Transhumanism – equality & human evolution

Transhumanism — a question of equality and evolution

The accelerating rate of change in technology — including VR, MR and Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs) — will make many science fiction ideas science fact. As well as using technology to extend our lives, we will use technology to enhance our capabilities.

“Transhumanists view human nature as a work-in-progress, a half-baked beginning that we can learn to remold in desirable ways” says Nick Bostrom, philosopher at University of Oxford’s Future of Humanity Institute.

The possibilities include a radical extension of human health-span, eradication of disease, telepathy and augmentation of human intellect or physical and emotional capacities. In this brave new world of transhumans, the new fight for fairness might not be between man and woman, but ordinary human and this new, enhanced transhuman.
