(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.

In an effort to showcase high-end Art related to the future, or dystopian futures and related genres, we are showcasing at the Transhuman House art that is along those related lines. Currently, our Artist we are showcasing is a local Artist named Shane Flox, that works in a mixed oil on canvas medium and uses that as the basis for digital works. There are two large format oil paintings with multilayered symbolism on display and we included some of the digital art created from those paintings here. Continue reading “Dystopian Futurist Art At the Transhuman House.”
(Provo, UT) A recent donation to the Foundation Library and the Transhuman House is a copy of the Golden Record created for, and currently on, the Voyager Spacecraft rapidly speeding into interstellar space. The new framed addition to the Foundation library is a gold record with the symbology and data encoded on the same side and framed as part of a 40th anniversary of the launch of the nuclear powered Voyager spacecraft.

Our most recent upgrade to the Transhuman House is a new set of Smart IoT blinds from MySmartBlinds. Besides the obvious phone app and IoT tie in to the Transhuman House technology, MySmartBlinds are self-charging with solar strips, work with IoT hubs and Alexa and much more. Being able to time and manipulate how the windows transfer heat and passive solar energy into and out of the house helps in the AI-driven management of the Transhuman House. Continue reading “IoT Smart Blinds Installed”
One of the new displays that was set up at the new ‘Transhuman House 2.0’ is a South American Biotope. A “Biotope” is a complete ecosystem and in this case, it means no chemical filtration and replicates a bit of a real one. The object is to showcase closed ecosystems along with the aquaponics and hydroponics systems.
With the donation of a new 3 bedroom condo in Provo, the Transhuman House has moved to a new location that is bigger and better and, as we are setting up, we hope to open the first week of Dec. We also have a new Sponsor, ‘Metric.Media’, that has supplied a new 86 inch interactive touch wall panel you can see us installing as well as other interactive screens.
