One frequently encounters the identification of human creativity and inventiveness as driving forces for progress in technology and society. In part, this identification is correct: it is through the human creative faculty―the ability to bring forth new combinations of matter and new ideas―that improvements to the human condition arise. But while creation is a necessary component to progress, it is not a sufficient component. The other required component of progress is maintenance.

This is a video version of U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II’s 2010 essay, “Progress: Creation and Maintenance”.

Technological evolution is the change in the machines, infrastructure, and methods of communication used by human beings. U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II explains the benefits of technological evolution as contrasted with biological and societal evolution. He discusses the possibilities of immense improvement in human well-being as a result of the convergence of the next generation of emerging technologies.

From Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman of the U.S. Transhumanist Party:

One of the highly problematic aspects of contemporary Western societies is the widespread aversion to individuals having “unstructured time” – for which no conventions or prescribed routines dictate how it will be spent. This is a mistaken distaste and, indeed, a dangerous one. Unstructured time is not only the source of human progress; it is also essential for people to develop their own individualities and flourish as unique human beings.

Watch my video, “Unstructured Leisure and Progress”, here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX8OKqBebhE

This is the video version of an essay of mine, “Unstructured Leisure and Progress”, originally published on May 7, 2010, on The Rational Argumentator - rationalargumentator.com/issue247/unstructuredleisure.html - and republished in Issue No. 5 of Immortalists Magazine in May 2020 - www.flipsnack.com/BDEAACF6AED/im-may-jun-draft/full-view.html. This essay was also used as part of the course material prepared for the Tekedia Institute Mini-MBA Program for students in Nigeria, as part of the unit on Exponential Technologies and the Singularity - www.tekedia.com/mini-mba-faculty-for-exponential-technologies-and-singularity/.

The concept of unstructured leisure is vitally important especially during the time of a pandemic which has created chronic preoccupation with immediate pressures to an unprecedented extent. How will our civilization reclaim the unstructured leisure time so vital to continued progress? We start by rediscovering the value of unstructured leisure.

The Nevada Secretary of State’s Office seems to have upgraded its operations and issues paper certificates to minor political parties now. The Nevada Transhumanist Party has been officially registered since August 31, 2015, and now we have this Certificate of Minor Party Organization that recognizes our most recent filing and current status. Also, note the bristlecone pines depicted near the State of Nevada seal. These are the longest-living individual (non-clonal) trees in the world, and it is fitting that the Nevada Transhumanist Party would have them on its certificate.

Members of the U.S. Transhumanist Party have been e-mailed their ballots for our Constitutional Reform Vote #2. Official ballot options can be viewed here: transhumanist-party.org/2020/12/23/constitutional-vote-2-ballot-options/

A total of 15 questions are currently under consideration. The 7-day electronic voting period will occur until 12:01 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time on December 30, 2020.

These important reform provisions to the U.S. Transhumanist Party Constitution were developed as a result of the ideas discussed at the USTP Reform Summit of November 28-29, 2020.

The purpose of these reforms is to keep troublemakers out of positions of prominence (Officer or candidate roles), establish eligibility criteria for Officers and candidates, improve internal USTP governance, revise obsolete information, and authorize the formation of a non-political affiliate organization or organizations in the future to enable a broader reach in different venues.

If you are a member of the USTP, please vote and encourage other USTP members to vote! Contact us if you did not receive the e-mail with your link to vote or if you are having any technical issues casting your ballot. We encourage member participation in this USTP vote as in all others.

On Friday, December 4, 2020, at 1 p.m. Pacific Time, attendees at the Biohackers Assemble Virtual Conference will be able to watch a presentation by U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II, entitled, “How Transhumanists Prevented the Ban on Microchip Implants in Nevada”. This presentation will focus on the successful effort by the U.S. Transhumanist Party and Nevada Transhumanist Party to achieve amendments to Nevada Assembly Bill 226 in May 2019. The sponsor of Assembly Bill 226 had sought for the bill to prohibit even voluntary microchip implants, but a determined effort spreadheaded by transhumanists prevented this from occurring.

For more information, see the Biohackers Assemble conference page: www.biohackersassemble.com/schedule/

Feel free to pose any questions either here or at the conference (if you are registered for it), and the accumulated questions will be answered at a later time.

In this video segment, Edward Hudgins, Ph.D., founder of the Human Achievement Alliance, answers a question from Dan Elton, Ph.D., Director of Scholarship for the U.S. Transhumanist Party, regarding encouragement of innovation in biotechnology and genetic engineering by appealing to considerations of national competitiveness: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LW1sXpMJPaE

This conversation delved into technology policy in China and Japan and both positive and negative aspects of historical and contemporary Chinese policies, as well as the advantages of the Japanese regulatory model for medicines, which allows medicines that have passed safety testing to be provided to the patient population simultaneous with the gathering of data regarding efficacy.

This conversation transpired during the U.S. Transhumanist Party Virtual Enlightenment Salon with Dr. Edward Hudgins on November 15, 2020, where Dr. Hudgins discussed the Human Achievement Alliance and his thoughts on the implications of the 2020 elections for American politics in general and transhumanist politics in particular.
