Infinite Life II: The Transhumanists

I’m working on a long post that will hopefully be published later this week, but, in the meantime, here’s another article from The Atlantic about immortality. The piece focuses on practical matters, largely on the transhumanist community, centered in and around Silicon Valley, which is working on scientific and technological methods for radically and, perhaps one day, indefinitely extending human life. There are some nice introductions to arguments for and against this endeavor that we will no doubt return to in more depth in future installments of this series (which, I promise, will not just be a sequence of links to articles in The Atlantic).
