Science is developing more and more potential for human beings toenhance themselves. The pace of change is rapid, and some peopleare already warning that we are heading for a post-human futurepopulated by ever-lasting, self-sustaining intelligence systemsinto which the contents of a human mind have been poured... Is this true? In Enhancing Me, Pete Moore examines the ways inwhich technology can change our bodies, our brains, our emotions,and how long we live. He talks to people who have actually been'enhanced' to find out what it's like and how beneficial it is; andto the experts to find out what the future holds - including a lookat some of the more controversial, headline-grabbing claims. He also looks at what drives us to want to be 'superhuman', and theconsequences for the individual and society alike: * If you could live forever, would you want to? * If you could download your mind onto a computer, would youstill be you? * Should we insert chips into our children, so we can track wherethey are? * Should we force violent criminals to have mood-controllingbrain implants? * Would you want technology to improve your memory... or helpyou forget? If you've ever wondered - or worried - about the pace at whichtechnology is progressing, then this book will give you aneye-opening glimpse of the future in this fascinating field.
