TRANSHUMAN & SINGULARITY
By admin on Feb 15, 2011 | In Human Survival
You may be asking what does this Transhuman Singluarity mean?
Well, Transhuman implies transitional, or transformational humans. Human beings enhanced or changed by technology, but still recognizable as being human. Singularity is the Technological Singularity (not to be confused with a black hole), which is a convergence of technologies leading to a point beyond which there is maximum change and advancement is extremely rapid (exponential growth as opposed to linear). Some believe this may involve the creation of self improving Artificial Intellegence.
So I have merged these two topic subjects to imply the transhuman singularity is a rapid enhancement of humans by technology leading to the unpredictable posthuman(s) through the integration of humans with artificial intelligence, cyborg implants, life extension treatments, virtual reality augmentation, mind uploading, and space migration technologies.
The results of this are very speculative, and hence I have written science fiction stories to describe this. The dangers are many, possible extinction, but the rewards are just as great, immortality, god-like powers, and super knowledge.
