Through the World Future Society, author/writer, Hank Pellissier, in concert with Teresa Dal Santo, Ph.D., Research Associate with the University of California at San Francisco, conducted a 100-question survey (using surveymonkey.com) of 818 Transhumanists on what their (and in essence, our) future holds. The online survey took place over eight days during July 2012. An expert in qualitative and quantitative studies and statistical analysis, Dr. Teresa Dal Santo’s report illuminates what Transhumanists believe, hope for, and predict for the future with a particular focus is an inquiry into their ideas about radical life extension and immortality.
