The purposes of H+Pedia

The primary purpose of H+Pedia is to spread accurate, accessible, non-sensationalistic information about transhumanism among the general public. H+Pedia is also an opportunity for transhumanist enthusiasts to work together, thereby strengthening the transhumanist community. H+Pedia welcomes constructive contributions from everyone interested in the future of humanity.

What's it all about?

H+Pedia aims to follow the principles of Wikipedia. At the same time, the H+Pedia editorial team seek to demonstrate greater awareness and appreciation of transhumanism and radical futurism. This will be reflected by the inclusion in H+Pedia of material which might not pass the Wikipedia tests for notability, as currently applied by Wikipedia editors. The guiding principles of H+Pedia are described in more detail in H+Pedia principles.

H+Pedia is sponsored by the following organisations:

The project focuses on techno-optimistic and realistic futuristic thought and trend analysis, rather than taking a popularist position that dystopian scenarios are inevitable and unavoidable.

Original research is welcomed at H+Pedia, however such contributions are expected to draw heavily upon reliable resources and other internal H+Pedia references.

Users who hold a specialist interest or expertise are invited to write about this on their user page or article page to better contextualise their contributions.
