Beyond Human: The Transhumanist Movement and You; James Croft, Leader in Training

Imagine your limbs replaced with technologies that make you far stronger and faster than you are now. Imagine your mind directly connected to a network giving you access to all of human knowledge, instantly. Imagine being uploaded into a computer, so that you can transcend entirely the limitations of your physical body. Imagine the death of death. All these things and more are promised by the devotees of “transhumanism,” a movement that believes advances in technology will so change the nature of human life that we will become something different, beyond human. What are the ethical implications of the transhumanist view? How plausible is it? What might it mean for your life? Leader-in-training James Croft explores these questions and more.
