One of our favorite projects at the Transhuman House is PlantSat1 – Growing a plant in space simulating Mars conditions. “PlantSat is a contribution to the ongoing human efforts of exploring, understanding and eventually colonizing Mars. Its goal is to study in low earth orbit the growth of a suitable plant, replicating the conditions that life will experience on Mars’ surface. These conditions include low gravity force and high solar radiation. Continue reading “PLANTSAT1 – Simulated Martian Environment”
An Altruistic Business, an institute, a museum of the future as we design it and a new home for the transhuman house… all of this is the part of the following ‘business’ plan.
One of our most exciting projects is for the Foundation Retreat (different than the Foundations Retreat they had recently at the Transhuman House) which would include a new version of the transhuman house. We did a VC Style pitch deck to explain the idea to the Foundation membership and to some people working on similar projects but wanted to share this idea with others. When we have enough funding we plan on creating this or executing on this one way or the other. Continue reading “Foundation Retreat VC Pitch Deck and Business Plan”
The reason for the Foundation Library at the ‘House’ in Utah is multi-faceted and given the nature of the importance, the Foundation places on libraries; a visit to the Foundation Facility would not be complete without a tour of the local libraries. Here are the most important ones you can visit or ‘see’. Continue reading “Touring the Libraries Around the House”
One of the great things we have been able to at the Transhuman House is the building of a Transhuman Art Collection. While some are prints a lot of it is original works of art. A lot of the work is also digital and I wanted to showcase some of my favorite bits of art and the artists. If you’d like your art showcased at the Transhuman House or contribute in any way reach out to us. Let’s start with one of my favorite artists Mr. Flox. Continue reading “The Transhumanist Art Collection at the Transhuman House”
We had another art piece acquired and put into the Transhuman House. A great oil relief called ‘Worlds Without End’ by the Artist Karl Hale. Karl is a local to the Transhuman House member of the MTA (Mormon Transhumanist Association). He is work is on display in a number of galleries and we are pleased to have this sort of Transcendent art showcased at the Transhuman House. Continue reading “Worlds Without End – Oil On Relief”
(Provo, UT) One of the Foundation members is launching a satellite or rather designing a satellite for launch in 2019. It’s a 3U Cube sat and the Foundationer is a PhD student in Botany. They set up a biome experiment at the transhuman house that contains a closed system that the satellite will carry and we set up a 1.5-hour cycle as it would experience on orbit with a remote camera so we can monitor it remotely. Sage (the PhD student Botanist) will be staying at the Transhuman House through the summer, working on various experiments related to Botany and Hydroponics.
In this special edition we are going on a tour of the Foundation’s ‘Transhuman House’,
set in the middle of the Rocky Mountains, let’s fly in and take a look…
One of the great things is that it’s an ongoing project, open to all transhumanists whether trying to get away or wanting a home for a transhumanist project or other help; Continue reading “On The Technocracy – Touring the Transhuman House, Sustainable Technologies and our Future”
The art collection has been growing with new digital art, paintings and prints and a large framed poster of cognitive biases of the human brain. Another local artist actually did a digital painting just for the transhuman house that is only digital, plus art for the Architect room and PostHuman Suite. A new digital frame was moved to the PostHuman Suite and we are working on an elevator archive system using IoT winches to hide away in the ceiling. Continue reading “Art and Science”
Probably one of the earliest arguably transhuman pieces of art is “The Apotheosis of Washington” painted on the inside of the US Capitol building dome. It is a traditional piece and arguably important historically. Recently, a print of this painting was donated to the Transhumanist Art Collection at the Transhuman House. Continue reading “The Apotheosis of Washington”
(Provo, Ut) Presenting educational material is one of the key purposes of the Transhuman House. Visitors can not only explore the Foundation Library and the Transhuman Collection or check out local research on the BioCell or on the AGI Laboratory but also see cybernetic implants, learn about VR in full immersion systems or check out the scientific instrument collection. You can even book a stay on Airbnb. Recently, a donation to the Transhuman House included an ‘Enigma 2’ device that is a simple encryption tool that can be used to teach and even in its existing form is reasonably strong. Given the critical nature of how blockchain and related encryption technologies affect our future, it’s important to learn the principals of encryption and this is a great visual tool you can learn that with.
Come check out the Transhuman House and schedule a tour today.
