About Me

CURRENT MISSION

PHILOSOPHY

I am a transumanist,I study the the philosophical and scientific basis of human flourishing and happiness, I am strongly optimist about the possibility of human enhancement in a collaborative and democratic environment, thanks to new advanced technology. I am in favour of radical lifespan-extension and against ageing and social discrimination of old people.
