Beyond Humanism Abstract

Quantification of post-human development

Calimport, S. R. G

Quantification of the processes that lead to a post-human state is key to the optimisation, scaling, distribution of post-human development.

By making abstract and qualitative claims about post-humanism this fundamentally hinders progress to a post-human state and may lead to state changes that do not progress us towards a post-human state or particular post-human state of interest.

Quantified self and self-tracking methods and tools that utilise big data and personalised analytics show promise for performing experiments that lead to a post-human state. In addition, quantified self and self-tracking methods allow for states and qualities previously and widely considered qualitative to be quantified. States such as emotional states, elegance of form, brain states, interpersonal interaction and lifestyles can now, for some parameters, be measured quantitatively.

By outlining clear milestones to reach and a mutual goal of achieving post-humanity this would allow focused work to optimise systems and innovate to reach a shared target. Quantification of ourselves and environments with self-tracking technologies and ubiquitous computing we can both see what processes, objects and states lead to characteristics we ascribe to the post-human, use the data for biofeedback and education, and engineer post-human futures.

A preliminary, longitudinal self-tracking project has been undertaken to track individual post-human development and the processes, objects or entities that may lead to post-human states. The proof-of-principle experiment tracks multi-level changes on the molecular, behavourial, cognitive, social, material and psychological level as an attempt is made to reach a post-human state with particular quantitative criteria. In this study the individual is attempting to achieve post-humanity as an intermediate state, with the core goal being an infinite lifespan through a systematic and comprehensive re-engineering of the self and universe.

The primary creation of the longitudinal project was a database of categorised processes, states and objects that may lead us towards or away from an infinite post-human existence. This may be the first categorised database of its kind that seeks to catalog processes, states and objects that we could enrich for or remove from existence in order to attain an infinite post-human existence. This cataloging will enable milestones to be created, experiments to be performed, actions to be quantified and goals to be reached.

By self-tracking and biofeedback the individual can modify their thoughts and behaviour in order to assist the development of post-human states. Self-tracking also allows sharing knowledge on how to develop into a post-human, and utilization of crowdsourcing becoming post-human.

During the proof-of-principle experiment multiple other potentially quantifiable processes were uncovered that could be tracked via self-tracking technologies and big data such as totals and growth of peaceful entities, global loss of negative human morphological and behavioural traits, tracking and removal of non-aesthetic items that are not conducive to longevity and the post-human state.
