We’ve put together the survey on transhumanism strategy to reveal the inner discussion inside the transhumanist movement. Our goal is to inspire the people to act.
We believe the greatest sin in our field is wishful thinking. It’s when a person is saying that it would be good to do something, like for instance, to shoot a viral video, but at the same time this person is not doing anything. His or hers advice has to be implemented in real life somehow on its own.
We also tried to get away from discussing whether it’s going to be boring to live, what about overpopulation, and whether we should argue with nature or not. We can’t be talking about this nonsense forever.
We will take the liberty of commenting on the obtained results from 223 respondents and share our own opinion on the proposed questions.
58% think a global movement is needed. I suppose we agree with it, but it’s not necessary that right now there have to be a lot of people. It is more important that the people understand the situation and the goals of transhumanism and are ready to act.
20% believe that the cure for aging can only be created as a non-profit project, and 80% think not necessarily. Our position is that only a non-profit initiative can achieve significant deceleration of aging. We’ve witnessed tens of commercial projects in life extension and every time the idea to earn money wins over the idea of living longer. Radical life extension idea is extremely complicated and burdening it with making money overcomplicates everything.
