2-and with the flip of a switch, be turned into robots, soulless machines
3-tens, even hundreds of thousands of years in the future
you really should read Frank Herberts Dune series, addresses the whole trans-humanism business as a major sub-theme of the whole series *SPOILER
ALERT*: you even get your happy ending: the ultimate Kwisatz Haderach
is a Man-Machine Synthesis and more, with Magical Power as well, it is only the Machine Consciousness
of an AI that merges with the
Consciousness of the K.H. the human body being the ultimate machine already, you see, both Man and Machine have a bit of evolving to do yet,
especially the latter
A.A.Athanasio's Radix is also a great read.
4- not even going to go into the psycho sexual implications...
5-Glossolalia and TP can do this, no machines required, anyone who speaks a human language does it as a baby, depowering social programming is to
blame for "loss" of ability GIGO.
6-creative visualization and lucid dreaming, especially the latter are the ultimate holodeck, if you want to limit yourself to using it for only that,
again, no invasive batteries, machinery, OR electronics required.
why settle for prosthetics? when stem cell tech created from donor-cells from the patient [no fetus required], 3-d bio-printing, and we also now know
that babies and young children possess regenerative capabilities, to an extent [recent thread] why settle for a wooden leg when a real one can be
grown? yet another example of what the Human Body, The Ultimate Chariot of Chaos, is capable of.
8- false, else how did we get this far?
"I teach you the Superman: Man is something to be Overcome. what have you done to Overcome Him?"
seems to me Transhum's are lazy, looking for a cheap, quick fix, why work out, when you can replace your legs with wheels? L
and no i didn't forget:
Humans are soulless flesh machines governed by their internal programming.
you do realize this statement completely invalidates this thread and the concepts/preaching therein?
what would a soulless machine [flesh or otherwise] know about anything?
have you met member Druscilla? she wants to be downloaded into a machine too, i'm surprised you two haven't met
Despisers of the Body, are not bridges to the Superman.
