Transhumanism is the idea that we can (and should) use scientific knowledge to fundamentally transform the human form in order to improve human intellectual and physical abilities. These ideas are usually connected with discussion about radical life extension, or even dreams of some form of immortality. I’ve previously discussed how companies like Google are even getting involved in the transhumanist desire for radical life extension. The cultural pressure for longer life seems to be growing quickly. But can we actually live forever (or at least radically longer)? The answer to that questions is (sadly) unknown, but I wanted to make a video that contextualized our seemingly innate human drive to seek immortality or eternal youth.
