Alternatives to Involuntary Death, Paperback / softback Book

Alternatives to Involuntary Death Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Death is increasingly on the agenda for baby boomers moving ever closer to it.

Timothy Leary brings some startlingly fresh ideas to this topic.

Fundamentally, he claims, we have been brainwashed by our institutions government, organized religion, the healthcare industry to accept death as an inevitable end.

Leary argues instead that death is misunderstood, that we don't have to die, and that there are "commonsense alternatives." His theory rests on the transhumanist approach that says human beings are evolving into spiritual machines beings that are part human and part machine and eventually will not die as the term is commonly understood.

Being fitted with machine parts like bionic knees is part of this process. And as we evolve through the cybernetic age, he says, we will gain new wisdom that broadens our definition of personal immortality and gene-pool survival the "postbiologic option of the information species."
