This module is an introduction to Transhumanism, a global movement of people who want to transcend the limitations of our human biology using science and technology.
It will cover some of the latest breakthroughs that will pave the way for humanity to extend the healthy human lifespan, to merge with artificial intelligence, and to expand our wellbeing through abundance.
It will emphasise why now the most important time is in human history to shape the future of our species through the Transhumanist movement – why we need to embrace it, accelerate it in a positive direction for society, and make the technologies available for everyone.
