The 2018 conference of the Mormon Transhumanist Association
Saturday 7 April 2018 from 9:00am to 9:00pm in Provo, Utah, at the Provo Marriott Hotel and Conference Center.
The theme of the conference is “Worlds without Number.” As one of few post-enlightenment religions, Mormonism emerged in a context of exploding human awareness of the surrounding universe, and its canon reflects this.
These worlds are reflected not only in the night sky, but also in numerous stories and narratives that humans have recounted to one another from their earliest beginnings. Keenly aware of their own vulnerability and solitude in an ever-expanding universe, they have pondered on the nature of their existence and their relationship to beings both lesser and greater than themselves, adjusting these theologies as they gained greater awareness. Humanity has constantly looked beyond, imagining novel ways of interacting with its environment, new possibilities of being, and summoning its creative powers to articulate these visions in compelling ways.
