Gennady Stolyarov II, Randal Koene, and Aubrey de Grey at RAAD Fest


This image comes from RAAD Fest in San Diego, CA, and was taken on August 5, 2016, when Mr. Stolyarov had the opportunity for a brief conversation with Dr. Aubrey de Grey of SENS Research Foundation (right) – one of the most ambitious and scientifically rigorous advocates of reversing the damage of biological aging – and neuroscientist Dr. Randal Koene (center), who is working on achieving whole-brain emulation.

A bit of good news from Dr. de Grey: He observes that public opinion is gradually coming around to greater acceptance and receptiveness toward rejuvenation biotechnology, the effort to combat and reverse the damage of aging through a scientific, engineering-oriented approach – a project that, if successful, would imply greatly extended lifespans for those who can live long enough to attain longevity escape velocity.

Gennady Stolyarov II and Wendy Stolyarov with Dr. Bill Andrews of Sierra Sciences


On August 21, 2016, Wendy D. Stolyarov and Gennady Stolyarov II met with Dr. Bill Andrews of Sierra Sciences – world-famous telomere researcher and life-extension advocate – for a morning run around the Virginia Lake in Reno, hosted by Molly Sheridan of Desert Sky Adventures. One could call it RUNNING FROM DEATH.

Gennady Stolyarov II and Libertarian Candidate David Colborne in Reno, Nevada


On June 14, 2016, Nevada Transhumanist Party representatives attended a gathering for David Colborne, Libertarian Party candidate for State Senate District 15 in Reno, Nevada. David Colborne offers a promising combination of pro-liberty views: support for free-market capitalism, opposition to crony capitalism, and support for removing barriers to innovation and progress. Moreover, it was excellent to hear David endorse the core life-extensionist aim of transhumanism, as he said that he would certainly be happy to live forever.   The event was a good opportunity to discuss complementarities between libertarianism and transhumanism and also to encounter various flavors of libertarians and converse on issues ranging from economic freedom and international trade to the need to overcome the two-party dichotomy in the US electoral system. 

Gennady Stolyarov II and Wendy Stolyarov with Allan Lichtman at the University of Nevada, Reno


On April 26, 2016, the Nevada Transhumanist Party conducted some successful outreach at the University of Nevada, Reno. Wendy D. Stolyarov, Secretary-Treasurer, and Gennady Stolyarov II, Chief Executive, attended the presentation by Professor Allan Lichtman on his empirical model for predicting the winners of US Presidential elections (the “thirteen keys to the Presidency”). During the reception, representatives of the Nevada Transhumanist Party were able to network with Professor Lichtman and other attendees, discuss the basic ideas of transhumanism (for which Professor Lichtman expressed support when they were framed as a techno-optimistic message with specific examples of emerging technologies), mention the activism of Zoltan Istvan, address the electoral prospects of third parties, and raise questions regarding the distinction between correlation and causation in models that study electoral dynamics. Overall, the response has been positive. Some attendees initially did not know what transhumanism was, but most were either sympathetic or at least neutral once it was explained.
