From the Truths of Terasem

Who is Terasem? Terasem is a collective consciousness dedicated to diversity, unity and joyful immortality.

The term collective consciousness is making more and more appearances in the media. For one example, watch the Internet Rising Documentary which was released on 11.29.11. It is a digi-documentary investigating the evolving relationships between the Internet and collective consciousness of humanity. It provokes many questions about ancient and modern paradoxes of life, its pleasures and pains... and the gray area contrasts in between.

 

From the CyBeRev project

The purpose of the CyBeRev project is to prevent death by preserving sufficient digital information about a person so that recovery remains possible by foreseeable technology.

In a recent article by Ben Kunz in Business Week entitled Siri Means You'll (Almost) Never Have to Die, the author asserts that "Technology such as Apple's Siri and the voice-recognition software in Android will make your persona live forever".

 

In the Terasem Journals

Ray Kurzweil talked about how "the rate at which we introduce new ways of doing things and adopt new technologies, is accelerating" in a journal article published in 2006.

The New York Times reported on November 12, 2011, that the new Indian Institute of Technology in Rajasthan, considered one of the MIT's of India, has dedicated itself to connecting "the last person." In the article, the publisher states that "We're at the start of a nonlinear move in innovation thanks to the hyperconnecting of the world — through social media, mobile/wireless devices and cloud computing — which is putting cheap innovation devices into the hands of so many more people, enabling them to collaborate on invention is so many new ways."

Space Frontier Foundation Honors PanAmSat’s Rene Anselmo --- Rene Anselmo, former CEO and Founder of PanAmSat (an entrepreneurial satellite communications service firm that broke the monopolistic barrier on international satellite communications), was posthumously awarded the Pioneer of NewSpace Award by the Space Frontier Foundation on July 28, 2013 at the NewSpace 2013 conference in San Jose, CA. The Space Frontier Foundation gives annual awards to people, companies and institutions that, in the Foundation's view, have made the greatest contributions to opening the space frontier. This award is given to early leaders of the NewSpace industry who left a lasting legacy either through their own personal investment or the creation of a NewSpace business.

Personality MD

September 2010

Personality MD -- Terasem releases a new Android app based on Cyberev's Bainbridge modules that allows people to record their responses with a smart phone.  Simple to use, it provides a distinctive two-dimensional response scale, allowing for great self-expression and resulting in an evaluation truly unique to you.  Plus you can see how your personality traits compare to those of others and find people in your area who are on the same wavelength (or find out where in the world people on your wavelength are!)

LifeQuest: Dozens of Stories about Cryonics, Uploading, and other Transhuman Adventures -- Seven issues of short stories, published during the late 1980's over three and one half years, two decades before the readership for them even existed. Here are stories about what happened in cryonics and uploading once the techniques of nanotechnology reached a point where self-replicating machines could do things that still, today, lie in the future, but not so far as one might think.
