Chair et Métal - L'Humanité augmentée
L’environnement informatique et technologique détermine aujourd’hui notre vie tout autant que le fait notre code génétique. Nous abordons une ère où s’enchevêtreront la technologie et l’être vivant, où le corps existera en partie à l’extérieur du monde biologique et dépendra de moins en moins de l’écosystème organique.

Le Transhumanisme, L’héritage de Gilgamesh

Le Transhumanisme, L’héritage de Gilgamesh | Chair et Métal - L'Humanité augmentée | Scoop.it

Mais pourquoi cette course effrénée a vouloir nous maintenir en vie et en bonne santé ? Pour comprendre, il nous faut revenir au premier mythe fondateur de l’Humanité : l’épopée de Gilgamesh. Celle-ci nous est contée par une tablette cunéiforme : il s’agit d’une quête de l’immortalité. Gilgamesh est le cinquième roi de la première dynastie d’Uruk (vers 2600 B.C.). C’est un demi-dieu, deux tiers humain et un tiers divin. Il est descendu dans les entrailles de la Terre et y a rencontré un autre demi-dieu, Uta-Napishtim, celui qu’on appelle Atrahasis dans le poème du même nom, qui a vaincu la mort en survivant au déluge. Gilgamesh lui demande les secrets de l’immortalité. Uta-Napishtim lui révèle alors l’existence d’une plante dotée d’un pouvoir de jouvence. Gilgamesh, dans son insondable naïveté, reprend aussitôt espoir, s’en va quérir la plante au péril de sa vie et l’emporte avec lui dans son voyage de retour à Uruk…

The Internet isn't just a repository of humanity's information (and porn), it could soon serve as a final resting place for the mind after our bodies wear out. Johnny Depp attempts to do just that--but with disastrous results--in Transcendence. But how close are we to accomplishing the same in real life? Quite close, according to the film's star Paul Bettany.

Transplantation of new brain cells reverses memory loss in Alzheimer's disease model

Transplantation of new brain cells reverses memory loss in Alzheimer's disease model | Chair et Métal - L'Humanité augmentée | Scoop.it
A new study has revealed a way to alleviate the learning and memory deficits caused by apoE4, the most important genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease, improving cognition to normal levels in aged mice. The success of the treatment in older mice, which corresponded to late adulthood in humans, is particularly important, as this would be the age that would be targeted were this method ever to be used therapeutically in people.
