The instrument collection is a collection of non-powered scientific instruments owned by the Foundation and on load to the Transhuman House. Many of these are ones that were purchased as they relate to books in the Foundation library and includes things like Astrolabes, Abacus, Sextants, Slide Rules and the like. Many of there are brass and collector items but all are working versions.
The Foundations Library Project is about building a library of knowledge that is resilient enough to last for centuries. The purpose of such an archive is to help ensure a post human or trans-human civilization based on ours, for us or our children or even our machines. With the Archive, we work towards the long term success of intelligence in the universe. It is the single most important thing we can do to improve the likely hood of achieving a post human intelligence, if not from this civilization then maybe for the next. This is the key to why the Foundation is so committed to the creation of the library and archive.
(29 APR 20-17) – A soft launch of the Transhuman House in Provo Utah with guest including local transhumanists and others meet at the home. A discussion was hosted on the purpose and goals of the House, local transhuman activities and more was discussed as well as having Soylent 1.7 and 1.8 available to try. Seems the 1.7 uniformly tastes better according to attendees. While the site is not ready this was really the first local event around the Transhuman House including discussions about H+, MTA, The Foundation, Hall Labs and other groups organizations that the Transhuman House might get involved with.
