There is a growing subculture of do-it-yourself cyborgs who want to push the limits of human potential by implanting technology into their bodies, expanding their senses and ability to interact with the world.
Do it yourself cyborgs?
In the recently published book “State of Mind”by Sven Michael Davison, he details a world where upgrading the human body is the norm. He flash-forwards eighteen years from now to show us what an enhanced society could look like and how technology will effect our daily lives.
“The Verge’s story is a fascinating window into a niche group of people who have no fear or reservation about augmenting their bodies with technology, but for the rest of us there is need for hesitation,” says author Sven Davison. “There’s forbidden fruit in every garden of Eden.”
Genesis 3:2-5 (NKJV)
2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden; 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’”
4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die. 5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
That was Kurzweil’s real secret, and back in 1965 nobody guessed it. Maybe not even him, not yet. But now, 46 years later, Kurzweil believes that we’re approaching a moment when computers will become intelligent, and not just intelligent but more intelligent than humans. When that happens, humanity — our bodies, our minds, our civilization — will be completely and irreversibly transformed. He believes that this moment is not only inevitable but imminent. According to his calculations, the end of human civilization as we know it is about 35 years away.
Ecclesiastes 1:9 (NKJV)
9 That which has been is what will be,
That which is done is what will be done,
And there is nothing new under the sun.
