“Metabesity and Longevity: USA Special Case Study” is an 85-page open-access analytical report produced jointly by Aging Analytics Agency and Targeting Metabesity to examine the links between metabesity, Longevity and the USA’s current health shortfalls, including low health-adjusted life expectancy (“HALE”) and the large gap between HALE and life expectancy, despite its extremely high per-capita healthcare expenditures, and to chart policy recommendations to neutralize this vast health vs wealth deficit.

Link to Special Case Study: aginganalytics.com/longevity-usa/

As the issue of aging population intensifies, sick care will become increasingly expensive and ineffective. America needs to rapidly deploy a government-led shift from treatment to prevention, and from prevention to precision health, using deep diagnostics and prognostics in combination with biomarkers of aging, metabesity, health and intervention-effectiveness, to delay the onset of disease with as minimal intervention as possible, as early as possible. Seeking synergies between Longevity research, P4 (preventive, personalized, precision and participatory) medicine and Artificial Intelligence has the potential to enable rapid and widespread policy and infrastructural reforms for USA healthcare to quickly boost National Healthy Longevity, but only with sufficient government commitment.

The USA holds the greatest share of the multi-trillion dollar global Longevity economy and the majority share of global Longevity Industry companies and players. It also has one of the highest rates of healthcare expenditure. The USA has all the resources necessary to become a global leader in Longevity, Preventive Medicine and Precision Health, and of National Healthy Longevity, but lacks national prioritization by its federal government, and a strategy to unite the activities of its Longevity Industry, AI, and Preventive Medicine industry ecosystems to work in synergy, rather than in discoordination. The nation’s Longevity policy deficits are not a scientific problem, but rather a policy problem. And it is the specific forms of policy reform that could transform the USA’s current Longevity deficit into an asset, and help the nation leverage its many assets to become a global Longevity hub, that this special analytical case study seeks to identify.

This special analytical case-study was produced jointly as part of Aging Analytics Agency's partnership with the Targeting Metabesity conference series, and features contributions by a number of thought-leaders behind Targeting Metabesity 2019 including Thomas Seoh, Zan Fleming, Michael Zemel and several others. The report will be updated and extended following the close of the conference on October 16th, 2019, and will feature comprehensive coverage of the conference, summaries of key presentations and talks, major conclusions reached during panel discussions, and the main Longevity policy takeaways from the conference.

On October 6, 2019, the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party held a meeting in Las Vegas at RAAD Fest 2019, with approximately 45 members of the public in attendance. USTP Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II, Presidential Candidate Johannon Ben Zion, and Director of Publication Brent Reitze provided an overview of the recent 2019 Electronic Primary and the lessons learned from it and solicited ideas from the attendees about how to improve public recognition of transhumanism and arrange for activism with similar impact to Zoltan Istvan's 2016 Immortality Bus campaign. A vigorous but civil and thought-provoking discussion ensued for approximately 90 minutes.

As interest in the topic of Longevity continues to mount around the world, an increasing number of progressive countries and government bodies are beginning to solicit consultation on Longevity policy. In response to this growing megatrend, Aging Analytics Agency has increased its activities in this sphere, and during September submitted three proposals to national and international governance and policy-structuring organizations concerned with the issue of aging population and the opportunity of Healthy Longevity, including the UK All-Party Parliamentary Group for Longevity, the World Health Organization, and the UK House of Lords Science and Technology Committee.

Link to Longevity Policy Proposals and Submissions: aginganalytics.com/official-submissions/

Aging Analytics Agency continues to make Longevity Policy a priority across multiple fronts, including its activities as an Official Member Organization of the United Nations NGO Committee on Ageing, its support of the upcoming International Longevity Policy and Governance Summit organized by Longevity International UK at King’s College London on November 12th, and its upcoming "Global Longevity Governance: 50 Countries Big Data Comparative Analysis of Longevity Progressiveness” special case study.

USTP Presidential Primary Election Update: As of 6:00 p.m. on September 30, 2019, voting is now CLOSED. 312 valid ballots have been cast in total. This election has thankfully been free of major irregularities – no attempted voter fraud, no sock-puppet accounts, no waves of non-members trying to vote. The few duplicate votes that were discarded were unintentional. Furthermore, some members needed assistance with understanding the premise of the ranked-choice ballot and how to fill it out correctly. However, technical support was offered to any member who displayed signs of difficulties, without regard to how that member would vote.

Next will come the process of tabulating the results. Absolutely no interim results will be announced until tabulation is complete. Tabulation will be a labor-intensive process, and, accordingly, freedom from distraction during it will be essential. Please withhold all questions until the results have been released. This will also accelerate the release of the results.

Thank you to those U.S. Transhumanist Party members who voted. We had a most encouraging increase in turnout during the last 20 hours of the voting time window, and this gives me confidence that the results of this election will be representative of the views within the broader transhumanist movement.

