Transhumanism

Transhumanism

Oh, and I thought Science Fiction writers were paranoid. This video though takes paranoia to a new height- only outstripped by the melodrama. Even so, the questions posed are worth considering.

While I find the religious over-lay presented here to be hyperbole at best, Tom Horn does go out of his way to present the benefits of both Transhumanism and Transgenics.

But with everything that is good, there is something else that is bad, or at least, misused. So here is one take on both Transhumanism and Transgenics:

Transhumanism and Transgenic Hybrid Mutations — with Tom Horn

In recent years, astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of humanity toward far-reaching morphological transformation that promises in the very near future to redefine what it means to be human. An international, intellectual, and fast-growing cultural movement known as transhumanism intends the use of genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence, and nanotechnology (Grin technologies) as tools that will radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps—as Joel Garreau in his best-selling book, Radical Evolution, claims—our very souls. The technological, cultural, and metaphysical shift now underway unapologetically forecasts a future dominated by this new species of unrecognizably superior humans, and applications under study now to make this dream a reality are being funded by thousands of government and private research facilities around the world. As the reader will learn, this includes, among other things, rewriting human dna and combining humans with beasts, a fact that some university studies and transhumanists believe will not only alter our bodies and souls but ultimately could open a door to contact with unseen intelligence.
