Augmenting the human body has always been the dream. From divine blessings and hereditary abilities in the classical age, to machines and cyborg bodies in modern times. We constantly bump into our physical and mental limitations and dream of surpassing them.
If you take the augmentation of humans to the logical extreme, being able to directly communicate with the brain is going to be key. And once that is possible, it will be almost immediately connected to a network. Allowing for vast amounts of data to be exchanged. However we simply do not know yet how this would influence the individual and if this technology would potentially eradicate individual persona in lieu of an ‘average’ persona.
Augmenting the human body is becoming increasingly more common.
Augmentation is usually technical, but doesn’t need to be electronically (e.g. glasses).
Finding a way to communicate with the body is key to derive information and feed information. Current social and cultural structures can be put under a lot of stress because of it.
