"The Welfarist Approach to Enhancement: “Enhancement” should be defined to mean any change in the biology or psychology of a person which increases the chances of leading a good life in a given set of circumstances."

"On this account, in order for an intervention to count as an enhancement, it does not matter if the capacity itself is being modified “up” or being modified “down.” Nor does it matter if the modification is being accomplished by means5 of a drug, a biochip, an electrical brain-stimulator, or something more familiar and lower tech. Nor does it matter if the intervention is called “medicine” or “therapy” or “beyond therapy” or anything else. If it increases the person's chances of leading a good life in the relevant circumstances, then we propose that it should be considered an enhancement."

"Humans become what we are by struggling with a natural, physical world that does not immediately respond to our desires. The world resists us, and demands that we flow with it, and deal honestly with the organic. When we enframe the organic, transforming it into more mechanical technology to be readily manipulated, we lose that orientation. When our own bodies become enframed through a technology that defies even death, what will become, for example, of the desire for transcendence that has been one of the most historically powerful forces leading to the creation of art, philosophy, and drives the need for making interpersonal connections? What happens when the development of identity is enframed within an economy of commodification in which we buy alterations of our identity?"

Despite the warnings of visionaries like Stephen Hawking and Bill Gates, today’s artificial intelligence is still tethered to human controllers.

Machine learning for brain gene networks
Researchers have trained a computer to crunch big biomedical data in order to recognize how genes work together in human tissues. Combining genomic data from 38,000 experiments, this research group has generated functional genetic maps for 144 human tissues types and organs. This big step in the use of large genomic data sets enables great strides in functional human genetics, with important applications for treatment of disease. The findings she...

A Knowmad in the Infoverse - A nascent Polytopia
Introduction
Polytopia Project Founder, evolving the meta-concept of collaboration, towards an increase in combined interactive intelligence. Designing the thought infrastructure for a nascent cyber civilization.
-
Shifts in thought, shifts in perception, shifts in paradigms, all shifts happen simultaneously and concomitantly, some we see and some we don’t, some of these shifts are gradual and some of these shifts are sudden. Our task here then is to contain both kinds, to uphold a view that is floating above the fray and yet intertwines with the fleeting moment of eternality we call now. The shifts that are coming upon us are disrupting the ways of old in the most positive way possible; they are finally rearranging our modes of thought and basic worldviews.

We are entering a new and distinct period in history, the era of the Cyber Soaring Humanity.

From : Cyber Soaring Humanity, or The rise of the Cyber Unified Civilization

which continues here: The Natural Asymmetry of Infocologies

and then here: This mountain has no top

then: Hybrid futures, Knowmads and the Notion state
