No death and an enhanced life: Is the future transhuman?

He aims of the transhumanist movement are summed up by Mark O’Connell in his book To Be a Machine, which last week won the Wellcome Book Prize.  

That we can and should eliminate ageing as a reason of death; that we can and should use knowledge to augment our bodies and our minds; that we can and should merge with machines, remaking ourselves, finally, in the image of our own higher ideals according to his belief.

The idea of technologically enhancing our bodies is not new, but transhumanists take the concept to extend. We absolute devices such as inquiry aid wooden legs, glasses and false teeth in last few years.

We strength use implants to augment our senses so we boost our cognitive processes by connecting ourselves to memory chips in coming few years.  Science will create humans who have greatly amplified intelligence by merging man and machine, strength, and lifespans; a near personification of gods.

According to artificial intelligence expert Blay Whitby Sussex University.  Little different type of sports we are approaching the time athletes who run on carbon-fibre blades will be able outperforms those who run on natural legs.

As O’Connell’s book indicates, the ambitions of transhumanism are now increasing up our intellectual agenda. But this is a debate that is only just beginning.

Not everyone in the field agrees with this view, however.   Sees no problem in appreciative the removal of natural limbs and their replacement with artificial blades.

“What is wrong with replacing defective bits of your body with artificial parts that will allow you to perform better – or which might permit you to live longer?” according to Kevin Warwick Cybernetics expert.

 

Cybernetics enthusiast Warwick who, last few years, has had quite a few different electronic devices implanted into his body. “One allowed me to experience ultrasonic inputs.

It gave me a bat sense, as it were.  My nervous system also interfaced with my computer that’s why I control a robot hand and experience what it was touching. I did that when I was in New York, but the hand was in a lab in England.
