The Cyborg Liberation Front

I’ve been watching the transhumanist movement from afar for many years now. I think they can be viewed as a facet of a growing paradox. The technology that allows us to completely engineer human beings into new species is driven into being from the needs and urges to heal human beings. The luddites, religious conservatives and radical environmentalists may not like it, but they are fighting some very basic social urges if they try to ban these emerging techniques. Partly in their defense however, I am skeptical that if the Singularity arrives it will be some great, rosy paradise.
