Love & peace, may I become a Buddah for the benefit of all.
Having kicked about in Extropian and transhuman circles for a while now, I
am clearer in my mind why the transhuman 'gradualist' approach is not
The so-called 'radical' transhumanism is no longer radically futurist - it
is just a philosophical wing of big business and the political mainstream.
With the adoption of the internet on a wide scale and the NASDAQ explosion,
weight of mainstream commercial and media opinion has actually been

Have you read any philosophical journals lately ... long-winded,
self-important, content-free cryptic garbage.
These "philosophers" along with, perhaps, the behaviourism-derived
