Transhumanism

This pretty thought-provoking video comes courtesy of the British Institute of Posthuman Studies. In it, the writers explore the crossroads of philosophy and technology and beg the question: What would happen if we fundamentally alter our intellectual, physical, and psychological capabilities, and is the idea of developing super-human intelligence a good or a bad thing?

While this doesn’t necessarily mirror what we believe in as a company (read: we do not want to implant chips in anyone’s brain… except for maybe Pugstopher), there are a lot of interesting tie-ins to the #IoT movement–specifically from about minute 4:20 forward.

We’re curious: Does this excite you? Terrify you? Make you want to dust off your Aldus Huxley collection? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
