Transhumanism is never easy. It hasn’t been thus far, and will only get tougher as we get ever closer to shedding more of our skin and humanity for the pursuit of greatness and connectivity. Many have suggested that by 2030, 2050, or even 2070; that humanity will reached a singularity point in our evolution and technology where we will ‘improve’ ourselves with bioware, cyberware, and nanotechnology to become faster, stonger, hardier, and of course…more intelligent. We will also presumably have the technology to allow us to prolong our lives indefinitely through various formats.
We will cheat death and mother nature’s design for these frail sacks of flesh and bone.
As a reader, I have always been fascinated with the science fiction in this vein. As a fiction writer, it has also become one of my chosen rotes. I love the cyberpunk brand of mythology and fiction.
Sadly, I’ve run out of time for now; but will probably post a continuation later today or tonight.
