Presentation Summary

M Adventures as a pro-life extension US Presidential candidate:
Zoltan Istvan is a 2016 US Presidential candidate of the Transhumanist Party, whose most important platform is creating a government that encourages life extension science. Among the policies his campaign advocates for is treating aging as a disease, taking money from the military and putting it into science, and encouraging the use of bionics and synthetic parts in humans.

Istvan's Transhumanist Bill of Rights was delivered to the US Capitol via his Immortality Bus, a 40 foot vehicle shaped to appear as a coffin. The bus and it's 4 month tour across the country generated much media attention, and was never without a major media journalist on board. In his RAAD speech, Istvan will describe his adventures as a pro-life extension US Presidential candidate.
