About Dwight Gilbert Jones

PRESERVE YOUR GENETIC BLUEPRINT FOR FUTURE REGENERATION

Imagine for a moment that you are on your death bed
, and you are asked a simple question: Have you registered for DNA stewardship, and if not, would you like to now?

If you think your answer would most likely be YES! - consider joining the Humanist Union. The Humanist Union's function is to oversee your DNA stewardship (how well you are preserving your unique existence in this Universe, when fresh life cycles are imminent) and to execute your instructions. The Union plans to build and administer a perpetual, distributed repository for personal DNA samples, preserved for viability and longevity, from any human that has left behind intact DNA. Our Union carries forward each member's instructions and funding for subsequent life cycles, if they specify that option.

For a moment, think of the implications of the fact that, at a site such as www.securigene.com (<$500, no affiliation) you can :  
  1. Order a very high quality, strong sample of your DNA, placed in 
  2. A stainless capsule enclosing hermetically sealed chambers, that will 
  3. Maintain your reproducible DNA for centuries if required, no freezing.
The expectation is that, as a member of the HU, you will commission ectogenesis in the near-future, perhaps the decade following the end of your first life. This is not cloning per se; it is a consequence of the fact that human reproduction is moving outside the womb, and from that point the option to reproduce you will rest in the hands of your smart contracts and Oracles

This Patreon site allows me, as a founding administrator, to
  • address inquiries for the Humanist Union 
  • outline the HU's rationale and projected programs, and
  • gather some membership, committees and a Board of Directors
Please participate and put into place provisions for your next life cycle.

As a futurist writer and philosopher, I often engage in conversations with life extension, transhumanist etc. immortalists who plan to live beyond a conventional lifespan, but I view their efforts as complementary to survival - but insufficient on their own, resulting in the dissolution of their usable DNA, and consequently their disappearance from this Universe. 

My views diverge from theirs, in that they believe the 'Self' is centered in our brain and/or memories. As a philosopher I maintain that the Self is subtended by our DNA (genotype and/or phenotype). Our DNA is our complete, master blueprint, ready for regeneration and a fresh life cycle at any time, with proper stewardship. It is our franchise in life, and it makes no sense to bury or cremate it when extra life cycles are imminent. 

I will elaborate on this schism as we go along, but one implication is immediate for like thinkers - as long as we preserve our DNA through the coming centuries, we shall never truly be dead, and can readily be re-introduced into more lifetimes. We have only to place our seed into the care of each other, knowing that our species no longer has to ask what the purpose of life is. It is a life of purpose - the sudden maturity to realize that the planet we save will be our own.

So life grants itself meaning - the singular promise of sequential life cycles. We are a young species on a verdant Earth, regeneration is the long-awaited reason for our species to bond together, to harmonize with our planet, our sister species, and ourselves. To amicably navigate through the agreed next 1000 summers, without the singular end that bio-death imposes. DNA stewardship buys you all the time needed before cloning becomes mainstream, and one more respected fork in human reproduction. The HU does not plan to clone anyone, now or at anytime.

The Society's role is to keep your genome happening, while we await your instructions. There are no religious or external affiliations beyond responsibility as our credo.

If you agree with this analysis and wish to participate, please join us as a patron within a tier on Patreon, and I'll include my first book on Humanism 'The Humanist - 1000 Summers' (Amazon) and its sequel 'Continuance' with any monthly commitment. I will present a Vol 3 in progress, for your thoughts, and we'll work together from there to build a repository, as described in Volume 1. 

Subsequent tiers to support the Union will range up to an optional blockchain-contracted account, wherein you bequeath funds with the Union, for your continuance toward another life cycle. Our lab services providers utilize the very highest, state of the art DNA technologies, with blockchain contracts underwriting all commitments and the organization.

I am an experienced network designer and founding president of a 1500 member Society (Adult Hockey), and this one is for all the marbles - that I have planned all my life. 

Please join with me to keep life's window open. Do read 'Continuance' to get up to speed, it stands alone, and you can read '1000 Summers' at your leisure.

Goals
0% complete
Once the Society has 100 patrons, committees can be struck to address opportunities and issues around operations, security, public relations, research, and alliances, as they arise.

The intention is to create a private, standing forum limited to members with a commitment to the Humanist Union's evolving programs.
