TransLaws
Singularity or Bust
Conclusions about TransLaws
Is there a need for government
intervention towards transhumanism?
We need laws and ethics, mutual agreement?
Is transhumanism and singularity something
that if controlled by government, other
regions or countries with more allowance
towards transhumanism will bypass those
governments with more restrictions?
Immortality and Law
Life extension, population control
Some bioethics say that 80 years is a good
average lifespan that we shouldn't
exceed.
Those who get immortality to leave Earth
as soon as possible, space exploration.
What about those who opt-out?
Final Words
Future is highly unpredictable.
Singularity is the point where things get
so unpredictable that only superior
intelligence can evaluate all attributes
related to human affairs, environment and
life.
Thank you for attending this presentation
and I wish everyone will reach this climax
point in our history that we entitle, the
Singularity.
Have a nice
life! All the best,
