Discover the new drugs, machines and techniques that are extending the horizon of human potential! Join us for a live, interactive 5-week course, “Living Better Through Technology,” with host Ken “R.U. Sirius” Goffman and special guests. This 5-session course begins June 24th. There is a special free introductory session on June 17th.
Humanity is on the cusp of an extraordinary leap. New and emerging technologies promise an unprecedented wave of human self-enhancement. Advances in the areas of longevity, creativity, and biology will enable you to have a quality of experience that previous generations barely conceived possible.
- Minimizing Aging: the mechanisms that control biological aging are being identified, and techniques for reversing the effects of aging will become widely available.
- Intelligence Increase: breakthroughs in brain science are revealing how innovative combinations of foods, nutrients, exercises, and implants will enable extraordinary feats of memory, calculation and creativity.
- Maximizing Health: research into optimum states of wellbeing are revealing the foundational elements of physical and mental health, giving us the tools to improve ourselves in a wide variety of ways.
The advances are significant, and popular media is filled with stories about the latest visionary claims. But how do you separate the hype from solid science? Are there techniques mature enough for you to begin using safely today?
Few people are as familiar with this futurist terrain as R.U. Sirius (otherwise known as Ken Goffman). He first encountered many of these transhumanist technologies during his years as editorial director of the legendary magazine Mondo 2000, in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It was through Mondo 2000 that much of the human self-enhancement field was first introduced to the public. He has continued to stay abreast of developments in the field as a writer, as editor of H+ magazine, and as co-author of the new book, Transcendence: The Disinformation Encyclopedia of Transhumanism and the Singularity. R.U. has a much-deserved reputation for not only identifying emerging trends in their early stages, but also for distinguishing between the grounded technologies, with legitimate application and potential, and overly speculative claims.
For this unique live, interactive video course, R.U. has gathered some of the leading experts in the future of the body.
- Steven Kotler – Award-winning journalist, bestselling co-author of Abundance, and cofounder and director of research for the Flow Genome Project.
- Dr Terry Grossman, MD – Co-author with Ray Kurzweil of two books on maximizing health and longevity, and founder and medical director of the Grossman Wellness Center in Denver, Colorado
- Dr Andrew Hill – Lead Neuroscientist at TruBrain, a company whose mission is to “optimize your productivity and efficiency without relying on excess caffeine or prescription medication” through smart drinks and education
- Tim Cannon – Co-founder and spokesman for Grindhouse Wetware, a biotechnology startup company that creates technology to augment human capabilities
- Jay Cornell – Co-writer of Transcendence: The Disinformation Encyclopedia of Transhumanism and the Singularity
- James L. Kent – Author of Psychedelic Information Theory: Shamanism in the Age of Reason
You will be part of the discussion, able to ask your questions on camera, just like a Skype call. If you happen to miss a live session, you can view a video recording at any time. These sessions will be filled with provocative information, clear instruction, and practical advice from teachers who are among the world’s leading experts in transhumanism and technologies associated with the Singularity.
Many of these technologies have long been in development, and only recently have matured to the point where they are available for use today. RU is the ideal person to lead you on an exploration of this cutting edge terrain. As editor of H+ magazine, he became immersed in what’s happening in human enhancement. It is now ready for prime time and is entering the mainstream. RU will help you understand which advances are real and which are empty vapor, which are practical and which are not.
In this course, you will:
- Learn which vitamins, nutrients and drugs are best suited to maximize your health and lifespan.
- Discover how the science of “flow” will enable you to maximize your creativity.
- Learn which nootropics, machines and exercises are best suited to enhancing your problem solving intelligence.
- Encounter fascinating techniques for extending all five of your senses.
- Explore how to get the most out of psychedelic experience, so it can enhance your awareness for a lifetime.
- Discover which technologies are viable today, and which are most likely to become available in the not-so-distant future.
R.U. and his guests will offer valuable knowledge about self-enhancement techniques that you can apply yourself, safely, today. You will come away with a deeper appreciation for the exciting innovations that are driving the transhumanist movement, and inspired by the ways that your own experience can be enhanced by these breakthroughs.
