Homo-Evolutis: From Transgender to Transhuman
Обои для рабочего стола

Transgender is a modern terminology used to describe those who seek to transition between the biological genders, differing their originally born one for the other of their choosing. Transhuman is the terminology to describe those who see to move humanity beyond biological limitations laid out in genetic history and the evolutionary process. One can arguably trace these expressions of human consciousness through the depths of history, with modern communities forming out of the cultural openness developed in recent decades globally. As our study of consciousness and the human psyche improves, our knowledge of sexuality and gender will offer an increasing spectrum to explain the various perspectives and mentalities of individuals. Technology is offering verbatim the same thing in context to the transhuman phenomenon of genetic, cybernetic, and robotic augmentation of the human form to transition into other variations of humanity

If one considers the idea of Transhumanism and the view of humanity as Homo Evolutis; what one is experiencing is an example of Epigentics in action. This is fully expressed by the trans community already. Trans folks have taken it upon themselves to take their own biology into their own hands and are asserting the will of consciousness at the roots of their physical existence. Not only is that highly commendable and respectable on a philosophical level in numerous ways; it is creating a foundation for all of humanity and the future of the species. It must be recognized that the peoples of the trans community are laying the ground work for all Transhumans who will be following them. The idea that we will soon be able to augment ourselves in an epigenetics format is reinforced by the transitions occurring within the trans community.

However, just as there are those who view transhuman technologies as something of an “affront to God” and “evil”; there are those who label trans folks with similar slurs and derogatory condemnation. The abuse and rejection that trans people have been experiencing throughout history is a reminder to every transhuman that the responsibility of transitioning into something new has been met with force and cruelty in ways not fully comprehended yet. This is where transhumans must unequivocally support the trans community; we must not let such atrocities of history continue in the present day, nor march on into the future. The trauma inflicted must be met with solidarity, mutual aid, collective security, and the cooperation with one another; so as to allow a society in which transitioning between biological make ups can occur in healthy wellbeing-oriented environments.

As humanity deals with social upheaval needed to weed out the constipation of social conservatism and the repression of sexuality, focus must also be taken on the needed medical and technological necessities for transitions as standards of human rights. In order to allow for trans folks the opportunities to express themselves fully; whether it is gender transition or biological transition into new human evolutionary forms. The bigotry and cruelty expressed against those who do not fit artificially constructed social norms is no different than other bigotry created out of arbitrary superficial constructs, like race or ethnicity. If the human species is to survive, grow, and thrive; solidarity must push back against the bigotry, mutual aid must meet that cruelty head on. When these hostile, antithetical forces are removed from social influence; a renaissance of culture will be able to grow with the knowledge that full expression of the human form, be it sexuality or other, can be done without fear of reprisal or social condemnation.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
