Hello everyone ,

Some people argue transhumanism is the future of the mankind but it all seems very dangerous and unrealistic to me.. I'd be curious to know what you guys think of it?

Transhumanism is an international cultural and intellectual movement advocating the use of science and technology to improve the human condition, in particular by increasing the physical and mental capacities of human beings. We live in a world where technology grows more and more every day, so it is no wonder that some are considering the idea of ​​developing our capabilities directly in our bodies.
This idea seems familiar to us, we have all already seen transhumanism in certain films like matrix and blade runner or neon genesis evangelion and ghost in shell for animations. These films and animations date from the 80's to the 00’s at the start of the technological revolution, transhumanism seemed unreal but it seems less and less unreal now.
There are already prostheses for people missing a limb that have been tested and approved and that’s revolutionary.
People have also had multi-functional chips implanted, to pay for the train for example but in my opinion this looks more scary. I think for people in real need, transhumanism may be beneficial but in the other cases I think it's too much.
Do we really need all this?
Who would accept to have a chip implanted in order to be able to pay without a card? I think we are always looking for more and the technology is of course revolutionary but to the point of using it to improve our intelligence or our physical capacities, I think with all this we would lose our own humanity. We are made to create new things but humans do not need more intelligence, without our faults we would be machines.

Transhumanism is a movement using technology and science to improve the human condition,increasing physical and mental capacities of human beings.Nowadays technology evolve a lot and allows us to do many things like use mobile phone,surf on web Thanks to transhumanism there are protheses which replaces the lack of a limb in some people like a leg or an arm , there are also a chip implanted which can be implanted into our skin and allows us to unlock a door ,buy train ticket but there are many risks because it collect data and know more about confidential information that is why I think technology is a future of the mankind but it can be dangerous and it not always necessary because we can do many things without technology like unlock a door or buy ticket for train

Transhumanism is about people who want to change a part of their body have a better life and live longer. It’s very useful for people with disabilities, they can replace the disabled limb with a prothesis. You can also use transhumanism to improve your own abilities like better eyes for example.
Yes, for the moment it’s a just a dream to live forever with transhumanism but it could maybe be possible in the future. The future of the mankind will probably be the transhumanism because we will probably become cyborgs with improved senses.
Today, protheses are becoming more and more efficient and similar to a real human limb. There are also things like microchips: it’s under your skin and can be used for a lot of things like opening your house’s door. Nevertheless, this microchip got a lot of imperfections. First, we don’t really know the danger on our health, like a microchip made of metal and emits waves under our skin. It can also be dangerous for our private data which might not be as private as we think.
For me, transhumanism well exploited can really be the future of the mankind. Therefore, we just need to focus the searches on the most important things for the future.

Transhumanism is about people who want to improve themselves by changing some parts of their body in order to live better and longer or to have better abilities. Indeed, it could change the life of amputees and disabled people by providing them bionic limbs. Moreover, it could allow us to live forever and never die. It can also be useful for everyday life thanks to microchips implanted under our skin that can open a door or store e-tickets for the train for example.
However, these technologies might lead to health issues and create cancers or tumors. They have many other faults: microchips could carry risks for user’s privacy because it could be use to collect people’s personal data. It also can be very expensive if you need to upgrade it.
Finally, I think transhumanism can be very useful in specific uses like helping disabled people to live a normal life. But for others people, these technologies are not necessary or vital and we can live without it. Besides being not very useful, transhumanism can also lead to dangerous issues. If we all become immortal, the Earth will be overcrowded and there won’t be enough resources for everyone. That’s why I don’t think transhumanism is the future of mankind.

The transhumanism serves to evolve the humans by bringing them some modification thanks to the new technology and the new science.It’s an intellectual movement that promotes the improvement of the physical and mental characteristics of human beings.Transhumanism finds solutions to the difficulties that Transhumanism in my opinion could play an important role in the future or even today can be encountered through out our lives, such as disability, illness or the vigil or even death. Transhumanism can play a role in medicine, the army and science.Transhumanism develops especially in the Anglo-Saxon countries notably the United States that develop the know-how within Silicon Valley, The United Kingdom is also pushing its research on transhumanism Many countries push their research to be able to improve transhumanism my other countries see transhumanism as a danger for humanity. Transhumanism is much criticized however many people hope for a change of mentality to be able to see the goods of transhumanism In my opinion transhumanism can be beneficial as it can be dangerous because everything that is robotic with the new technology can harm our health because there can be a disturbance that can put us in danger Technology or robots cannot be trusted

Transhumanism is when people change their body part to live better and longer.

