Argonauts: Memes and Policies

These are the Argonauts’ core memes. Individual argonauts might be motivated by some or all of them.

• Social Responsibility: Scientists must be held to professional standards, especially as technology becomes more enabling and potent. Profit or political/military gain should not be the deciding factor in which technologies are pursued; whatever benefits transhumanity most should prevail.

• Opposing Government/Corporate Intervention in Science: Science should not be limited or restrained on ideological grounds.

• Neutrality: Argonauts can offer their consulting services to governments or corps on a nonalignedbasis.

• Information Freedom: Governments, corporations, and polities should be transparent in their dealings. Transhumanity has a compelling interest in open access to some information, including scientific findings.

• Open Source Society: Support for open source information, libraries, and projects—particularly tools and building blocks for emerging technologies. Argonaut consultants should encourage open sourcing of discoveries or knowhow as a form of payment for consulting services.

• Technoprogressivism: Argonauts should pursue research in order to democratically improve the transhuman condition.
