  1. The Future: History that Hasn’t Happened Yet - SXSW 2017

    Bruce Sterling - author, journalist, editor, critic, theorist, futurist, and blogger – rattles the future’s bones in his annual SXSW rant. He’s the legendary Cyberpunk Guru. He roams our postmodern planet, from the polychrome tinsel of Los Angeles to the chicken-fried cyberculture of Austin… From the heretical Communist slums of gritty Belgrade to the Gothic industrial castles of artsy Torino… always whipping that slider-bar between the unthinkable and the unimaginable.

  5. SF in SF, January 2017 with Kim Stanley Robinson and Cecelia Holland

    An evening with authors Kim Stanley Robinson and Cecelia Holland, reading and in conversation with Terry Bisson.

    Kim Stanley Robinson has published nineteen novels and numerous short stories but is best known for his Mars trilogy. His work has been translated into 24 languages. Many of his novels and stories have ecological, cultural and political themes running through them and feature scientists as heroes. Robinson has won numerous awards, including the Hugo Award for Best Novel, the Nebula Award for Best Novel and the World Fantasy Award. Robinson’s work has been labeled by The Atlantic as “the gold-standard of realistic, and highly literary, science-fiction writing.” According to an article in The New Yorker, Robinson is “generally acknowledged as one of the greatest living science-fiction writers.”

    Cecelia Holland is a grande dame of historical fiction who began writing at age twelve. Her first published work, The Firedrake, arrived in 1966, and since then she has written extensively in historical fiction, modern and speculative fiction, short stories, children’s fiction, and speculative and factual nonfiction. One critic wrote, “What sets Cecelia’s work apart in the genre is not just her productivity but also her versatility; she has the unique ability to make most any his…

  9. Scott Jeffery, Ph.D. - Tantric Transhumanism

    Tantric Transhumanism: An Esoteric History of Human Enhancement

    This paper proposes a model of Tantric Transhumanism as a counterpoint to the dominant intellectual frameworks underlying much Transhumanist philosophy. Though it is concerned with the proactive enhancement of human bodies and minds with technology many argue that Transhumanism is an ideological descendent of the Enlightenment with its roots in rational humanism. Viewed this way, Transhumanism lends itself easily to both utilitarian and neo-liberal economic visions. While both the European Utilitarian model and the American Libertarian model both present as rational, materialist philosophies (albeit differing along ideological lines) there remain strands of Transhumanist thought that have a more problematic relationship with these very same Enlightenment ideals of rationalism and materialism. Never the less, a second strain of “irrational” Transhumanism which appears to betray a metaphysical or even mystical streak can be discerned.

    This strain of Transhumanism runs through the Western occult tradition (indeed, the founder of Theosophy Madame H.P. Blavatsky was writing of the ‘post-Human’ as early as 1888). An alternative history of Transhumanism, which might be dubbed “Tantric Transhumanism” presents itself; one which takes in Cr…

  10. Geoff Greentree - The Sweat Lodge

    The Sweat Lodge – Ancient Technology in Modern Context

    I have travelled extensively, visiting many remote areas in Africa and the Middle East initially in the early 80’s while working on irrigation projects and subsequently studying tribal beliefs in Darfur, Upper Egypt and Madagascar. This led on to an interest in Native American practises and a desire to bring these into a modern context. After qualifying as a Shiatsu practitioner (I also teach) in the late 80’s I was based in Northern California working with HIV positive people in Chinese medicine practises and discovered a Lakota Shamanka running Sweatlodges for HIV positive people with incredible results.

    I propose to present an illustrated talk on The Sweat Lodge; it’s history, uses and how it works in a modern social context. Starting with the evidence of heat treatments from natural thermal springs and historical antecedents from Parmenides, Imhotep, Hippocrates et al in the near East city-states; looking at the evidence for use of hot stones for cleansing and purification in long barrows in Europe and elsewhere; re-appraising our archaeological view on group ceremonies of transcendence and transformation.

    Some detail on the suppression of the Lodges in Native American post-colonial culture and how the ceremonies have re-emerged and a…
