Training Transhumanism (I WANT TO BECOME A CEPHALOPOD)

Training Transhumanism is an open-sourced web-based instructional video series for training human enhancement based on the model of a cephalopod. Each video will instruct one exercise of the Training Transhumanism (I WANT TO BECOME A CEPHALOPOD) psycho-physical regimen for human enhancement in the face of rapid ecological and technological change, developed in collaboration with luciana achugar. Exercises train new sensitivities and capabilities, focusing on embodied intelligence, shape-shifting (camouflage) and distributed intelligence.
Training Transhumanism (I WANT TO BECOME A CEPHALOPOD) positions a non-mammalian animal as an evolutionary role model (rather than a machine); embraces the capacities residing in the biological human body and the pleasures rooted in bodily labors; advocates for embodied knowledge for the project of innovation; and embraces training as a technology is rooted in practice, development of internal abilities, and equity in access.
