The Making of Homo Futuro

  • Joseph R. Carvalko Jr.

Abstract

Transhumanism deals with the science or technology related to the evolution of the human species. The label “posthumanism” considers similar ideas, but looks outward as to how the successors to the modern human will impact our planet and achieve harmony within the framework of ecologically complex networks. Homo futuro refers to a human entity in transition, or transhuman. As germ-line genetic alterations become routine, our shared anatomical identity with Homo sapiens will begin to move into other directions, driving structural changes. Additionally, the computer and its life blood, software, will create hybrid beings that will have superior sensory access and intellect.
