Transhumanism - Something To Ponder Actually, transhumanism is a way of thinking onto the future that is based on premise that humankind in their current form does not represent the last stage of development but rather, the early stage. It can be viewed as well like extension of humanism to which it is derived partially. Humanists believe that individuals matter, that humans matter and though we may not be perfect but, it is possible to make things better by means of promoting freedom, democracy, rational thinking, tolerance and concern for fellow human beings. Moreover, transhumanists agree with this argument but it is emphasizing the potential we have to become. Transhumanism are seen also as an intellectual and cultural movement with a belief that it is possible and our responsibility to improve human conditions via the implementation of advanced technologies. Among the core concepts of such thinking is life extension by doing nanotechnology, genetic engineering, cloning and several other emerging technologies. And with such, it creates a possibility that humans in the future can achieve eternal life. At the same time, transhumanists are interested with the development of technologies that can boost our intellectual, physical and even psychological capabilities that's beyond what humans are capable of. How I Became An Expert on Professionals Transcranial direct current stimulation or simply known as tDCS for instance is speeding up the reaction time and the learning speed by running a weak electric current in the brain. And whether you believe it or not, this has been used already by the US military in training their snipers. On more extreme side, transhumanism deals with the concept of uploading to a computer and what happens when we have created a computer that posseses greater than human intelligence. A 10-Point Plan for Experts (Without Being Overwhelmed) Beyond the obvious benefits of having superhuman strengths or eternal life, the ethical pitfall as well as potential dangers of human enhancement at the same time is investigated by transhumanism. One example that is being examined is life extension to which when every individual has suddenly stopped dying, this can cause problems of overpopulation that could trigger dramatic and rapid socioeconomic disaster. Unless we have stopped giving birth, well of course, this will just open another issue. Both humanity and society will keep growing and evolving or, it will stagnate and be suffocated by the accumulated ego of demagogues and ego of intellectuals who just won't die without death and birth. Similarly, if just the wealthy have access to strength boosting drugs, intelligence and technologies what will just happen in our society, should be that everyone has right to enhance their intellect, will the society still runs smoothly if almost everyone had had IQ of more than 300 and 5 doctorate degrees?
