There's parallels, certainly, but the issues which I take to be central to transhumanism (as I understand it) are actually more front and centre in Neuropath.

Though I know that transhumanists pride themselves on their secularism, I have to say that it smacks of religion to me. And when it comes to 'wireheading,' it gets out and out scary. Put it this way: if Kellhus is an example of our transhumanist future, we are in deep doo-doo.[/quote:1jexr7gi]

Well, I am not sure. Sure Kellhus is an evil bastard, but he at least is a competent evil bastard which is more than can be said of our leaders at the moment. It depends on what you consider greater evil, I guess.

So it is going to be Neuropath, as in Psychopath? I for some reason thought it is going to be Neuropaths, as in Neural Paths. view post
