    It seems that a few English idioms are not within my house for wheels.

    I do appreciate the tender attention to my details.

    Despite my personal doubts regarding transhumanism, that consider historical experience from the failed ,,homo soveticus’’ project, hence the effectiveness and optimality of the problem-solution path, I do find the movement rather refreshing in terms of daring life-approvement absolutism.Voidrunner

    What excites me is a willingness to fuck with the code. It may be a terrible idea, but it's hard for me to expect much from the tired, other ideas that leave the code as it is. I don't expect to live long enough to see any brave new world that might arrive, so it's more of a theoretical-aesthetic point for me.

    I fuck with the code every night. My wife likes it. I'm currently try to change the code (helped by the brain that radiates into the body) of tooth cells and their surroundings so a lost tooth will grow back.

    Don't think it's a moral debate worth having. If it can be done it will be and I don't suspect any of us are going to win an argument with a 400 IQ posthuman with a brain full of cybernetic implants and lab grown add ons, nor prevail against their 9'8 stature, 6 brawny arms, and adamantium bones. So, I'd prefer to join them and be an X-Man too.

    To be sure, God will liquidate them if they are abominations, but this could be the next step in our redemption. The ape brain isn't so good at avoiding sin.

    Plus the Chinese are already looking at it so we have to, and then I'm sure the ETs already did it so humanity has to. It's a highly modified techno dog eats regular bio dog universe out there if Earth is any example.

    I don't understand what this thread is about? We have, and will always, keep on keeping on. I'm sure some people are not 'supportive' about everyone using computers ... so what?

    I don't get what the OP is trying to get to here.

    I am somewhat supportive of transhumanism. I think there are extremes that could be considered outside of my support, similar to how I think of religious fantasism. I think we should take it slow and steady when it comes to converting ourselves into machine entities, if we do. I do think that the only way we are going to survive off our home world is by transitioning our main Sapient Hominoid species over to something purely mechanical or somewhat cyborg. I actually wrote a blog that turned into a short book on what I call "Robot Life." You can find it on amazon. I look forward to reading the posts here. Hearing other people's thoughts on the matter is of some interest to me.
