- REPORTS OF MY DEATH...
During 2005, I resolved to take WTT in a new
In my view, as the decades of this century
unfold, three issues will increasingly dominate
philosophy and the human experience:
* the emergence of technologically-achieved
* vastly improved understanding of the nature of
human thought and consciousness;
* emergent human nature--not as a product of
accidental, evolutionary process but as a
product of human design.
These are some components of a view that
may be called transhumanism. As I see it,
any philosophy that does not embrace trans-
humanism is destined to become an intel-
Objectivism, it has been said, is a philosophy
for living. But to remain a living philosophy,
it must become a philosophy for living FOREVER,

Life decided to take ME in a new direction; I was

lighthearted narratives and commentaries based
upon my experiences and
the /philosophy/history/future of death in

my sense of humor remains intact.
Well-wishes in general are appreciated, but

* Next week I hope to have the new, streamlined We
the Thinking online.
Precisely how these two vehicles, WTD and WTT,
will complement each other, and how they will
evolve and survive, is something of a mystery
to me. I hope you'll join me in the journey
and in the discovery.
All those previously registered as members of
We the Thinking will be in the We the Dead
database as members. These sites, however,
are independent, and henceforth will require
independent registration and login for new