USTP Presidential Primary Election Update: As of 6:40 p.m. Pacific Time on September 28, 2019, 236 valid votes have been cast.

Observations of member activity have led the USTP leadership to significantly re-evaluate the quorum. It is an unfortunate but confirmed fact that e-mail is no longer as effective a method of reaching people as it might have been in the past. With an open rate of 31.3% for our most successful mailing campaign, and with the active count of 1752 members eligible to vote (after deducting inactive and bounced e-mail addresses and unsubscriptions), the membership that has been engaged in this election in any manner is estimated to be approximately 1752*0.313 = 548. Half of 548 is 274, which is hereby the new quorum for concluding the election.

Therefore, 38 votes remain to be cast to reach the quorum. Another e-mail has been sent out to the members who have not yet voted to inform them of this. If you were planning to vote but have not yet done so, now is the time to cast your ballot. We expect that the quorum will be reached by the evening of Monday, September 30, although we will update our expectations based on our observations of future voting tendencies.

USTP Members: Vote soon if you have not already done so in order to ensure that you have a voice in this election!

Message from Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party: Discussions like this one are among the major reasons for my involvement in the transhumanist movement. Steele Archer of the Debt Nation show has hosted an excellent panel on life-extension advocacy – its history, motivations, and future prospects, as well as the societal implications and relationship to technological advancement more broadly. Watch it here for interdisciplinary insights from Ira Pastor, Johannon Ben Zion, and myself: www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbDG0Qa10H8.

Also, this panel is a call to action – an emphasis that anyone can become a life-extension activist, and our growing but still far-too-small movement needs you and your unique skill sets. If you are a member of the U.S. Transhumanist Party, please vote in our ongoing election; support the candidate(s) of your choice, as all of them are advancing the cause of life extension and transhumanist ideas more broadly in their own ways. If you are not yet a member of the USTP, join us for free here - transhumanist-party.org/membership/ - to be able to vote in future elections.

U.S. Transhumanist Party Presidential Primary Election Update: The vote count stands at 171 as of September 24, 2019, at 8:48 p.m. Pacific Time. We have had to discard two duplicate votes. Otherwise, all votes have been validated and accepted.

The USTP regrets the withdrawal of Kimberly Forsythe's candidacy and wishes her well. We have adjusted the official infrastructure to accommodate said withdrawal. Fortunately, with ranked-preference voting, the ability to make such an adjustment is built-in. All members who previously voted for Kimberly Forsythe in any ranking will have their votes beneath that ranking shifted to be one rank more favorable (analogous to an instant runoff in which she ceased to be in the running) – so, for example, if someone voted for Kimberly Forsythe as #1 and Candidate X as #2, then Candidate X will be considered to be that person's restated #1 choice.

Based on the most current assessment of member activity, the quorum for this election is hereby revised slightly downward to 882 votes. We are 19.4% of the way to the quorum. All USTP members are encouraged to approach their fellow members and ask them to vote in this historic election!

Greetings, USTP Members.

Voting in the 2019 Electronic Ranked-Preference Primary for President of the United States will open late on September 21, 2019, Pacific Time, which will already be September 22, 2019, in the Eastern United States and many other parts of the world.

Here is a brief overview of what to expect:

1. Registered USTP members will receive their ballots via e-mail. The links to the ballots are confidential and must NOT be shared with non-members under any circumstances. Anyone found to be circulating ballot links to non-members will be expelled from the USTP.

The USTP will have other measures to validate that votes are cast by genuine members and members only. Each vote will be manually reviewed and cross-referenced with our membership records. Duplicate votes and attempted votes by non-members will be discarded if found.

2. Because of the USTP's commitment to ranked-preference voting, which is superior and more representative than single-choice plurality voting, this ballot requires voters to rank-order all ten candidate options (nine candidates and "None of the Above" – which may be selected as first, last, or in the middle of your options).

I have provided a screenshot of the most substantive portion of the ballot. This is a multiple-choice grid, where you will indicate your preference order from 1 to 10. You will need to fill out the grid so that there is exactly one entry in each row and each column.

You will need to select "1" for your top choice, "2" for your second-highest preference, "3" for your third-highest preference, and so on until you select "10" for your last preference. *You will need to scroll right* on the ballot to access the columns for selecting choices 9 and 10. Rank-ordering all options is crucial to enabling your vote to continue to count through the instant-runoff process. It is highly likely that no candidate will obtain a majority of the votes on the first round, and so multiple instant runoffs (with one candidate being eliminated per runoff) will be necessary until one candidate reaches more than 50 percent of the votes.

