Transhumanism is a way of thinking about the future that is based on the premise that the human species in its current form does not represent the end of our development but rather a comparatively early phase (by way of Quantum Theology)

If there were "no Internet," there would still be "transhumanism.” Why? Because transhumanism, transhumanists and even transhumans roamed the earth a decade prior to the Internet. What the Internet did do, however, is create a flora for memes to spread at a more rapid pace than through our earlier methods of university courses, telephone, television, snail mail, conferences, parties, and like gathering.
The television cable program "TransCentury UPdate" which was re-titled "Transhuman UPdate" aired to a viewing audience of 100,000 people in California and several thousand in Telluride, Colorado. This was the first major spreading of transhumanist memes.
Today we have more and more televised programs, mostly in the form of documentaries, that feature transhumanist ideas.
Thank goodness for the spoken word, the written word, and the digitized word!
Toward heightened knowledge!
