Statement on Longevity in Bulgaria

Comments Off

On behalf of all participants of the 8th international & interdisciplinary conference “Vanguard scientific instruments in management ‘ 2015″ (VSIM:15), held in the town of Ravda (Bulgaria), 9 – 13 September 2015  We would like to state the following:

We are happy to celebrate October the 1-st, International Longevity Day!

– Events and promotions around that day, increasing education on biological and biomedical research of aging and longevity, are now planned in over 30 countries, on 5 continents. The participants in this campaign advocate that the status and support of this scientific field should be improved within the general framework of aging advocacy and support for older persons.
– We fully support the position paper on the “Critical need to promote research of aging and aging-related diseases to improve health and longevity of the elderly population”, briefly describing the rationales, technologies and policies needed to promote this research

We would like to see this to become the most massive global movement and we are ready to support it by all possible ways.

We are standing strongly for Radical Life Extension, Personal Enhancement and Transhumanism!

– It turns out that the most intriguing topic on the Conference was “Transhumanism, Longevity, Cybernetics”: 9 papers, including 2 teleconferences abroad (Israel, Canada), 7h. discussion time, Follow up letter:
– Main conclusions from the discussion are:
The concepts of Longevity and Transhumanism are still far from being popular and need further dissemination. Myths and prejudices overflow the public opinion.
Education is the key factor for success. It is destroying myths, changing minds and disseminating new ideas. In addition this is what we can do best. Therefore:
we will continue to develop a full scale academic course “Principles of Longevity and Transhumanism” in addition to the existing blocs of lectures;
we will develop an educational game “The Great Transhumanist Game” on the base of our experience in the field of educational games and computer simulations;
we will continue to collect and fill in the data base with annotated educational links, a specialized Wiki and all sorts of on-line educational resources;
attention should be paid in preparation of “Train the trainers” program, having in mind that millions of people must be educated.
– It is time to establish a private research and education center (and business incubator) on “Longevity and Transhumanism” in Sofia.
– We will publish our results in the electronic journal “VANGUARD SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS IN MANAGEMENT” (ISSN 1314-0582) Contributors are welcome.
– A precursor for a political party “Bulgarian Longevity and Transhumanist Party” will be created in the near future.
– Consider all above as a “To Do List” for this year and for the coming years. Most important: do something every day! Even a small step, but every day!
Transhumanists of the world unite – we have immortality to gain and only biology to lose!
