Submission + - "Death is Wrong", Argues Futuristic New Children's Book->

destinyland writes: Hoping to inspire life-extending medical research, science fiction author Gennady Stolyarov has launched a campaign to give away 1,000 free copies of his transhumanist picture book for children, "Death is Wrong". "My greatest fear about the future is not of technology running out of control or posing existential risks to humankind," he explains online. "Rather, my greatest fear is that, in the year 2045, I will be...wondering, 'What happened to that Singularity we were promised by now...?'" Along with recent scientific discoveries, the book tells its young readers about long-lived plants and animals "that point the way toward lengthening lifespans in humans," in an attempt to avoid a future where children "would pay no more attention to technological progress and life-extension possibilities than their predecessors did."
