What if you could live for 10,000 years?

Zoltan Istvan is an American futurist, philosopher, and transhumanist – founder of the Transhumanist Party and its 2016 US Presidential candidate.

"I'm not saying let's live forever," he explains to Zach Weissmueller from Reason TV. "I think what we want is the choice to be able to live indefinitely. That might be 10,000 years; that might only be 170 years."

Istvan has devoted his life to transhumanism after nearly stepping on an old landmine while reporting for the National Geographic channel in Vietnam's demilitarised zone.

"I'd say the number one goal of transhumanism is trying to conquer death," he says.

In this video, Istvan talks about real-world life extension technology ranging from robotic hearts to cryogenic stasis, his plan to run for president under the banner of the Transhumanist party, the overlap between the LGBT movement and transhumanism, and the role that governments play in both aiding and impeding transhumanist goals.