Remember: ranked-preference voting eliminates the incentives for tactical/strategic voting. By rank-ordering all options, you can comfortably put your genuine first choice first, no matter how other people are likely to vote. You are strongly encouraged to vote your conscience and give us your genuine preference order. This will maximize the probability of an outcome that you find reasonable.

3. Membership in the U.S. Transhumanist Party reached 1800 today. Accordingly, a quorum of 50% of the membership is hereby set at 900 members. New members may continue to join and be eligible to vote until 12:01 a.m. Pacific Time on September 22, 2019. However, the quorum for this election will remain at 900 members to provide for a slight buffer in the event that any portion of the existing member population has become inactive.

4. Voting will remain open until the *later of* the end of September 29, 2019, or the end of the day upon which the 900th vote has been cast. Accordingly, we cannot foresee how long the vote will last; however, repeated measures will be taken to reach out to members and drive voter turnout. All candidates are requested to assist in these measures periodically, as it is in everyone’s interest for the election to conclude sooner rather than later, while ensuring that the outcome is representative of the views of the broader USTP membership. The more of our members are interested and engaged, the better!

5. After voting closes, instant runoffs will be tabulated both manually and using an open-source program. Tabulating, validating, and publishing results is expected to be a time-consuming process and so will occur up to one week after close of voting. Please be patient!

6. Absolutely NO interim vote results will be released. Do not even ask. Ranked-preference voting does not work that way. We do, however, plan to release interim updates about *how many* members voted thus far, and any revisions to the quorum (at the sole discretion of the USTP leadership, if additional members are found to have become inactive).

7. This is a secret ballot. Detailed results will be released after the voting concludes, but they will be anonymized, so that no names will be associated with specific votes. To protect individual privacy, names of those who voted will not be disclosed unless the individual voters authorize such disclosure. Only I and five select USTP Officers will ever see the individual votes with voter names – for the purpose of validating that the votes came from genuine USTP members and being able to confirm that they were tabulated accurately and fairly. We are committed to confidentiality and will not disclose the names of voters without their permission.

8. Please feel free to contact Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II if you have any questions or experience any technical difficulties in casting your ballot. (However, before you ask any questions about technical difficulties, please make sure that you have rank-ordered all 10 options and scrolled to the right to discover the columns for indicating choices 9 and 10!)

The Current State of Longevity Science: www.linkedin.com/pulse/current-state-longevity-science-margaretta-colangelo/

The fourth article in the Official Linkedin Weekly Longevity Industry Newsletter is now available. This week, Aging Analytics Agency co-founders Dmitry Kaminskiy and Margaretta Colangelo cover the Current State of Longevity Science, and discuss in detail how Artificial Intelligence will accelerate real-world implementations of Longevity Science, enabling a paradigm shift from Precision Medicine to Precision Health.

"The next significant hurdle in the advancement of the Longevity Industry is digital integration, and in the next few years the enhanced precision this provides will create a paradigm shift and open the doors to a wide array of R&D applications. This enhanced precision will be grounded in panels of actionable biomarkers of aging obtained partly via digital wearable devices. This will enable the rapid assessment of the efficiency of treatments, and the equally rapid identification of the appropriate prevention and restoration of those age-associated changes. To put it simply: The core of Longevity Science will be Biomarkers and AI-Technology."

Message from Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman, United States Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party: For those interested in my thoughts on the connections among music, technology, algorithms, artificial intelligence, transhumanism, and the philosophical motivations behind my own compositions, I have had a peer-reviewed paper, “Empowering Human Musical Creation through Machines, Algorithms, and Artificial Intelligence”, published in Issue 2 of the INSAM Journal of Contemporary Music, Art, and Technology. This is a rigorous academic publication but also freely available and sharable via a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license - just as academic works ought to be - so I was honored by the opportunity to contribute my writing. My essay features discussions of Plato and Aristotle, Kirnberger's and Mozart's musical dice games, the AI-generated compositions of Ray Kurzweil and David Cope, and the recently completed "Unfinished" Symphony of Franz Schubert, whose second half was made possible by the Huawei / Lucas Cantor, AI / human collaboration. Even Conlon Nancarrow, John Cage, Iannis Xenakis, and Karlheinz Stockhausen make appearances in this paper. Look in the bibliography for YouTube and downloadable MP3 links to all of my compositions that I discuss, as this paper is intended to be a multimedia experience.

Music, technology, and transhumanism - all in close proximity in the same paper and pointing the way toward the vast proliferation of creative possibilities in the future as the distance between the creator's conception of a musical idea and its implementation becomes ever shorter.

Read the paper here: transhumanist-party.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Stolyarov_Empowering_Musical_Creation.pdf

“Top-30 Longevity Conferences 2019-2020” is a 60-page open-access analytical report by Aging Analytics Agency that uses cost-benefit analysis to identify the Top-30 Longevity Conferences globally taking place in 2019-2020, including detailed analysis and infographics on their regional distribution, cost, and focus.

