Something is happening here, but you don’t know what it is, Do you, Mr. Jones” ?..
And you dunno where this “something” is happening either, Do you, Mr. Jones ?
Well, – let me tell you, Mr. Jones, – that somethin’ is happening in San Francisco, so.. If you’re going.. [..], be sure to.. check out the TRANSHUMAN VISIONS event, “An All-Day Conference featuring Biohackers, Neuro-Optimists, Extreme Futurists, Philosophers, Immortalist Artists..”

Hank Pellissier, the conference organizer, reveals in this interview, that inspiration and motivation for producing this conference came from his reading of Zoltan Istvan’s “The Transhumanist Wager“, who’s hero and main character, Jethro Knights, is compelled to an uncompromising, revolutionary and, – when necessary – militant attack on the brainwashing bullshit of religion and societal rules and etiquette.  (Reviews here, here and here).

Incidentally, visionary author Zoltan Istvan, along with biomedical gerontologist Aubrey de Grey, and neuroscientist Dr. Randal A. Koene, among others, will be speaking at the conference. Maitreya One – “a Hip-Hop Immortalist from the Bronx”, – will also be at the center of the action..,  -dig that,  Mr. Jones..

Come to think of it, I learned just the other day, that Ph.D. Egil Asprem, a scholar of esotericism, religion, and intellectual history, and a critic of transhumanismwho was kind enough to comment on this blog, is on the move to California../UC Santa Barbara, where he will research “Occult Minds: Esotericism as Cognition and Culture”.

Egil Asprem is no “Mr. Jones”, but I was wondering.., – should I notify him of this event.., and might he attend..

Anyway, if YOU , “Mr. Jones”, are going to San Francisco..

  1. Egil Asprem is going to UC Santa Barbara? I am an alumni of that place. I will look him up too and tell him about the conference. Thanks for posting this Joern, I will spread it around.
