In this case the line along which the splinter is cut is not
political. Well, in some sense it is, because everything related to
people is, but it is not explicitly political.

Instead, it is defined by taking transhumanism seriously, including
its more radical and apparently far-out aspects. Some transhumanists
take immortality, mind uploading and the limitless evolution of our
species in a great cosmic adventure seriously, and some
"transhumanists" don't..

I think another way which transhumanists (perhaps unconsciously)
divide themselves, is that of those who ardently desire to achieve
indefinite lifespan (sometimes even without the desire for cryonic
suspension), and those who see this option as realistically only being
open to the currently very young or unborn.

I wonder how many people who have been on this list will be making it...
