Who are the Technoprogressives?

Who are the Technoprogressives? | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

When we started promoting the term “technoprogressive” as the IEET’s ideological position back in 2006 it helped us move beyond being the left wing of transhumanism to being part of a broader, deeper and older political current with roots in the Enlightenment. Our recent survey of the IEET audience helps us continue to flesh out what kinds of people are responding to the technoprogressive political project.

En bref : bientôt une mémoire en cristal comme Superman | Post-Sapiens, les êtres technologiques | Scoop.it

L’humanité archivera-t-elle sa mémoire dans des cristaux ? Peut-être, si l'on en croit une technologie développée à l'aide du laser et permettant d'inscrire sous forme de nanostructures des informations non pas dans un vrai cristal mais dans du verre, pour au moins un million d'années. Cela fait penser à la technologie des cristaux-mémoire de Krypton dans Superman.

Found after 10,000 years: the world’s first calendar

Humans had a sophisticated calendrical system thousands of years earlier than previously thought, according to new research.

The discovery is based on a  detailed analysis of data from an archaeological site in northern Scotland – a row of ancient pits which archaeologists believe is the world’s oldest calendar. It is almost five thousand years older than its nearest rival – an ancient calendar from Bronze Age Mesopotamia.

Created by Stone Age Britons some 10,000 years ago, archaeologists believe that the complex of pits was designed to represent the months of the year and the lunar phases of the month. They believe it also allowed the observation of the mid-winter sunrise – in effect the birth of the new year – so that the lunar calendar could be annually re-calibrated to bring it back into line with the solar year.

Remarkably the monument was in use for some 4,000 years – from around 8,000BC (the early Mesolithic period)  to around 4,000BC (the early Neolithic).
