Our Cause

Utopian Focus – Bliss as a Compass

 

Transhumanist Abolitionism – we focus on a biotechnological approach towards the eradication of suffering in all sentient life throughout the biosphere, through the use of gene-therapy, psychopharmacology and widely available tools and techniques, backed up by scientific research.

 
A Polite Reminder by Utopian Focus:

More People Die from Suicide Than From Wars, Natural Disasters Combined

Suicide Rates – World Health Organization

“The World Health Organization reports more than 800,000 people die by suicide every year. WHO, which is launching its first global report on suicide prevention, said more people die from suicide than from conflicts, wars and natural disasters combined.
The World Health Organization reported every 40 seconds a person somewhere in the world commits suicide. Despite this shockingly high statistic, WHO said only a handful of countries have policies aimed at suicide prevention.”

Let’s restore dignity to sentient life throughout the biosphere. Any support is welcome and will allow us to push our cause forward.
We are devoted to research and share the best Transhumanist insights and currently available tools and therapies to minimize suffering and enrich all sentient life throughout the living world.

 

The Hedonistic Imperative

“The abolitionist project is hugely ambitious but technically feasible. It is also instrumentally rational and morally urgent. The metabolic pathways of pain and malaise evolved because they served the fitness of our genes in the ancestral environment. They will be replaced by a different sort of neural architecture – a motivational system based on heritable gradients of bliss. States of sublime well-being are destined to become the genetically pre-programmed norm of mental health. It is predicted that the world’s last unpleasant experience will be a precisely dateable event.

Two hundred years ago, powerful synthetic pain-killers and surgical anesthetics were unknown. The notion that physical pain could be banished from most people’s lives would have seemed absurd. Today most of us in the technically advanced nations take its routine absence for granted. The prospect that what we describe as psychological pain, too, could ever be banished is equally counter-intuitive. The feasibility of its abolition turns its deliberate retention into an issue of social policy and ethical choice.”
