World Transhumanist Association

You need to become a member of the World Transhumanist Association today. Then, contribute to the cause and your donation will earn matching dollars from two sponsoring organizations.

In other words, for every dollar you contribute in support, it will be matched dollar for dollar.

I have had the pleasure of meeting the WTA's Executive Director, James Clement, and enjoyed a multi-hour conversation with him in my office. Enthusiasm, honesty and integrity are words that come to mind when describing my impressions of him and the WTA.

What is Transhumanism?

"(1) The intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally improving the human condition through applied reason, especially by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate aging and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities.

(2) The study of the ramifications, promises, and potential dangers of technologies that will enable us to overcome fundamental human limitations, and the related study of the ethical matters involved in developing and using such technologies. "

I made my contribution today on behalf of Relentless Improvement. Please join with me and make your show of support right now?
