How do you feel about Transhumanism?

I've been aware of the concept for a long time but assuming it was so far down the road, a few generations at least, I didn't give it much thought i the realm of reality. Then I get a jolt the concept is bugging the heck out of me that it could be becoming a reality in the very near future.

A scene from Years and Years. The damned emoji face annoyed me.

The Bionic Contact lens

“We have developed the Bionic lens to, in its default mode, make our lives function better in their normal realm and in its augmented capacity to allow for us to integrate seamlessly with the entire digital world. […] My humble perception is, that us human beings will be the center of artificial intelligence activity. So, I believe that we are going to filter and chaperon artificial intelligence that will be either around our head, or on our watch, or maybe both. So, it is, if you will, augmenting the human beyond what we normally anticipate.”

Phone technology could be implanted in your body
That’s right, implanted! This might sound like science gone mad, but this type of technology could become a reality.

At a recent think tank of global industry leaders were recently interviewed by the World Economic Forum. Their answers to this survey give the rest of us mere mortals a glimpse into our global society’s technological future.

It’s not really a stretch to imagine. We already have devices connected to the Internet through wireless technology, 3D printing of human tissue, and artificial intelligence (AI).

GENERAL INFORMATION
Will Mobile Phone Implants Really Be A Thing?
RyanJuly 7, 20173 comments4 min read


We simply can’t live without our cell phones. Can you imagine being any more attached to your phone than you are now? Well, get ready, because new technology might mean that you are literally attached to your phone 24/7, 365 days a year.

It’s not really a stretch to imagine. We already have devices connected to the Internet through wireless technology, 3D printing of human tissue, and artificial intelligence (AI).



Many world tech leaders describe this as the coming of the “Second Machine Age”. In the Industrial Age, inventions like the steam engine and machinery for factories gave humans muscle power. The second Machine age gives humans brain power through the massive advances that computing has to offer.

There are lots of other implantable devices that are already using wireless technology. One example is a pacemaker that collects data. People keep a desktop device nearby, and download data for their doctor to review.

The first known prototype for an implantable cell phone came from designers at the Royal College of Art in London in 2002. Basically, their design involved an implantable chip that had a receiver that could pick up signals from a mobile phone. The device also contained a transducer that would convert the signal into vibrations. The idea was to implant the device into a person’s tooth; the tooth would vibrate when it picked up the radio signals from the phone. The vibrations would then travel along the jawbone to the inner ear, and the person would perceive it as sound. It was a private call; no one else could detect the phone signal.

Around the World Economic Forum congregation in Davos, about 800 experts and executives have been surveyed on the overarching trends that will shape the technology of the future, and two years piqued our attention in their predictions - 2022 and 2023. As you can see in the timeline below, 2022 is dubbed as the threshold year when wearable Internet is forecast to reach its tipping point. The next year, the experts expect the same thing to happen with three other trends - implantable technologies, vision as the new interface, and having a super computer (by today's standards) in your pocket.

I really don't get why you're posting random conspiracy theory videos from random individuals on this thread. Is this somehow interfering with your life in some kind of way?

The topic is transhumanism so I've posted some links relating to transhumanism. Yeah, a real tough one to work out.

The third link I posted, the lecture by Sofia Smallstorm, explains the possible connections. It's only about an hour long.
