The Bio Enhancement Dilemma

Post from August 2, 2016 (↻ March 21, 2019), filed under .

As human enhancements proliferate we will observe that some of the spiritually least developed will become the physically strongest.

While minds (artificial intelligence) may be made temporal, bodies, then, are made everlasting—which is the exact opposite to our current realities, in which minds may be eternal, and bodies finite.

While symptomatic of the externalization of our abilities and skills, this will have a huge impact on our psycho-physical reality. Which is going to be of interest again later.
