Body boundaries and the rise of Homo evolutis

Unlike Homo sapiens, Homo evolutis is characterised by taking direct and deliberate control of our biological destiny, and a fascinating poniter to the future item HUMAN+ explores the technologically enhanced future of our species (by Michael John Gorman, director of the Science Gallery, Trinity College Dublin in the UK’s Guardian) dangles the tantalising thought that disabled people who use technology are actually at the leading edge of human enhancement technologies and that “these ‘early adopters’ of assistive technologies are pioneers inhabiting an increasingly narrow boundary between a perceived ‘lack’ and an unfair advantage in relation to the general population.” Heads-up thanks to Toni Bunting, one of the TANN: Ireland editors.