Link to the Report: www.aginganalytics.com/longevity-conferences

The report is complemented by a comprehensive online Longevity Conferences IT-Platform that contains data on 150 Longevity-related conferences taking place in 2019-2020.

With the rapid development of the Longevity industry in recent years, the number of events dedicated to this topic has increased proportionately. These events differ from one another in a number of ways including target audience, scope of featured topics, entrance fee range, region and venue, etc. Potential participants need to be aware of such details while planning which conferences to attend, and this report seeks to serve as a guide for this kind of decision making.

The report also highlights a number of previous conferences held by top-tier finance and business media brands like The Economist, Financial Times, Bloomberg and others, as well as prominent financial institutions and investment banks, that helped establish Longevity as the mainstream topic for major financial and healthcare conferences that it is today.

Message from Gennady Stolyarov II, Chairman of the United States Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party: At long last, my essay “The United States Transhumanist Party and the Politics of Abundance” is available in the newly published master compilation, The Transhumanism Handbook, edited by Newton Lee, the California Transhumanist Party Chairman and U.S. Transhumanist Party Education and Media Advisor. This book is a milestone publication in transhumanist thought, and I encourage everyone to purchase it and read it in full. Fortunately, I am able to share my own chapter – 60 pages within the book – for free download here: transhumanist-party.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/Stolyarov_USTP_Politics_of_Abundance.pdf.

Read “The United States Transhumanist Party and the Politics of Abundance” for a detailed explanation of the premises behind transhumanist politics and what the U.S. Transhumanist Party stands for. This essay is current through year-end 2018, and various other significant developments have occurred since then. However, it should give you a strong impression of the USTP’s values, operating procedures, areas of focus, and aspirations for the future.

Abstract: “The depredations of contemporary politics and the majority of our era’s societal problems stem from the scarcity of material resources and time. However, numerous emerging technologies on the horizon promise to dramatically lift the present-day constraints of scarcity. The United States Transhumanist Party, in advocating the accelerated development of these technologies and seeking to influence public opinion to embrace them, is forging a new political paradigm rooted in abundance, rather than scarcity. This new approach is simultaneously more ambitious and more civil than the status quo. Here I illustrate the distinguishing features of the Transhumanist Party’s mode of operation, achievements, and plans for the future.”

We once again have openings for two volunteer Officer positions in the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party. We have a small but dedicated Officer team whose multiplicity of talents have enabled the USTP to achieve on a level far beyond what our size might suggest. Those interested in joining us should e-mail Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II at gennadystolyarovii@gmail.com.

DIRECTOR OF VISUAL ART - transhumanist-party.org/leadership/#DirectorOfVisualArt: The Director of Visual Art position would be suited for an artist, graphic designer, art scholar, and/or curator who has a strong interest in technological progress and the improvement of the human condition. This position would be responsible for locating techno-positive, transhumanist-themed art, working with the artists to publicize it on the U.S. Transhumanist Party website and social media, developing or locating graphic-design resources for the Transhumanist Party to use in spreading its message (e.g., infographics, posters, covers, memes) and generally helping us cultivate a techno-positive, futuristic, and refined esthetic that inspires public interest and serves to motivate humankind’s ascent toward the next great era of our civilization.

The Director of Visual Art will also have the opportunity to promote his or her work on the U.S. Transhumanist Party website and social-media pages, achieving exposure to a growing and sympathetic audience.

CAMPAIGN DIRECTOR - transhumanist-party.org/leadership/#CampaignDirector: 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.

Message from U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II: In honor of the July 4 holiday, I am re-invoking this poster created by Steven Chernets – because, indeed, I want YOU to vote Transhumanist in the upcoming August Electronic Primary and, if possible, in the 2020 General Election. But first, coming up this Saturday, July 6, 2019, at 3 p.m. U.S. Pacific Time, watch history being made during the first-ever official Presidential primary debate entirely among Transhumanist candidates: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LeKsUFTzPv0.

We look forward to having candidates Charles Holsopple, Rachel Haywire, Dan Good, and Johannon Ben Zion discuss Transhumanist principles and policy ideas and why the Upwing political orientation needs to spread to enable us all to transcend the Left and the Right.

Watch this wide-ranging discussion between U.S. Transhumanist Party Chairman Gennady Stolyarov II and Steele Archer of the Debt Nation show, addressing a broad array of emerging technologies, the aspirations of transhumanism, and aspects of both broader and more personal economic matters – from the impact of technology on the labor market to how Mr. Stolyarov paid off his mortgage in 6.5 years. This conversation delved into Austrian economics, techno-optimism, cultural obstacles to progress, the work and ideals of the U.S. Transhumanist Party / Transhuman Party, life extension and the “Death is Wrong” children’s book, science fiction, and space colonization – among many other topics.
