The Transhuman Revolution

Scientists and the military are collaborating with futurists and venture capitalists to create a new breed of human, superhumans that transcend our current state through biotechnological augmentation. Science fiction, or science fact?

Science Fiction?

Sources deep within DAARPA have revealed that transhumans are a reality and living among us. However, what some welcome as the next stage in human evolution is still in the early stages of development.


Initial transhuman experiments have shown that chimeras are prone to sociopathic ambition and startling reality cognition dissonance; they lie, constantly, and are typically prone to fits of murderous rage to achieve personal advantage.

A Typical Transhuman Experiment

Others display disturbingly narcissistic behavioral traits while some experiments show an inability to control themselves or think rationally.

New World Order

Will the ongoing attempt to create a new humanity move past these failures into a utopian future of higher humanity, a future defined by a DNA enhanced, germline superclass? A new world order, overseen by gene-spliced supersoldiers?

You, the reader, be the judge,

There is the cyborg trans-human and the tranny-human. I think that's two different things. Jenner-gender's freakish behavior and the Degeneris Degenerate butch don't speak to much of a future for the species.

Then again, I don't know that I'd want to be a cyborg, unless they include missiles, armor, and some cool weapons. Then it might be more interesting.

There's at least two Trans H classes, LL. The Cyborg, which is part human part mech, and the Tranny. Tannies seem to be pretty much the result of chemical enhancement and gene splicing.

The result?

Cait, the ahem "woman" of the year.

Obviously the tech is in its early stages...

LL said...

Yes, the tech is evident in its lack of sophistication.

Thnkk you for the interlude of humor in today's upsidedown world, LSP!

Back to wrapping, boxing, and securing radio gear here in the Comm Center!

LSP said...

LL, we think as one.

LSP said...

My pleasure, drjim!

Good luck packing.

Interesting (and scary) observations.

LSP said...

We have to wonder, Linda.
