  3. 3. + founders of Terasem are concerned the potentialThefor nanotechnology and cyberconsciousness forrelieving human suffering and extending human life: • Will be truncated due to unwarranted fears and concerns; • Could be made available only to the elite; and/or • Could be made in a manner that creates class divisions within society. www.TerasemCentral.org/about
  4. 4. + The founders of Terasem believe: • Nanotechnology and cyberconsciousness need to be developed consistently with full respect for diversity and unity; and • The potential for greatly extending human life and relieving human suffering can be realized. www.TerasemCentral.org/social
  5. 5. + Terasem accomplishes its objectives by: 1) Conducting annual, publicly accessible symposia: The Annual Workshop on Geoethical Nanotechnology When: Every July 20th in honor of the first lunar launch • Geoethics is the study of technology risk/benefit management across geographic spaces. Analogously, Bioethics is the study of technology risk/benefit management across corporeal or physical spaces. • The purpose of the event is to provide the public with informed perspectives regarding geoethical nanotechnology via expert presentations, challenges and discussions. It also seeks to develop a set of geoethical guidelines that will provide a “safe harbor” within which curative nanotechnology can develop. The Annual Colloquium on the Law of Futuristic Persons When: Every December 10th in honor of International Human Rights Day • The event seeks to provide the public with informed perspectives regarding the legal rights and obligations of "futuristic persons" via expert presentations, challenges and discussions. We also hope to facilitate development of a body of law covering the rights and obligations of entities that transcend, and yet encompass, conventional conceptions of humanness. Where: The venue for the workshops/colloquia is the Terasem Island Amphitheater within the virtual community of Second Life (coordinates: 121.155.30). www.TerasemCentral.org/events
  6. 6. + 2) Publishing explanatory analyses in its online journals: • The Journal of Geoethical Nanotechnology explores economic, political, social and technological aspects of the developing technology of molecular nanotechnology. The Journal invites submissions on controversial topics such as self-replication and governance. And • The Journal of Personal Cyberconsciousness explores the mathematical, physical, engineering (hardware, software, firmware), philosophical, psychological, biological, socio-economic, and juridical aspects of non-flesh based consciousness, such as could arise from an advanced machine- based computer. www.TerasemJournals.org www.TerasemJournals.org/submissions
  7. 7. + 3) Conducting demonstration projects: CyBeRev = Cybernetic Beingness Revival at: www.CyBeRev.org • The purpose of the CyBeRev project is to prevent death by preserving sufficient digital information about a person (within a Mindfile) so that recovery remains possible by foreseeable technology. At Terasem, we believe future technology will be able to recover full functionality for CyBeRev people. The service is free and open to anyone over the age of 13. PersonalityMD = Android Smartphone Application at: www.PersonalityMD.com • A fun and interactive questionnaire within a smart phone application serving as an on-the-go portal to preserving one’s consciousness with an option to save all input/answers to your CyBeRev Mindfile! www.CyBeRev.org & www.PersonalityMD.com
