Sure. Man has already made bionic parts for the disabled individuals. Why wouldn't they make bionic humans?

I've definitely believed this for a long time. There are a couple small hurdles. But it's not unthinkable that they could be overcome, things like the biological response to robot implants which is often quite bad. Even with regards to nano robots after a while our body reacts by coating them in certain chemicals which just sit there and fester. We need a breakthrough in genetic technology first to modify the human body so it can take true implants which one would surely use to be post human.

But if we can there's no reason why we can't dramatically improve our cognition by way of combining nano-robots with biology. We could enhance our senses, cease degenerating, treat our whole body as a place for information storage and even connect our consciousnesses to an augmented reality internet. This would give us psychic control over our devices and probably over a variety of forms and functions of both the self and other things. I think the sense of things is that development with carbon nanotubes will eventually be ubiquitous and those things could easily form computers the size of neurons (or architecture the size of a space elevator).

In that case I misunderstood your intention and have adjusted my position accordingly.

Yes, but that's not the point of the question. I mean, to further progress, man must work closely with machines.

4 years, 10 months ago

I'm not saying we won't, but we are already merging man with machine, so it is present, not future.

Yes, but why not take it further, to augmented reality, and more interactive technologies?

We already have robotic prosthetics that are able to react to mental signals, extending, grasping, etc.
