Cyborgism Vs Augmentism Vs Hybridism, sort of sounds like a title from a science fiction book series, conjuring up images of terminator like robots battling perfect looking humans and Hybrid Man/Machines with energy weapons while the fate of the planet rests in the balance.
The image might not be far from reality in this case however, and it’s hard to admit something like that might ever happen but with the technologies that we are working on to improve the human condition there are some disturbing things coming to light which might , with the passage of time cause humanity to develop diverging paths to ensure continued existence and might possibly create factions, creating a rift between people who make those essential and compulsory choices.
When push comes to shove, would you decide on becoming a robot a genetically enhanced human or a hybird? , many won’t see a difference either way but when you get down to the core of each technology there are significant differences that will essentially create a rift between the entire species on selection of any one of the three core tech concepts.
Let me clarify hear what i mean by Cyborgism , Augmentism and Hybridism so we can be on the same page as we further the discussion.
