This is my first post here and probably aspects of what I am interested in doing belong in other categories but I will start here.
I believe that because of:
- The rapidly accelerating World’s Sixth Mass Extinction
- Now unstoppable Global Warming
- World Economic collapse in the near-term
- The slide of Western “Democracies” into full-blown Fascism
- Global military conflicts over water, food and resources generally
that the collapse in Human Civilisation as we currently know it is inevitable within single-digits years or a decade or two at most. I am not interested in arguing here about this thesis but I want some feedback on the technical issues I outline below.
My background was in BioMedical Research and then IT but for more than 20 years I have been involved in Radical Life Extension projects but now the problems itemised above will rule out the biological options for RLE and I am convinced that the only option is for cybernetic humans to inherit the the culture and civilisation of the last 10,000 years.
There are concerns over malevolent AI but what I am talking about here is the uploading of human consciousnesses from both living people and from whatever information can be recovered from frozen human brains. We need the equivalent of a “Manhatten Project” funded and run by like-minded people to rapidly develop the technology to allow this process to occur.
So, I want to create a DAO (probably via my non-profit NAF - see below) that:
- Can accept donations or contributions
- Run itself with human participation initially but with AI to help makelogical and rational decisions as soon as possible
- Successfully fund the rapid development of the technology required
Constructive feedback about my idea would be greatly appreciated!
