Radical Cyborgs Tribe

nym | 09:46 AM

Found a tribe on tribe.net called "Radical Cyborgs", which seems to hold some promise for discusssion. Here's the description:

Democratic transhumanists, revolutionary singularitarians, leftist extropians, bioutopians, socialist-feminist cyborgs, biopunks, transgenders, body modifiers, basic income, the culture, viridians.

One of the topics I really liked was "What cybernetic enhancement / device do you need?". Check it out, there's some fun comments there.

We are not free in this human society because we need to eat, to drink and to sleep. And even in a ideal techno-utopic society, it would be impossible to be free because we die.

If we want to be free, before thinking of other possibilities, we would have to remove those needs.

Think of alga, maybe you think it ’s a lower being, and it is in some ways, but it doesn ’t need to kill to live. Alga gets its energy directly from sun.

What kind of device would we need to insert inside of our human bodies to be a kind of intelligent seaweed?
