Yesterday I had the pleasure to participate in the February 2013 Discussion Group of the Mormon Transhumanist Association (MTA), via Google+ Hangouts. The meeting was mainly dedicated to the memory of our departed friend Dan Massey.
See also the video and transcripts of the August 2012 meeting. Dan described very eloquently the idea, also outlined in his comment to How to cope with death: the Cosmist ‘Third Way’, that other civilizations in the universe may have already developed resurrection technologies and may be already “providing resurrection services” to less advanced civilizations like ours. If this is the case, we and everyone else in the universe will be resurrected by the “Cosmic Government.”
Watch the full video of February 2013 meeting below.
Carl Youngblood started with a moving online version of the Mormon funeral rites, then Gabriel Rothblatt remembered Dan’s contribution to Terasem, and we shared good memories of Dan.
