Yeah. I'm agreeing with everything you're saying about the New Wave. It seems that Techensteining is a Portmanteau of people turning themselves into Tech Frankensteins by grafting tech on. In the short term, I believe this is to save ADA, who has probably benefitted from the Resistance's surprising Tie at the last anomaly... I just need to see examples of it. Thus far we only have hints.
And, in parallel, I think the ENLNW is not dissimilar to Transhumanism. I suspect that their attempts will be to optimize themselves as kind of a sacrifice to Shaper visions. I'm not putting that well, but you get the idea. I stumbled on this and it seems like pure Shaper material. https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/ESxE3
