset. While the knowledge gained from this endeavour has proven useful to our ends, it was nonetheless brash and exposed the entire
establishment to bad publicity. The element has been neutralized and needed reforms have been carried out to constrain the actions of rogue agents
within the organization.

How I Can Be a Part of the Transhumanist Revolution
- Become politically active to ensure that your government embraces the Transhumanist Revolution with as smooth a transition as
- Consider volunteering for neural and physiological modifications sooner rather than later in the interest of the greater cause.
