The Transhumanist FAQ updated 2005 - ExI
Extropy Institute sees enormous potential in advanced decision making and strategic thinking, coupled with emerging sciences and technologies, to quicken humanity's resolution of these fundamental problems. We aim to gradually but firmly change the rules of the game of progress and caution.
In pursuit of our mission, Extropy Institute assembles individuals from diverse domains of expertise. We gather these ambitious, daring minds to combine creative and executive approaches to expose the fundamental roots of our problems. We see this advanced, multi-faceted solution-seeking as the best way to create a radically better future.
We need not remain slaves to our cultural and evolutionary history.
For centuries, cultures around the world saw human slavery as part of
the natural order, until they were shown irrefutably otherwise. Likewise
today, many of us passively accept or stridently defend the
inevitability of human stupidity, malice, conflict, aging, and death. We
invite you to participate in our mission to connect and cultivate the
ingenious and intrepid shapers of the future.
WHY DO WE NEED THESE SOLUTIONS?
Human ingenuity has created many institutions and technologies to address these problems. Yet we still have to address our human nature that cause us to fear new technologies. The ever-changing world of the future brings us both anxiety and hope. New technologies that can cure diseases and improve the human condition are always looked on with suspicion and fear when they first arrive. We need to carefully evaluate and use new technologies for their usefulness and not reject them too quickly because they are new and different.
