Transhumanism is a black hole of fiction

The post at

takes transhumanism pretty seriously.

In my experience, transhumanism is mostly about fiction. Yeah, there are a couple of people with good artificial legs, and soon we might have a decent artificial eye. But transhumanism is basically a bunch of New Wave sci-fi writers who can’t live up to Lem and PKD, so they get grotesque.

When we get closer to real-life transhumanism I’ll take it a little more seriously.
