Sticking implants in your head for realz (among other things that take us from current human to future human).
I prefer to think we’ll be uploading our consciousness into the internet by 2050 (2048 is the current prediction, which is crazy to think about). Imagine the flame wars if we can all talk at the speed of light.
I guess we could limit Transhumanism to the fictional, that would generate as much value as the rest of the forum I guess.
Not to put too fine a point on it: EVE gives us a unique opportunity to examine the human condition. A chance to understand why we make the choices we make and reflect on the consequences of our mistakes.
I wanted to say that I did a bit of a headdesk when I realized I knew what you were talking about, but I didn’t want to go off topic. Now that I see the OP also seems in on the gag, though, I can say I liked Ratchet, but Prowl was good, too.
The core of what I want to explore here is: Does EVE promote transhumanism or is it serving as a warning about the potential negatives of transhumanism.
I recall Hilmar talking positively about transhuman potential in a video yet
the different races and clades of the game’s storyline can be perceived to serve as notice for undesirable outcomes.
Similarly, it is difficult to deny the benefits of organ transplants, blood transfusion technology yet right now cultures suffer forced organ harvesting for profit and endure the transmission of undesirable elements.
Nurolace technology could open up an ocean of data for mankind to swim freely amongst, or be used to enslave it forever.
Only CCP can give the answer. What others make of it happens in their own minds.
Same with the boosters. One could ask " Does EvE promote the use of drugs ?". Or slavery, or racism, or binaries, …
Not all discussions make sense. They may even break more value than they could ever create.
