WHAT IS TRANSHUMANISM?

Post #53

Transhumanism is a way of thinking about the future that is based on the premise that the human species in its current form does not represent the end of our development but rather a comparatively early phase. A definition by Max Moore (1990) is Transhumanism is a class of philosophies of life that seek the continuation and acceleration of the evolution of intelligent life beyond its currently human form and human limitations by means of science and technology, guided by life-promoting principles and values.

Transhumanists agree that can we use rational means to improve the human condition and the external world. Transhumanists wish to improve humans so that we not limited to traditional humanistic methods, such as education, cultural development, and even our biological bodies. Transhumanists wish to use technological means that will eventually enable humans to move beyond what some would think of as “human.” Posthumans could use synthetic intelligence, or they could be enhanced by the interaction between them and computers. Transhumanism may include the redesign of the human organism using advanced nanotechnology or its radical enhancement using some combination of technologies such as genetic engineering.

According to Wikipedia, mRNA, which stands for messenger ribonucleic acid, is a single-stranded molecule of RNA that corresponds to the genetic sequence of a gene, and is read by a ribosome in the process of synthesizing a protein. mRNA is created during the process of transcription, where an enzyme converts the gene into primary transcript mRNA. The structure of RNA is similar to DNA but has some important differences. RNA is a single strand of code letters (nucleotides), while DNA is double-stranded. COVID-19 mRNA vaccines give instructions for our cells to make a piece of what is called the “spike protein.” The Pfizer vaccine and the Moderna vaccine use synthetic mRNA that contains information about the coronavirus’s signature spike protein.
