Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote the geoethical (world ethical) use of nanotechnology for human life extension. We conduct educational programs and support scientific research and development in the areas of cryogenics, biotechnology, and cyber consciousness.

Description

The founders of Terasem are concerned that the potential of nanotechnology and related cyber consciousness for relieving human suffering and extending human life would be truncated due to unwarranted fears and concerns. The founders are also concerned, however, that nanotechnology and cyber consciousness could be made available only to an elite, or in a manner that creates class divisions within society. The founders believe that nanotechnology and cyber consciousness needs to be developed consistently with full respect for diversity and unity so that the potential for greatly extending human life and relieving human suffering can be realized.
