Subject: Origins Of Transhumanism

_One_ of the origins of transhumanism dates back to the L5
Society, founded to promote space colonies in 1975. (My ghod
that's a long time ago!)

Anyway, some of the people involved in those days wrote a long
lost short story which has now been put on a web site.


[This story was written in fits and starts in the years after
the L5 Society was started--in those heady days when we could
envision Solar Power Satellites paying for space colonies. I am
not sure if it was submitted to a publisher.

Not long ago I found a typed copy, scanned it and converted to
HTML. Sorry for any remaining OCR errors.

Brad Barber and I contributed the technology, Carolyn the food
descriptions, Annita the characters and most of the story line.
The authors all wrote on it at times. The technical elements are
long out of date, particularly with respect to nanotechnology
and life extension, though the computer descriptions were not so
far off what has come to be. Think of it as being found in a
time capsule buried in 1978. Keith Henson May 20, 2005]
