Whatever the case I look forward to a better world with better, more capable, less disappointing people in it.
Sarcasm aside, you do understand you are wishing for a world you wouldn't fit in..?
Given the ability to self modify; to physically adapt, as well as mentally/cognitively up to the point of even having engineered/printable replacement
bodies, the matter regarding 'fitting in' would likely not be that large a consideration given the variability of human imagination (and the
theoretical expansion of such with modification) where preferences on phenotype expression may very well go the way of fashion with some expressing
what today may be considered outlandishly strange or even frightening and freakish, so, no, 'fitting in' would not likely be a problem.
There may very well occur sociological elements and belief systems based on extremes of species purity, and species modification at both ends of the
spectrum, as well as systems in between, but, all of such is likely quite very far distant in the future.
Still, methinks it'd be fun to print out a human sized velociraptor body for a day to run around with claws clicking, and/or any other variations of
casual, practical, professional, aesthetic, athletic, environmental variability that such post-human possibilities could offer.
