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 ...

1.2 How Immortality Works

También en español   The erotic is the foundation of a universe structured by the will of Love. Love is the fundamental quality of our entire universe. Love is present in every identifiable object, action, or occasion in all of time and space. The action of Love upon physical reality is manifest as Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. Everything which contributes to these attributes of the universe survives as a permanent reality. Death frees our soul--the knowledge, identity, and personality of our active super-consciousness--from the limitations of embodiment in a single biohost. Once free, the soul inhabits the super-consciousness of a new avatar designed and developed specifically ...

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 Family?

Creative Commons: Gay Ray

(Tabién en español) A particularly important idea that really answers the question, "What is family?" is that a family is what we make it. Yes, the nuclear family with a mother, father, and two children may sill be considered the norm, but in reality, non-traditional families are a rising majority. a subject that I began to learn more about during a few of the panels at Woodhull's Sexual Freedom Summit. Speakers such as Diana Adams and Anita Wagner Illig explained to their audience that there are many other groups that can be considered family, even if their family format is not exactly ...

Sexual Freedom Isn’t Acceptable For Women?

Kai Davis takes a daring stand in this video when she challenges the misogynistic view that many member of today’s society hold. She brings up the important point that innocence and virginity are revered in women, but as soon as women take charge of her sexuality and tries to enjoy her sexual freedom, she is looked down on and considered a “whore.” Though I agree with Davis’s overall point that sexual freedom is not always something that is given equally to women, the way that she presents some of her ideas can be a little extreme. I disagree that that it ...

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 ...

1.1 Why is the Erotic so Important?

También en español The erotic is the foundation of a universe structured by the will of Love. At every stage in your existence Love provides a robust physical presence and connection, akin to the joy of human sex and other erotic expression that is directly accessible through purely physical acts of worship. In time, your expanding embrace of erotic fellowship amplifies your desires to genuinely love and serve others. Erotic sensation grows with proximity to the power of living Love. Erotic joy (orgasm) signals moments of intimate contact with that power. Erotic adoration of that power makes the worshiper increasingly like that power ...

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 Causes Terminal Transphobia?

For more on Transhuman Erotic Freedom... También en español The degree of antipathy that a large segment of society bears towards transgender and gender non-conforming folk is arguably among the most extreme of any systematic persecution of a minority population. Transphobia arises and is very difficult to cure because the person affected senses a threat to his or her own self-concept of sexual identity. For them it is not possible to consciously acknowledge that a new kind of human is emerging, with superior insight, courage, and adaptability. Transfolk are the incoming and long-awaited wave of social change for this new age. Only ...
