TransVision 2010 – New confirmed speakers

The following speakers will give talks at TransVision 2010, which
brings the number of confirmed speakers to 33. Other speakers will be
announced in a few days.

Roberto Marchesini is a well known Italian biologist and
epistemologist. He is the author of one of the first books on
transhumanism published in Italy: Post-human (Bollati Boringhieri,
2002). A lecturer in several Universities, Marchesini is the President
of the Italian Society of Applied Behavioral Sciences and the Director
of the School of Human-Animal Interaction. See Roberto Marchesini a
TransVision 2010.

David Styles is the organiser of the UK-based voluntary mutual
assistance organisation for cryonics emergency standby, stabilisation,
and transport services. In this position, he has laboured successfully
over the past 18 months to strengthen capabilities in the UK and on
the continent, and has lately been involved in a project (over the
course of the last year) to create a professional Pan-European
service, launching in this October. See David Styles at TransVision
2010: A new development in cryonics standby, stabilisation, and
transport capabilities in Europe.

Driven by extremes of ambitions, hope, aspirations, expectations; yet
shackled by paroxisms of insanity, doubt, conceit, lazyness, pain,
sexual depravity, despair and intransience, the person who has chosen
to call herself ‘Khannea Suntzu’ is a western European artist. In fact
Khannea is not one person, but several associated artists working
together. Respective ‘real world’ identities and conventions of these
people are no longer relevant — they have discarded their soul to a
greater cause – the manifestation and incarnation of something Khannea
refers to as ‘Lilith’ as an artillect. To this effect the cause of
worldwide transhumanism is a means to an end – for Khannea
transhumanism, (and specifically the ideals and values espoused by the
smaller ‘Order of Cosmic Engineers’) signify a future where
individuals have vastly amplified power over a vastly expanded world.
See Khannea Suntzu at TransVision 2010.

TransVision 2010 is a global transhumanist conference and community
convention, organized by several transhumanist activists, groups and
organizations, under the executive leadership of the Italian
Transhumanist Association (AIT) and with the collaboration of an
Advisory Board. The event will take place on October 22, 23 and 24,
2010 in Milan, Italy with many options for remote online access.
