William Gibson has to get a look in if you are going to talk transhumanism, it’s just unfortunate that there isn’t an entry that better showcases Gibsons skills than 1995’s Johnny Mnemonic. None the less the core of Gibsons ideas come through. The only problem with Gibson’s Cyberpunk world is it hasn’t come true and probably won’t for some time. Humans are definitely connected much more via the virtual world and new problems are arising. We are a long way though from biology and technology interfacing with one another.
At some point plugging in will become a thing. It seems inevitable, the only question is will this be to interact with each other, or to interact with AI.
That is a question left to next episode…. The Matrix.
