What is Transhumanism?
I DEFINE Transhumanism (H+) as the attempt to realize and surpass Friedrich Nietzsche's vision of the Overman through technological advancement with the ultimate goal of transcending the shackles of carbon-based life. The endgame for a forward-thinking transhumanist may well be the Omega Point, or the singularity of all information and consciousness.
