    How does the futuristic drive to enhance humans beyond their most worrying biological limits using technological means relate to faith-based approaches to humanity’s worldly limits?

    The “drive to enhance humans beyond their most worrying biological limits” may or may not have a technological solution. A very great, even hubristic presumption far from being able to demonstrate itself. Yet while such techno dreaming takes it course, ‘moral enhancement’ trials are already underway offering the Promise of literal transcendence of our biological limits within a new, radically different spiritual paradigm. One able to be realized in the here and now. And with profound implications for both humanity and the future of our planet. With apologizes to Shakespeare: To test or not to test, that is the question?


    This dream of transhumanism overcoming deterioration and death is a belief based on accelerating science and technology. It is dependent on enough people and scientists believing so it can have the resources to accomplish the goals. It is a bit like the words to the old John Lennon tune “Imagine” imagine….I hope you join us soon. The sooner the better. Otherwise a lot of people of the current generations will miss out, on gaining greater longevity but maybe more acceptance in the future could fulfill the dreams of those future generations. If people of current generations think it absurd or crazy then that will be self fulfilling. Also the opposite is possible.
