Being Truly Human

If we allow AI and related technologies to flourish without our guidance, then AI will ultimately create a caricature of the truly human and, ultimately, if the transhumanist or extinctionist scenario plays out, destroy us.

So the biggest challenge of all those who know that humans are more than sophisticated machines, is to clearly articulate what is means to be truly human and ultimately show what it means to be fully human.

And we have to articulate this vision of the truly human with the same intensity and clarity with which transhumanists advocate their cause for techno-utopia including downloading of human consciousness into a machine.

This is the intent of this section. The beginning dearth of articles out there on this issue is a testament that we all have a huge task ahead of us.
