Red flag exactly; Big Pharma wouldn't let their profits disappear. This will be just another treatment...never are "cures" found

A more plausible reason for caution than any so far discussed here:


By creating enhanced humans to counter ASI (an ethically problematic idea unto itself, as humans cannot be treated as a means to an end), we’re essentially creating the exact problem we’re trying to solve. There’s no guarantee that a radically cognitively-enhanced human will be safe, containable, or have goals and motivations compatible with human interests. These posthumans may come up with their own goals, or break-off into self-interested groups, each with its own agenda. Rivalries and technological arms races could emerge at levels greater than ever before.
