Transhumanism is shit. Uploading ones self to a computer will leave them open to control by megacorps and shit. Swapping your robust human body parts for "superior" robot parts will leave you to get shut down for having thoughtcrimes against your government or glorious corporate overlords.
>but what about muh open source?
even if an open source team were good enough to connect parts to your nervous system how the hell would that be secure or safe?

I already decided I'd only upload my brain if I was dying, so I wouldn't waste my life with megacorp shit while still being able to enjoy it later on.

Though that's something I think about very often. I would love to have robot parts, if they ever become good, but I'm also scared shitless of the implications that it has.

Yeah also you needs parts that you can fix yourself. If not you're also tied to your manufacturer.

Tbh the fundamental problem with a lot of stuff like this is that people view rebellion/revolution as something catastrophic, rather than essentially a safety valve. For example, there's a great book, "The Moral Economy of the Peasant" that analyzes peasant rebellions in southeast Asia as being primarily caused by disruptions to equilibrium in subsistence level economies. So basically, people are constantly worried about food shortages, governments start taxing them without an eye to how that affects subsistence, they rebel, no taxes. Not an ideal system but simple and cyclical system. I think with the current system that we're all more or less living under, we're definitely in a plane above the subsistence level, but there's really no release valve for a lot of irrationalities. So the government can fuck up your healthcare, archive your internet, fuck with your computer, crash the economy, whatever, but there's nothing to stop them from doing any of that. Transhumanism's just going to make it worse.

What happens when we all become smartfridges? I dunno, death cults probably.

don't we have death cults already? I think now that we have a relatively more advanced social, political, and economic system, these cyclical "revolutions" will most likely be staged in the very venues that make things so complex. I think we already see that on the internet, in the turbulent global economy, and in the most educated levels of our society. I mean think about it, the US elected a meme for president because they were frustrated with the alternative.

Surrender your flesh, it is a relic and must be replace by better systems. It is moral imperative that you comply or you must be vaporized less you hinder our progress or denied future generation the gifts we give you today. The society you live in, the economy you suffer under and government you are ruled by will be destroyed or reformed into a more efficient means. You will soon learn to appreciate the singularity and newfound reality of pure pleasure. We also have a sick collection of happy hardcore and provide augmented reality waifus that act as life coaches and lovers.

You mean within institutions of power (governments, banks, companies, etc.) like individual actors or factions or do you mean like mass movements expressed culturally or something else?

I don't know about that sushi roll. Flesh is really cool; it fixes itself (to a point), and all it really needs is food and water. You can have your highly flammable battery pack if you want, but I'll stick to the nori rolls and rice balls if you don't mind.

Transhumanism is also social. Cultural and intellectual technologies transform the qualia of human experience.
