FC: Transhumanism | 2012

3: "Transhumanism is an international intellectual and cultural movement that affirms the possibility and desirability of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to eliminate aging and to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities."

4: "Transhumanism is not a philosophy with a fixed set of dogmas. What distinguishes transhumanists, in addition to their broadly technophiliac values, is the sort of problems they explore. These include subject matter as far-reaching as the future of intelligent life, as well as much more narrow questions about present-day scientific, technological or social developments."

7: Don't think: Look! -Ludwig Wittgenstein

15: "The transhumanist perspective obviously differs from the humanist mainstream by having a specific focus on technological approaches to resolving human concerns. Transhumanists view orthodox humanism as only going half way: we reject the supernatural, but then do nothing to address the human longings which give rise to spirituality. Transhumanists unabashedly assert that, without gods, it is up to humanity to "play God," striving to achieve for humanity a total control over its physical and mental state that is in some ways similar to that promised in supernatural beliefs. The actualization of this vision for humanity results in a metamorphosis into what transhumanists refer to as "post-human." "
