FM-2030 transhumanist (originally born as Fereidoun M. Esfandiary)

Recommended Posts

 Stumbled across this character - FM-2030 


Born in 1930 - wanted to celebrate his 100 year birthday - hence his chosen new name.

But, on July 8, 2000, FM-2030 died from pancreatic cancer and was placed in cryonic suspension at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona, where his body remains today. He did not yet have remote standby arrangements, so no Alcor team member was present at his death, but FM-2030 was the first person to be vitrified, rather than simply frozen as previous cryonics patients had been. 

There's a Youtube channel dedicated to him and the film / documentary about him / it and his ideas; https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLTDbY-3PBVC_25495xsclw/featured 

The film is simply called "2030" which has heavy connotations with the Agenda 2030 name.

The full film made by Johnny Boston is elusive - l cannot find it available for free online - it can be confused with a few films / documentaries with 2030 in or as the title.

This is from the trailer;
"Johnny Boston was 10 years old when he first met FM-2030, a futurist who intended to live forever. But in 2000, after his body ceased to function, FM was cryonically preserved. 16 years later, an unexpected call places FM's future in Johnny's hands."

btw Legion, were you known as somebody else on DI here for some considerable time?

I won't ask anymore than that in public, to protect what might be private *in general* but I hope this is ok to ask..... I recognize your avatar is all I'll say - nothing bad why I observe this of course - just curious - (the av now is the same as then but non-animated it used to be... Not rocket science of course to remember such, so this is why I figure it's okay to ask!)....
If I should have wrote this in a PM, sorry, but my inbox is full.
