Why are you transhuman (ist)?
I am transhuman because I want to surpass the sluggish process of evolution. I want to be smarter and more resilient than I am, and I see technological, self-directed evolution as the path toward those goals. Increase my longevity. Let me breathe underwater. Let me learn things more completely and more quickly.
