Dehumanization can be thought of as the process of losing one’s humanity. It can further be thought of as a way to make one’s “pain and [...] individuality irrelevant” (Garvey, 141). Dr. Moreau wanted to manufacture more humans through the trampling over of the animalism in the animals he experimented on. In order to succeed in his plans, Dr. Moreau must devoid himself of all natural, human, empathy.
His supporters, on the other hand, celebrated his uncanny business acumen, his flexibility, and his boundless appetite for finding new ways to make computers and electronics more useful through software.”
With this stream of time, people are not upset nor are they becoming restless than we are destroying nature. We are upsetting the balance of nature by creating things and placing them within what was not created by man. Yet with all that is rapidly happening because of man, there is no time for living protoplasm to recuperate. After hitting the reader in the face with densely pact logic full of Armageddon, she slowly closes with distinguishing people to day as the “how-do-to” generation.
To examine this possibility, Garreau interviewed Nick Bostrom, co-founder of the World Transhumanist Association. Bostrom shows his agreement with human transcendence by asserting that “Technological progress makes it harder for people to ignore the fact that we might actually change the human nature” (qtd. in Garreau, 242).
At the forum, the audience comprised of expert speakers on education, business, science, technology, and different works of life. Other audience includes you and I, who although didn’t participate at the ted talk forum, but privileged to watch and listen by other communication channels such as videos, and other audio systems. the spherical podium which is at the center of the auditorium, makes it very possible for the speaker to be the center of focus. On the feedback, the result could not be assessed, but the standing ovation and rousing clapping of hands could tell. However, the speaker’s choice of words was articulate and well inclined to the subject of her speech. Her emotional facial expressions helped to drive down the message deeper, and thus created a smooth passion and soft spot on the heart of the audience. Her body language showed her brokenness, and which in return gave way for her audience
‘More human than human.’ What is real and what is not? What is good and what is bad? Are there any ways in which replicants are more appealing than humans?’
This TED talk was said to be one of the best talks of 2016, and I would agree with that because not only is Tim Urban is a great speaker, but the fact that he spoke about something that every one
When watching a TED talk you automatically know your going to leave with some new profound thought or have your ways of thinking changed slightly. The primes behind TED talks is “Ideas worth spreading” right there in their mission statement is what persuasive speech is. In Ms. Alexander’s TED talk she did just that, she spread the idea to her audience of what the future of race in America will look like if we don’t seek to change the social, economical, and political policies that almost certainly put people in america as legal second class citizens.
Seven months before the publish of Escape from Spiderhead, the first artificial life was created in US. Unlike Dolly the sheep, this is not the kind of artificial life from cloning but is created out of nothing but an “an entirely synthetic genome that was constructed from chemicals in the laboratory” (Sample). This finding has caused great reaction from the public and doubtlessly the experiment was challenged with “morality” and “playing god”. It is not difficult to image that there must be people who jump out and shout for their worries of any possible uncontrolled cases. According
Transhumanism is the idea that the advancement of technology will better the human species into a more advanced social and political existence, or literally meaning beyond human. There are many ways that transhumanism can be achieved throughout the next thirty years, some of these being medical modifications to the human body, how the human body reacts to the aging process, and those who are included to have basic human rights. Although transhumanism may give the human species certain advantages in their social and political lives, they risk their dignity, and uniqueness.
The Ted Talk By Isacc Lidsky is an interesting speech that convey a very important message. Lidsky starts his argument with a fascinated story of a little girl talking with her dad about the gold fish. Lidsky uses this story to tell his experience in a very rhythmic way of presenting. As he says that the father of the little girl, explain that the fishes "swims backwards by wagging his head" to his little girl. Lidsky uses this phrase to show the matter of factly. This is a common fact that everyone knows that fish can not swim backwards and and absolutely not by wagging their heads. however the little girl accepted because her father told her. Lidsky uses this story to clear his point and he makes a rhythmic and powerful analogy that, people

‘Her’ (Spike Jonze, 2013), takes a unique step forward from the Sci-Fi genre’s cautionary interrogation of the cohabitation between man and Artificial Intelligence. Instead of honing in on what Braidotti (2013) perceptively coins as the integral “posthuman predicament”, Jonze (2013) questions the blurred lines emerging as a result of Baudrillard’s landmark hyperreality paradigm as the dominant social structure (1999). Significantly, Braidotti and Baudrillard’s work combined problematize the loss of boundaries between “organic and inorganic, the born and manufactured, flesh and metal, electronic circuits and organic nervous systems” (2013, pg.90) and agree upon the foundation of man’s ontological dominance.

Cartesian dualism and transhumanism are both controversial theories within their time contexts. Leahey (2004) describes Descartes dualism as the separation of the body and the soul. The soul is immaterial and is the location for thought, consciousness, and the Cartesian Theatre, and controls the actions of the material body. Transhumanism theorises that technology will enhance and supersede human evolution (Elkins 2011,) as technology will become an extension of ourselves, or already is. I will explore the arguments for the strengths and weaknesses of these theories, and explore their contribution to modern psychology.
