Transhumanist Resources

'What is a human being, then?'
'A seed.'
'A... seed?'
'An acorn that is unafraid to destroy itself in growing into a tree'

Transhumanism is a philosophy that humanity can, and should, strive to higher levels, both physically, mentally and socially. It encourages research into such areas as life extension, cryonics, nanotechnology, physical and mental enhancements, uploading human consciousness into computers and megascale engineering.

The texts below are collected from many sources, mainly the Extropian mailing list, alt.memetics, sci.cryonics and sci.nanotech. I will gladly accept pointers to more transhumanist resources on the Net and comments, contributions and other input.
