Chart Shows How Transhumanism Went Mainstream

Over At Accelerating Future, Michael Anissimov has used Google Trends to do a quick analysis of how many people searched on the term "transhumanism" over the past five years.

Finished reading it as well. Very good. Shall have to leave it alone for a while let a few comics build up.

I think my favourite comics include the line "God is powered by irony" and "10th Level Apologist Strength: Transubstantiation. Weakness: Radio-carbon Dating. and "Victor Hugo once got so mad he threw a baseball through a dog."

I also got a lot of the , philosophical, psychological and physics references. And had a plenty good time looking up the ones I didn't recognise.

My inner-atheist was pleased. :)

yes, i hear it has a style similar to that of Thus Spake Zaruthustra- for the obvious reasons. I'll have to get back to reading that at some point...

Indeed! I was enamored with the whole stand alone complex idea for the simple fact that there are elements of such a social mental state already present in society: The high proliferation of information- the fractal individualism that paradoxically leads to more group conformity, ect.

But at any rate i'm very happy that you liked it. It's a good critique of politics in general, so that's another plus. And the humanity is rather stripped in the movies, which were much more philosophically dense, with little social commentary. the third movie was really just a rehashing of the other two built around the themes of the show. Not that it wasn't very good, but...

Anyway, if you are a fan of anime, join the Anime group. Please help. There's only 8 of us lol.

Love that Anime! I wasn't so enamored with the "Stand Alone Complex" but I find a certain sympathy with the characters working through their humanity. Of course most of this is "Post Humanism" but just as valid as Trans Humanism. The former is unlikely to occur without the latter.

I've been a long time disciple, as it were, of Neitsche, so i ought to be able to fit in here nicely. Interestingly, doesn't transhumanism really realate the belief than man could become mortal gods- or even pass away from mortality altogether? I've just got to say also that anyone who is a fan of Ghost in the Shell is really a transhumanist at heart...

I find this rather interesting. Being in a wheel chair I like any idea that may lead o some form of walking or being in any way able to express or experience more.
