Carlos Lavagnino was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, launched in 1993 the group Riorevuelto.org, an autogestive innovation platform that has been developing an integrated, sustainable system of philosophical, technological, situational and relational components. From there, a wide range of complexities were faced, like transhumanism, Artificial Intelligence, operative philosophies for the individual, organic food initiatives, among other strategic ideas. He co-founded the main online community of AI in Argentina, Inteligencia Artifical Argentina (IAAR), coordinates its Debate Cluster and founded Culturas del Transhumanismo Crítico (CTC), the most important transhumanist Meet Up in Latin America, featuring weekly public meetings and debates.
"Autoculture, Organic AI and Posthuman Praxis"
Besides the apparent proliferation of a tumultuous ecosystem of posthuman ideas and forces, inertial Central Culture, representative of sedimentary mainstream Humanity has been showing a remarkable ability to retain most of its previous symbolic incidence, modulating incoming tendencies and driving them into a channel where their behaviour seems to lose many of its disruptive attributes. This phenomenon unveils a probably unprecedented organic tension between the age’s main actors, that requires a language of structural characterization that aims to visualize the otherwise hidden dynamics involved in this extreme evolutionary scenery. This language is proposed to include a series of features: first, a deep decentralized orientation, attentive to the fact that Central Culture main tactical recurrence seems to be based in a very effective “central clause” prerogative aimed to defuse emancipation. Second, because of its individual oriented basis, it should serve to the posthuman entity both as an autonomous cultural generation device, providing meaning, values and motivation, and also as a practical and operative platform to engage with a world of complexities but liberated from (and also unprotected by) the protocols of humanism. Finally, this language should allow the posthuman to challenge the process of life itself, transforming it from a provision to an imperative of agency and value, making possible to recognize himself as a life system.
