The video containing 73 minutes of excerpts from the Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum at the Nevada State Legislature has been released at www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOHA5Z6Z3O4.

The Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum at the Nevada Legislature on May 15, 2019, marked a milestone for the U.S. Transhumanist Party and the Nevada Transhumanist Party. This was the first time that an official transhumanist event was held within the halls of a State Legislature, in one of the busiest areas of the building, within sight of the rooms where legislative committees met. The presenters were approached by tens of individuals – a few legislators and many lobbyists and staff members. The reaction was predominantly either positive or at least curious; there was no hostility and only mild disagreement from a few individuals. Generally, the outlook within the Legislative Building seems to be in favor of individual autonomy to pursue truly voluntary microchip implants. The testimony of Anastasia Synn at the Senate Judiciary Committee on April 26, 2019, in opposition to Assembly Bill 226 - www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXGessk5c24 - is one of the most memorable episodes of the 2019 Legislative Session for many who heard it. It has certainly affected the outcome for Assembly Bill 226, which was subsequently further amended to restore the original scope of the bill and only apply the prohibition to coercive microchip implants, while specifically exempting microchip implants voluntarily received by an individual from the prohibition. The scope of the prohibition was also narrowed by removing the reference to “any other person” and applying the prohibition to an enumerated list of entities who may not require others to be microchipped: state officers and employees, employers as a condition of employment, and persons in the business of insurance or bail. These changes alleviated the vast majority of the concerns within the transhumanist and cyborg communities about Assembly Bill 226.

This Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum comes at the beginning of an era of transhumanist political engagement with policymakers and those who advise them. It was widely accepted by the visitors to the demonstration tables that technological advances are accelerating, and that policy decisions regarding technology should only be made with adequate knowledge about the technology itself – working on the basis of facts and not fears or misconceptions that arise from popular culture and dystopian fiction. Ryan Starr shared his expertise on the workings and limitations of both NFC/RFID microchips and GPS technology and who explained that cell phones are already far more trackable than microchips ever could be (based on their technical specifications and how those specifications could potentially be improved in the future). U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II introduced visitors to the world of transhumanist literature by bringing books for display – including writings by Aubrey de Grey, Bill Andrews, Ray Kurzweil, Jose Cordeiro, Ben Goertzel, Phil Bowermaster, and Mr. Stolyarov's own book “Death is Wrong” in five languages. It appears that there is more sympathy for transhumanism within contemporary political circles than might appear at first glance; it is often transhumanists themselves who overestimate the negativity of the reaction they expect to receive. But nobody picketed the event or even called the presenters names; transhumanist ideas, expressed in a civil and engaging way – with an emphasis on practical applications that are here today or due to arrive in the near future – will be taken seriously when there is an opening to articulate them.

Update from Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party:

The Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum at the Nevada Legislature on May 15, 2019, marked a milestone for the U.S. Transhumanist Party and the Nevada Transhumanist Party. This was the first time that an official transhumanist event was held within the halls of a State Legislature, in one of the busiest areas of the building, within sight of the rooms where legislative committees met. We were approached by tens of individuals – a few legislators and many lobbyists and staff members. The reaction was predominantly either positive or at least curious; we received no hostility and only mild disagreement from a few individuals. Generally, the outlook within the Legislative Building seems to be in favor of individual autonomy to pursue truly voluntary microchip implants. The testimony of Anastasia Synn at the Senate Judiciary Committee on April 26, 2019, in opposition to Assembly Bill 226, is one of the most memorable episodes of the 2019 Legislative Session for many who heard it. It has certainly affected the likely outcome for this bill, which is scheduled for a Senate Judiciary Committee Work Session the next morning, on May 16, 2019. At the Work Session, if the bill advances at all, there is expected to be an amendment which would restore the original scope of the bill and only apply the prohibition to coercive microchip implants, while specifically exempting microchip implants voluntarily received by an individual from the prohibition. The scope of the prohibition would also be narrowed by removing the reference to “any other person” and applying the prohibition to an enumerated list of entities who may not require others to be microchipped: state officers and employees, employers as a condition of employment, and persons in the business of insurance or bail. If such an amendment is indeed adopted, it would alleviate the vast majority of our concerns about Assembly Bill 226.

This Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum comes at the beginning of an era of transhumanist political engagement with policymakers and those who advise them. It was widely accepted by the visitors to our tables that technological advances are accelerating, and that policy decisions regarding technology should only be made with adequate knowledge about the technology itself – working on the basis of facts and not fears or misconceptions that arise from popular culture and dystopian fiction. This is one reason why we were pleased to have Ryan Starr, who shared his expertise on the workings and limitations of both NFC/RFID microchips and GPS technology and who explained that cell phones are already far more trackable than microchips ever could be (based on their technical specifications and how those specifications could potentially be improved in the future). I was also glad to be able to introduce visitors to the world of transhumanist literature by bringing some of my home library of books for display – including writings by Aubrey de Grey, Bill Andrews, Ray Kurzweil, Jose Cordeiro, Ben Goertzel, Phil Bowermaster, and myself. Having “Death is Wrong” in five languages made an impression on multiple visitors, and the book is now in the hands of several prominent individuals, including Senator Melanie Scheible. One Legislature staff member came back to the Transhumanist Party table after reading the book (several hours after obtaining it) to tell me how impressed she was with it – offering high praise for the writing and the ideas therein; she will be sharing it with her college-aged grandchildren. This made my day. More generally, it is my impression that there is more sympathy for transhumanism within contemporary political circles than might appear at first glance; it is often transhumanists themselves who overestimate the negativity of the reaction they expect to receive. But nobody picketed us or even called us names; transhumanist ideas, expressed in a civil and engaging way – with an emphasis on practical applications that are here today or due to arrive in the near future – will be taken seriously when there is an opening to articulate them.

I did record a decent amount of video and audio footage. It will take some time to compile it into a single video showing some of the highlights of this event, but expect such a video in approximately a week's time.

This promises to be the first event of its kind – a great opportunity for advocates of emerging technologies to communicate with legislators, lobbyists, media, and the general public, and educate them about transhumanism and its technological dimensions while also dispelling common fears and myths.

The Cyborg and Transhumanist Forum will be held from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 15.

Address:
Nevada State Legislature Building
401 S Carson St, Carson City, NV 89701
Second Floor Atrium (See the Second Floor Map at www.leg.state.nv.us/General/AboutLeg/Maps/Legislative_Building_2nd_Floor.pdf)

This event was organized at the invitation of Senator Melanie Scheible, who was impressed with the testimony of magician Anastasia Synn in opposition to Assembly Bill 226: www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXGessk5c24

Most of the event will be in a conversational format as participants will interact with visitors and answer their questions.

If you could either travel to Carson City, Nevada, on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, or share this event with other transhumanists and life-extensionists who you think might be able to do so, it would be greatly appreciated. Even if you cannot attend yourself, you can help by spreading information about this event to others who might be in a position to attend – especially if they live in Northern Nevada or Northern California (but we welcome others who would have to travel farther!).

We need more transhumanists in attendance at this event! Please send an e mail to gennadystolyarovii@gmail.com if you wish to participate as one of the speakers educating people about transhumanism and emerging technologies. The more representation we have, the better! No matter what your areas of expertise or what flavor of transhumanism you espouse – whether you seek to pursue biological life extension, mechanical/electronic augmentations, policy reforms, or all of the above – your involvement and perspectives will be welcome. This is a unique opportunity for us to access policymakers and render them aware of the imperative of protecting the rights of technological innovators and creating an environment conducive to an acceleration of beneficial technological progress.

Transhumanist activism takes center stage at the Nevada Legislature: Magician and transhumanist Anastasia Synn testified on April 26, 2019, before the Nevada Senate Judiciary Committee in opposition to Nevada Assembly Bill 226 (AB 226). AB 226 would prohibit most implantation of NFC/RFID microchips, including voluntary programs for such implantation.

