Transhumanism presentation was created to support the talk by Maria Konovalenko at the NMR meeting during the Estonian Magnet Week in Tallinn.
This presentation may be used a s a brief introduction to the idealogy of transhumanism that sees life being the ultimate value and seeks extending human abilities using modern technologies.
ONe of the ideas of the presentation is to show that regardless of how the existing funding of scientific research is distributed among the scientists, it is still not enough and it won't be enough unless there's a strong ideology behind scientific research. There has to be a social mandate for what the scientists are doing, only then there will be enough money. In order to form this socila mandate , the researchers have to openly talk to the public and the politicians via the media and explain clearly why their work is so much important and why it needs increased funding.
