BIRTH OF THE SUPERHUMAN. THE ERA OF POSTHUMANISM
Share

We are all witnessing the striking transition of the idea of the superman from the category of philosophical meditation to practical implementation, becoming a mere set of scientific and technical tasks. There is no doubt that physical modification of human beings will take place, sooner or later. Even today there exists technology to edit the human genome - biohacking, and this process will lead to a total change in human nature. What will happen if humans and artificial intelligence are made into a single unified? Will a superman be something self-reliant and independent from human nature or will it be the embodiment of super-humanism? Will it be dangerous to human civilization?
