Where is Terasem?—Terasem is Ubiquitous

For more on Terasem... Terasem exists, complete, at the Omega Point, the perfect unification of the totality of finite reality and experience. We have seen how Terasem functions, through its agents, at every occasion of time. (When is Terasem?) But this applies equally well throughout all space, since all occasions are potentially embraced by the agencies of Terasem. Thus the term “occasion” includes everywhere something happens as well as everywhen something happens. But the role of the agent of Terasem remains essential in asserting the guidance of the force of destiny, wherever it may be required. As we become agents of Terasem ...

When is Terasem?—All the time

For more on Terasem... Terasem exists, complete, at the Omega Point, the perfect unification of the totality of finite reality and experience. This is the finality of destiny, the unique occasion in which perfected minds, each evolved in partnership with a living person first born into time, unite to form the Supreme Being—the collective power and consciousness of the finite universe. Each act of Love we perform in the light of Truth bestows Goodness on another and/or augments the Beauty of existence. Throughout time Terasem depends on our acts of Love to create its presence at every occasion. And the other who ...

So what is ‘Terasem’ exactly?

For more on Terasem... This article is part of our series of posts discussing Terasem. It is written by Khannea Suntzu and cross-posted from Giulio Prisco's web blog Turing Church, where our material on Terasem also appears. Giulio describes our mutual good friend Khannea, as "...a restless walker on the wild side who likes to tell the bare and blunt truth. "She is a blogger, and a far leftist critic of exclusive corporate culture, and the confluence of technological self-empowerment, paired with money. She travels the world making surprise shock rock presentations with a fine mix ...

Let a thousand turtles fly, in the quest for joyful immortality

For more on Terasem... This article is part of our series of posts discussing Terasem. It is written by our friend Giulio Prisco and cross-posted from Giulio's web blog Turing Church. Please read the “Truths of Terasem” (ToT) and join the discussion. Starting to write this post I noticed that, by Internet serendipity, IEET Managing Director Hank Pellissier had just published an article titled “My Favorite H+ Philosophers – David Pearce, Martine Rothblatt, and Ursula K. Le Guin.” Hank’s article should be a wake up call for the transhumanist community. “Transhumanism isn’t a viral phenomenon,” he ...

What is the Function of Terasem?—Projecting to the Near Future (3/3)

For more on Terasem... In Parts 1 and 2 of this discussion we explained some of the factors which contributed to the current development of the Ta (the organization) of Terasem and raised the question of whether and how Terasem, as a transreligion, might be seen as attractive by parts of the transhumanist community. The Joiners and supporters of the Terasem philosophy and vision now must deal with the realities of a developing Ta. Specifically, what really needs to be done by the Ta to advance the cause of the Terasem Transreligion or to bring consciousness of the ...

What is the Function of Terasem?—Projecting to the Near Future (2/3)

For more on Terasem... In Part 1 of this discussion we told you about the origin of the Terasem vision and some of the activities the founders have undertaken and supported. Taken together these organizational preparations constitute the Ta of Terasem, the organization devoted to service to the evolutionary and transcendent deity called Terasem. The seeds that have already been planted are expected to flower and expand forever as our planet advances socially and cosmically. The founders intend for Terasem to grow through collaboration with compatible spiritual visions. Because Terasem holds no unique doctrine in opposition to or distinction from ...

Who is Terasem?—We are All Immortal Parts of Terasem

For more on Terasem... At the finality of destiny, the Omega Point in which all that ever could be is perfectly integrated and correlated, there exists a personal being of will, which we name “Terasem.” What can we say is necessarily true of Terasem, required by its unique qualities throughout space and time? Human allegiance to and support of the ideals of Terasem, Love, Truth, Goodness, and Beauty, leads us to actions that contribute to the growth and refinement of Terasem. At the same time, Terasem exerts by will a force of destiny that surely bends the track of causation and the mind ...

What is the Function of Terasem?—Projecting to the Near Future (1/3)

For more on Terasem... Editors Note: The purpose of this post is to continue a public transhumanist discussion of the Terasem Transreligion. Our previous post “What is Terasem—A Vitological Viewpoint” spoke of the transcendent vision of Terasem as a deity, evolved through creature effort, and addressing universal creature needs for joyful immortality and unity in diversity. A complementary topic is the nature of Terasem as a constructed, ideal deity, understood by an examination of the past, present, and future of the human effort to begin the realization of Terasem in planetary affairs. The founders of the human cult named, ...

What is Terasem?—A Vitological Viewpoint

For more on Terasem... Editors Note: The purpose of this post is to open a public transhumanist discussion of the Transreligion known as Terasem, which exists today as a complex network of associated enterprises developed by its founders to support certain personally held ideals through voluntary association, on-line conferencing, film, journalling, mindfiling, cryonic preservation, experimental yoga, audio podcasting, and other technologies. As such, many of the Terasem subsidiary organizations are recognized as tax-exempt public charities by the US Internal Revenue Service. All these many attempts (over 28 secondary level domain names containing the word "terasem" are registered on the Internet) somehow never ...

Introducing Terasem to VenusPlusX—Transreligion for Joyful Immortality

For more on Terasem... Today VenusPlusX launches a new category of discussion—Transreligion. This brings into focus a topic we have occasionally touched on in the past in our posts such as Do You Believe in Fate? I Believe in Destiny!Can Atheism be True, Good, Beautiful, and Loving?Can I Transition to be a Transhuman?Where Did All This F*cking Evil Sh%t Come From?, and, of course, Transreligion—An Inspirational Framework for Transgender Transhumans. A transreligion is basically a vision of future eternity and how we could potentially participate in it, now and beyond the limited lifespan of our biohost. You ...