There is differents uses of transhumanism.
First, people can use transhumanism to improve their abilities. Next, people want to live forever and never die. Moreover, transhumanism is using in medicine. Indeed, it can change the life of disabilities people for example amputees people can have bionics members. In addition, microchips are implanted under the skin to help people everyday like open the door with the microchips.

According to me, I am reserved. In fact, today the technology live with us and we cannot slow the progress. For example, today some people live with internet or a phone. 100 years ago, I think people was worried like us today. But finaly, a lot of people live with the technology.

Even if some use of transhumanism are not vital. For example,  if everyone would live forever, there is a risks to have overpopulation or the microchips to help people everyday: everyone can open the door. However, for disabilities people, microchips is useful. I think it is selfish because we don't think to future generation. I belive some uses of transhumanism in medicine are a good things. For example, transhumanism can help arm of amputees or disabilities to live better. If some people can feel better, we need to try and develop in the future.
Of course, it is not without risks, we need to be carefull. But every things that the human create are not without risks. So we need to try.

I think in the future, transhumanism will become normal like the older technology for example have a phone.

Transhumanism : the future of mankind?  Empty Transhumanism

First, transhumanism is about people who wish to change a body part. On the one hand, transhumanism is very useful for people who had an accident or for people who have a limb missing because thanks to it, these persons can have protheses or artificial limbs and that opens a new horizon of possibilities. On the other hand, transhumanism is convenient and efficient for people who want to improve their abilities. For example, they can have surgery to have better eyes. Then, transhumanism is also about people who want to live longer (never die) and better. Indeed, transhumanism is able to change people's mood but also to improve human's physical and intellectual capacities. For example, to have super speed. In fact, transhumanism is very innovative and modern.
However, transhumanism presents several negative things too. For instance, some people think that transhumanism is not very realistic and I'm agree with us because some operations, some things seem to me impossible (for example: live forever). In addition, there are operations very expensive (implanting a microchip costs 1050 euros) and dangerous for people's health. For instance, in Sweden, a lot of young people implanted a microchip under their skin and it might to create cancers or tumors. Moreover, other problems still exist like because of microchips, there are some risks for people's privacy and also the fact that transhumanism would lead to overpopulation.
Nevertheless, even though I think that transhumanism is dangerous, unrealistic sometimes , in my opinion it is the future of the mankind because transhumanism is very innovative and the society is more and more modern so I think it is possible. What's more, some operations already exist.

Transhumanism : the future of mankind?  Empty -My oppinion about transhumanism-

le Mar 26 Mai - 2:25
Transhumanism is the future, I’m sure of it. We can’t stop the progress, we can only control it. My opinion about transhumanism is quite divided. First transhumanism is useful. It helps people with disabilities, there are prosthetics devices like limbs with time they get stronger, more real, and easy to set up and coordinate with the body. Also we already leave with tranhulanism, hearings aids, glasses, they are so many things that we forget but it change the daily life of millions of people around the world, help them every day to live a normal life.
However thanshumanism evolves, stuff like microchips allow you to do classic things like unlocking your car, paying in stores, control your house or knowing the time. But these are implanted under your skin and there are no research about the risk, is it dangerous for your health, with the waves, or the materials. Or people could use them to track us, listening our conversations, spying your lives. I accord you, it’s paranoid though but we don’t know the future.
Well, what do I think of it?  I’m divided, transhumanism is good, it helps that’s a fact no one can ignore. So yeah I’m for, fix people problems, this is one of the purpose of science, create solutions to improve life, or to live a life this should be for me transhumanism. Unfortunately this isn’t, we saw it with microchips, have keys for the car, cards to pays, or switches for the lights isn’t a problem. I think that transhumanism is going in a way to fix problems that do not exist, to “help” people who don’t. And then it could be dangerous for our private life’s, for our safety, for our liberty.
I think transhumanism is useful, very interesting, and we only discover a tiny part of it but takes a dangerous path, so we’ll see in decades what it looks.
