The term Cosmism was introduced by Tsiolokovsky and other Russian Cosmists around Cosmism, as Goertzel presents it, is a practical philosophy for the posthuman era.

Rooted in Western and Eastern philosophy as well as modern technology and science, it is a way of understanding ourselves and our universe that makes sense now, and will keep on making sense as advanced technology exerts its transformative impact as the future unfolds. Among the many topics considered are AI, nanotechnology, uploading, immortality, psychedelics, meditation, future social structures, psi phenomena, alien and cetacean intelligence and the Singularity.

The Cosmist perspective is shown to make plain old common sense of even the wildest future possibilities. Many chapters have been republished online by the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies , so the Cosmist Manifesto has been frequently discussed online already.

I am sure this book will be a life-changer for many readers. It is a transhumanist book, full of mind boggling future options and possibilities enabled by science and technology: extreme life extension aka immortality, artificial intelligences of human and super-human level, brain-computer interfacing, mind uploading, synthetic realities, spreading to the galaxies and beyond, perhaps to other dimensions of existence, resurrection, building gods… this is the real, visionary, wonderful, space-opera like transhumanism that was discussed on the Extropy list in the 90s.

But it is also a book about consciousness, spirituality, and a practical guide to living our lives in this unique phase of the evolution of our species, which is preparing to leave biology behind and spread to the universe. In the Cosmist Manifesto, Ben writes also about meditation, mental health, relationships, sexuality, zen, joy, wisdom, joy, and, why not, religion. In his book, Ben outlines my own world-view: there is not one word that I disagree with, and there is not one important omission that I can criticize.

I have often thought of writing a book, but Ben has written my book, and much better than I could have ever done. I am honored to have participated in some of the online discussions which have led to this book, and I am honored to be quoted in the Cosmist Manifesto. I have already bought the book on Amazon. Of course I had already read the online and PDF versions cover to cover, but this book deserves its place in the physical bookshelves of all transhumanists.

In both the published book and private communications, Ben is careful not to propose Cosmism as a new religion. But it has the potential to deliver some of the benefits of religion in a manner more consilient with science.

I have lost the habit of printing stuff on dead trees, I prefer to read electronic texts on screen. Tablet devices will, I hope, permit advancing toward the paperless society. I have bought the printed version of this book on Amazon though, because it deserves a place on my soon obsolete bookshelf. Perhaps it has been the last printed book that I have bought. But as for meaning and happiness?

For me, wonder and hope create happiness, and wonder and happiness create meaning. Hope is with us as long as discovery is with us. Discovery is inherently meaningful, and a source of true wonder and happiness, the highest possible joy, in fact:. Italy in is an interesting analogy. The political entity called Italy today may not exist anymore, but the geographical territory may still exist in a recognizable form.

Or, the geographical entity may have changed beyond recognition think of geo-engineering, land reclamation for the sea… but the political entity may still exist, or Italians may be scattered in a diaspora of persons who consider themselves Italian and speak the language. The last scenarios are good illustrations of the preservation of important patterns in different substrates,. Giulio Prisco. Giulio Prisco is a writer, technology expert, futurist and transhumanist.

A former manager in European science and technology centers, he writes and speaks on a wide range of topics, including science, information technology, emerging technologies, virtual worlds, space exploration and future studies. He serves as President of the Italian Transhumanist Association. Executive Director, Dr. James J.