Ms. Synn demonstrated a variety of microchip technologies and their beneficial uses, as well as the difficulties in using voluntary implants to actually infringe on an individual's privacy. Watch her testimony here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXGessk5c24

The U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party (USTP) initially raised awareness about AB 226 and its detrimental impacts in March 2019, via this article by R. Nicholas Starr: transhumanist-party.org/2019/03/14/bait-and-switch-on-nevada-ab226/

The USTP, through Legislative Director Justin Waters, submitted a letter in opposition to AB 226 - tinyurl.com/y6q4em8y - and encouraged others to submit public comments on the bill at the Nevada Legislature website: www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/80th2019/

Anastasia Synn answered the USTP's call for vocal, articulate opposition to AB 226 and testified in person at the Senate Judiciary Committee in a manner that greatly impressed the Legislators and opened them to a new world of technology.

The USTP encourages our members to continue to express their concerns on AB 226 by writing the Senate Judiciary Committee at www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/80th2019/Committee/222/Overview and Assemblyman Richard "Skip" Daly, the sponsor of AB 226, at www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Legislator/A/Assembly/80th2019/31.

Transhumanist legislative activism has made a difference; let us work to enable it to continue to do so.

U.S. Transhumanist Party

Excellent work by Justin Waters, the Legislative Director of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party in writing and sending this letter to the Nevada Senate Judiciary Committee, in opposition to Assembly Bill 226 (AB226), which is scheduled to be heard this Friday, April 26, 2019, at 8 a.m.

AB226 had been amended with the following text (after technical drafting by the Legislative Counsel Bureau):
www.leg.state.nv.us/Session/80th2019/Bills/Amendments/A_AB226_46.pdf

Unfortunately, the revised amended bill - www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/80th2019/Bill/6394/Text - is not as innocuous as we hoped the conceptual amendment would be when it passed out of the Assembly Judiciary Committee. In particular, the definition of “Microchip” no longer has the qualifier of being intended to serve as an identification marker and instead refers to a device “that is passively or actively capable of transmitting personal information to another device using radio frequency technology.” Without the reference to the intent to be used as an identification marker, the scope of prohibited devices unfortunately could increase significantly.

We encourage our members to express their concerns.

Here is the link to the contact information for the committee:
www.leg.state.nv.us/App/NELIS/REL/80th2019/Committee/222/Overview

Also, public comments on the bill can still be made at the Nevada Legislature website:
www.leg.state.nv.us/App/Opinions/80th2019/

Existing comments can be viewed at www.leg.state.nv.us/AppCF/Opinion/80th2019/vwComments.cfm by typing in “AB226” as the bill name.

We also encourage those of our members who can make it in person to either Carson City or Las Vegas to testify in opposition to AB226 this Friday morning.

And if you are not yet a member of the USTP, join us for free, given the importance of legislative activism efforts such as this: transhumanist-party.org/membership/.

ANNOUNCEMENT OF OPEN OFFICER POSITIONS: The U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party has four volunteer Officer openings. We expect 2019 to be a pivotal year for the USTP, but we need additional committed volunteers to implement the kinds of projects that will advance the transhumanist movement’s political impact to the next level.

To apply, please e-mail Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II at gennadystolyarovii@gmail.com. Specify the position(s) you are applying for, and provide a statement of your qualifications and the reasons for your interest in any given position. Please feel free to provide supporting materials, such as links to past relevant work.

Opening for Secretary: The position of Secretary is responsible for transportation and logistics associated with USTP events, as well as miscellaneous tasks, as may be requested by the Chairman. If the applicant resides in Nevada, the applicant will also have an option to simultaneously become the Secretary of the Nevada Transhumanist Party, which may involve making occasional filings of documentation in person with the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office in Carson City. It is furthermore encouraged for the Secretary, like all the other Officers, to spread awareness of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party on social media and in person, to encourage new members to join, and to source content for the USTP website. Basic web editing skills, using platforms such as WordPress, are desirable but would also be taught to an otherwise qualified applicant. The specific expectations of the Secretary position are flexible, evolving, and may be custom-tailored to the strengths and skill sets of the applicant. However, to qualify for the position, it is absolutely essential for the applicant to be a person of consistent, reliable, trustworthy character, with a strong work ethic, communication skills, and the ability to follow through on commitments.

