“And Now, Faster-Than-Light Culture”

By Michael Garfield, posted on September 27, 2011

Last week’s discovery at CERN of neutrinos traveling faster than light – poetically announced on the autumnal equinox, when Venus goes direct in Scorpio as the evening star and Persephone emerges from the Underworld in our mythic imagination – has physics forums buzzing about the possibility that this is “solid” evidence of long-hypothesized additional dimensions.

Coevolution & The Technology of Desire

By Michael Garfield, posted on September 25, 2011

A few years ago, the first emotional robot pet hit the market.  Designed by the co-inventor of Furby, Pleo the Dinosaur is an adorable little beast, big eyes and feet, curious and playful and a little awkward… just like a baby dinosaur, except it comes in a box and is full of electronic innards.  Kids can […]

Los Doppelgangers: Who Wants To Be Post-Chicano?

By Sasha Mitchell, posted on September 20, 2011

“‘Make sex mandatory,’ says Guillermo — now in heels.  Dude’s a phenom, and I for one wonder if he’s banged Miss Ghraib.  Montoya likens him to Gloria Swanson, which is fun. “   She’s eccentric; the kind of gal who stands in the corner at a social gathering, sweating and listening to a Fred Astaire […]

My Hippocampus is Bigger than Yours

By Hank Pellissier, posted on September 18, 2011

                  From the future (2019 AD) Competitive “Brain-Beauty” events, umpired by MRI scanners, are Earth’s most popular sport.  It’s startling to realize they’re only 2.5 decades old! Rivalry in noggin-physique erupted in 2004 when University of Wisconsin neurologists gushed about the left front lobe (LFL) thickness of […]

Where’s The Desperate Joy?

By R.U. Sirius, posted on September 16, 2011

The grand old website Slate has been featuring a debate about transhumanism (human enhancement).

You Should Definitely Take More Drugs

By James Kent, posted on September 13, 2011

  The greatest discovery of modern pharmacology is not a single drug, or even a vaccine, or even a miracle cure to some wretched disease. Rather, the greatest discovery is the validation of the theory that all human sensation is mediated by chemicals. Chemicals make us feel pleasure, pain, fear, joy, despair, or completely numb. […]

Gwyneth Paltrow Makes Everybody Sick or Pig Bat Bat Bat Pig

By falafel j. pickren, posted on September 11, 2011

“Fuck Hollywood.  And fuck this virus. I’ve stopped caring.  We never really even see it, but it’s the best actor in the film so far.”   It’s probably incredibly trite to start of a review of Soderbergh’s Contagion with the phrase: “it all starts with a cough.”  But it does, and boy does Lady Martin look […]

Dues Ex’s Eyeborg Documentary

By R.U. Sirius, posted on September 9, 2011

I must brag that Rob Spence — whose eyeborgian experience is now a much lauded documentary associated with Dues Ex Revolution’s latest cyberpunk/transhumanist release — was in an edition of H+ magazine that I edited two years ago…  although the full props go to Kristi Scott for bringing in the article. Magazine here. Article also […]
