Transhumanism, Science, and Philosophy

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.” -Charles Darwin

“Man is to be surpassed. He is a bridge, not a destination.” -Nietzsche

“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Who we are is but a stepping stone to what we can become.” -Deus Ex

The Singularity is near. The merging of humans and technology will pave way for the Transhuman, also known as Neohuman.

As Nietzsche once theorized about the ‘Overman':

“I teach you the Overman! Mankind is something to be overcome. What have you done to overcome mankind?

All beings so far have created something beyond themselves. Do you want to be the ebb of that great tide, and revert back to the beast rather than overcome mankind? What is the ape to a man? A laughing-stock, a thing of shame. And just so shall a man be to the Overman: a laughing-stock, a thing of shame.”

The primitive notion of man and biology will be overcome; as Superman is to human. Transhumanism is not fueled by egoism or fear of death. It is the next frontier in human evolution, placing the improvement of the human condition, and its advancement in the universe, at the forefront of the future. Transhumanism is an evolved way of thinking, feeling, functioning, and being.

Transhumanism, much like Transcendentalism, Neohumanism, and Universalism, is the process of Transcendence, or Spiritual Ascendance, that connects the human to its sentient being, or the impersonal presence of the universe expressing itself through infinite self-reflective consciousness via the human vessel; ‘Beyond Human’.

The Transhuman is the merging of biology and technology to better and more accurately express and actualize who we truly are without being restricted by the limited system (human body/biology) that has operated us. It is how the telegraph has evolved to a smartphone, while still remaining true to its essence (a vessel for sound waves/communication). Biology and chemistry have given us the blueprint, a foundation for technology to enhance ourselves and the way we live. Transhumanism is the full realization and fruition of ‘beings’ being ‘human’.

A consciousness evolution (Fragmented Awareness to Cosmic Consciousness), stimulated through self-realization/reflection and the taming of ego (from a wild animal to a man's best friend), while emphasizing a rational and empathetic perspective (the elevation and balance of Logical and Emotional Intelligence – Masculinity and Femininity), is a significant aspect of Transcendence and the transition from Human to Transhuman.

Advancements in technology, as the Singularity and Transhumanism propose, will also positively impact and benefit all life on our planet, including nature and animals.

Transhumanism is not fueled by the fear of dying, but by the love of living.
