GREG BURCH SAID: "...organizing a well-funded, well-staffed and
well-equipped clinic and research facility where "wide-open" life extension
and other transhumanist technology can be carried forward. I've done quite
a bit of thinking about what would be required, from a legal and business
perspective, to accomplish this. If you're interested, I'd be happy to
discuss it with you...."
CYMM SAYS: I'm interested... theoretically at first. Maybe I'm paranoid; but
I see modern technology as having great potential to liberate those who
understand and would have access to it.
"Liberating" in the sense that technological developments - especially in AI
& robotics - could produce individuals who are truly economically
I am not so sure that this idea is appealing either to sovereign
nation-states; or practically sovereign corporations.
Frankly, I see thinly disguised attempts to control any "liberating"
technology already in the making... the "war on supplements" is a good
beginning. It's funny how jurisprudence fabricates the "rational man" ...yet
the assumption behind laws against drugs etc. insist that the average person
has the rationality of a potato.
Greg, I'd entertain any discussion that does not run too much a risk of
making me a marked man...
