TRANShumanism…Discovering Humanity’s Potential

At its core, transhumanism is about discovering humanity’s potential, an
idea that’s been around for centuries. Yet at times we’ve also done the
opposite by selling our species short and throwing in the towel early.

that all the great scientific discoveries had already been made and
that there wasn’t much left to do beyond some “tidying up” of existing
theories.

Patent Office, boldly asserted in 1899, “Everything that can be invented – has already been invented.”
