We are a Transhumanist Think Tank, Discussion and Social Forum dedicated to bringing about our own individual and also general human evolutionary and revolutionary transformation through Radical Science.
• lay the Intellectual and Visionary groundwork for the creation of a new Global Civilization based on Transhumanist principles.
• serve as a practical networking platform for active Transhumanists. We aim to move beyond theory and just ideas and into concrete plans of action.
• serve a role for a new Transhuman Civilization (and in time an actual Transhumanist Nation) similar to that served by the Founding Fathers of the United States.
• to advocate for an active program of Human Genetic Engineering to speed up the evolutionary upgrade of humanity and eliminate many of the worst flaws in our species.
We are attempting to deal with a modern world and its intellectual, spiritual and moral demands with a physical body that has not changed in 50,000-100,000 years and was designed to help us cope with day-to-day survival in the age of saber-toothed tigers and mammoths.
It is time to create a new Enhanced Species – an upgrade from Humanity to something far superior .
This can be pushed on several tracks concurrently : 1) Enhancement of ourselves with Transhumanist technologies and 2) Genetic Modification Programs to permanently change the Genetic make up of our species.
Imagine humans that are more intelligent, cooperative , peaceful, faster, stronger, capable of living for centuries and almost impervious to disease.
Imagine humans that will never know addiction, aggression, depression and other mental health defects.
Such a species would be capable of unity and untold accomplishments.
Such a species would be fit to expand into the cosmos and spread its wings.
Such a species would be nothing less than divine… gods like the Greek legends who lived on Mount Olympus.
We have that ability to create such a wonder.
We can create utopia and heaven on earth.
At Project Prometheus we want to discuss these developments and move beyond - to advocate, lobby for and coordinate efforts to actively bring this Vision to Reality and eventually create a Civilization based on these ideals.
We need to start somewhere and step-by-step and steadily move this Project along through our combined coordinated efforts on various fronts : scientific, economic, political, social, spiritual, cultural and philosophical.
These technologies are here or coming. The time to discuss and have an influence on developments is NOW.
Prometheus in Greek legend was a titan famous for giving humanity the gift of fire in defiance of the gods and for which he was punished by Zeus...his sin being that he blurred the line between humans and the gods which is exactly what "Project Prometheus" aims to do. Prometheus symbolizes and is an archetype for humanity's desire for perfection and to be better and for our children to have better than we had.
Maybe unlike some other Transhuman groups we actively encourage spiritual disciplines as a means of enriching the Transhuman Civilization and the human condition. Transcendence and religion are separate and not necessarily tied to each other. Transhumanism is not a monolithic movement. We come from various backgrounds which we as members commit to respect. However, having said that, it is generally accepted by the majority of Transhumanists that certain religious beliefs and viewpoints are fundamentally at odds with Transhuman principles. Potential members are forewarned that you may find your most cherished religious beliefs challenged and you may need to consider if this group is the right group for you to join if you are easily offended.
We aim to collect the finest minds together with the Prime Objective being the laying down of a blueprint (ideological, theoretical, practical) for a new Global Transhuman Civilization and Order.
In this sense we will go beyond mere presentation of random topics in science and technological innovations. Topics are strategically chosen to be a part of a plan for the step-by-step formulation of a coherent new Vision for Humanity.