NOTE: The Secretary is not intended to be a second-in-command. By design, the USTP has no hierarchy of Officers; rather, all titles other than Chairman are horizontal and co-equal.

***

Opening for Director of Publication: The Director of Publication would source content from Allied Organizations and publish it regularly on the U.S. Transhumanist Party website pursuant to ongoing understandings with those organizations. We wish to develop our website into a hub for information regarding cutting-edge research, projects, and activism opportunities. The Director of Publication would be responsible for keeping up with what our Allied Organizations release and republishing materials where we have a right to do so and in a manner that aligns with our Platform and objectives. This would also be an opportunity for the Director of Publication to write and publish his or her own content with transhumanist and/or life-extensionist themes.

***

Opening for Legislative Director: The Legislative Director would be responsible for implementing the Legislative Action Framework of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party, as described in the following article: transhumanist-party.org/2019/03/17/legislative-action-framework/. The Legislative Director would recruit and coordinate with volunteer Issue Analysts to regularly track pending legislation that affects the issues and principles expressed in the U.S. Transhumanist Party Platform, the Transhumanist Bill of Rights, Version 3.0, and the Core Ideals of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party.

The Legislative Director would ideally have a background in law/policy making. It would be the responsibility of the Legislative Director to inform the Chairman of all relevant legislation on state and federal levels as provided by analysts or through personal observation. It would also be the Legislative Director’s responsibility to identify national policy trends and make suggestions for yearly priorities. The Legislative Director should, when necessary, reach out to our expert Advisors as listed on the USTP Advisors page.

***

Opening for Campaign Director: The Campaign Director’s primary role would be to interface with candidates seeking the endorsement of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party during the 2019 Presidential Primary and the 2020 Election Season. This would include facilitating discussions and debates among candidates, assisting with outreach to the general public, and communicating the USTP’s principles and expectations to candidates who seek the USTP’s endorsement.

This liaison role is not limited to potential Presidential candidates and would extend to candidates for other federal, state, and local offices. The Campaign Director would also periodically search for and identify independent and/or nonpartisan candidates whose platforms and priorities sufficiently align with the U.S. Transhumanist Party Platform that an endorsement by the USTP might be possible. For candidates who are ultimately endorsed by the USTP, the Campaign Director will assist with spreading those candidates’ messages and ideas via social media and other channels of communication.

The U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party has achieved its first legislative victory. We previously issued an alert about Nevada Assembly Bill 226, which originally was written only to prohibit compulsory microchip implants, but whose sponsor, Assemblyman Daly, proposed an amendment to also prohibit all voluntary programs for the implantation of a microchip. This concerned us greatly, as it would have essentially prohibited both medical implants with electronic components, as well as implants pursued for reasons of esthetics, self-expression, and functional improvement. Although we learned of the proposed amendment only two days before today's Work Session at the Assembly Judiciary Committee, the dedicated grassroots activists among our membership sprang into action. USTP activists quickly published an article, circulated tens of posts via social media, informed prominent transhumanists via e-mail, submitted comments on the Nevada Legislature and to the Assembly Judiciary Committee, and reached out to Legislators. We greatly appreciate that Assemblyman Richard "Skip" Daly took our concerns into account and proposed Subsection 3 within his amendment (attached), which defines "microchip implant" in quite a narrow manner, addressing his concerns about potential future institutional pressure to use implanted identification markers, while exempting from the bill's scope any medical devices, artistic implants, or implants pursued for reasons of personal expression. This amendment was incorporated into AB226 at the Assembly Judiciary Committee Work Session on March 15, 2019. The U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party believes that AB226, as amended, is no longer a cause for significant concern. While we are not thrilled about any restrictions on voluntary, peaceful activity, we believe that medical innovators, patients, artists, biohackers, grinders, cyborgs, fitness enthusiasts, and many other users of functional implantable technologies will not be at risk from this bill. Thank you to the transhumanist community for mobilizing so effectively to achieve this victory!

