Too bad about transhumaniste francophone.
You've already added zest and a refreshing perspective to the extropians list.

Yes, that's a very good explanation, and it prompts me to think that perhaps
Hans Moravec will need to fine tune his robots in France, just to make sure

human beings."
(I don't think robots will accuse socio-biologists of being fascists.)

non-sensory experience

We move into a better future in proportion as science displaces superstition.
