Who: Keynote speakers for the conference include former director of the World Transhumanist Association, James Hughes; author of the Transhumanist Manifesto, Max More; and renowned LDS scholar and author, TerrylGivens. Sponsors of the conference are the Mormon Transhumanist Association and the Transhumanist Alliance of Utah.

Online Mathematics instructor who wants to get back into full time physics research. Right now, I can just do a little research in my spare time. Radio waves and microwaves with orbital angular momentum will be big, aka 'twisted' radio waves.
The possibility is that we will be able to double, triple, or indefinitely increase the E/M spectrum with better and better antennas. I am focusing on unique antennas that exploit this.

INFJ on the Myers Brigg test and a Blue with a lot of Red in the Hartman color code. All that makes me a lover, a fighter, a physicist and at heart, in a way, a mystic.