This, my friends, is why we need a Transhumanist Party. Join us for free: transhumanist-party.org/membership

Tom Ross, the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party’s Director of Media Production has done outstanding work to catalyze our #IAmTranshuman image and video campaign.

Here is what Tom has to say about what got him involved in the USTP and motivated to help in such a major way: “Transhuman is the concept of an intermediary form between human and posthuman with powers and abilities beyond those of standard humans. Whether improved intelligence, awareness, strength, or durability. ‘Trans’ means ‘Beyond’, and this evolution is inevitable. To debate whether or not this is a good thing is to delay discussion about policies that may mitigate risk to our species. The United States Transhumanist Party is the formal political body addressing these issues now by putting science, health, and technology at the forefront of American politics. I'm not Transhuman because I want to live forever. In fact, I'm not sure that's a good thing for the evolution of consciousness, but this is where we can have those conversations that will forge policies for this next level world.”

You can participate in the #IAmTranshuman campaign by submitting still images or video recordings of one minute or less (15 seconds or less for Instagram stories, one minute or less for Instagram-compatible videos). Use the hashtag #IAmTranshuman, and let us know if you would like your video included in a subsequent compilation!

The first video compilation of the #IAmTranshuman campaign has been produced!

See it on YouTube - www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZzYw7WT9pVE – and on Vimeo - vimeo.com/322157523.

Tom Ross, the Director of Media Production for the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party – has skillfully juxtaposed the concise, powerful remarks of leading transhumanist thinkers from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, who each illustrate in their own ways how the Transhuman Era has arrived.

The #IAmTranshuman campaign helps illustrate how emerging technologies and the accompanying shifts in thinking are already transforming everyday life.

- B.J. Murphy, Director of Social Media, U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party

Eloquent and inspiring words from B.J. Murphy, the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party's Director of Social Media:

***

Ever since our early ancestors discovered and used fire to overcome obstacles which stood before them, we've been on the warpath against the dictatorship of nature itself and all of its cruelty. We've stood toe-to-toe with the grim reaper time and again, and with each time, we've come out victorious.

The journey which lies before us today is no different. With the help of modern science and technology, we're now in the fight for our lives, whether it's conquering nature in the face of climate change, conquering space in the face of asteroid impacts, or conquering aging in the face of our own mortality.

And with this being the battle cry of the U.S. Transhumanist Party, that is why #IAmTranshuman.

Even eyeglasses are a transhuman enhancement. The sight of those with poor vision is made normal, enabling them to function and achieve in ways that would have been impossible during Antiquity or most of the Middle Ages. The invention of eyeglasses in 1290 contributed to the subsequent flourishing of written and artistic culture and certainly rendered it easier for Western societies to experience the Renaissance and the Enlightenment.

Practically all humans are used to this technological enhancement simply because it is relatively old and has been around for many generations. Someday – hopefully soon – the emerging biological and mechanical enhancements that are on the cusp of further expanding human capabilities, will also be accepted by virtually all of society without a second thought. The difference between eyeglasses and laser eye surgery is already more immense than the difference between laser eye surgery and the bionic eyes that will be able to restore sight to the blind. The U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party encourages the entire world to overcome the fear of the unfamiliar and recognize that the technological enhancements of the coming decades will one day be seen as eyeglasses are today.

Thank you to Tom Ross for another great installment in the #IAmTranshuman campaign.

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

The Transhumanist Party builds the future. I, too, strive to build a piece of the future through my personal efforts. I know well that the technology at my disposal has greatly extended my reach and impact, compared to what would have been possible even two decades ago. In writing, publishing, art, music, and now politics, technology has made all the difference for me. By grace of technology, I am Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman of the United States Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party, and #IAmTranshuman.
