Heed not Icarus. We are becoming transhuman-persons in transition to a posthuman era in which human limits will have been overcome.
The achievement of posthuman lifespans will require extensive revision of our way of life, our institutions, and our conception of our selves.
Death is an imposition on the human race and will no longer be acceptable. Biological aging will have been eradicated. Intelligence will be augmented beyond the capacities of our natural brains.
We will have the ability to choose our physical and psychological identity, rather than acquiescing to the identity we are born with.
