Despite the mainstreaming of science and technology-powered fitness and health initiatives in recent years, a new survey indicates there’s a limit to what we’ll accept in the race to become “superhuman.”
Specifically, the survey, conducted by the Pew Research Center, refers to the emerging area of methods (often referred to as transhumanism) designed to enhance our minds and bodies using everything from chip implants, to synthetic blood and even to genetic engineering.
According to the survey, almost 70 percent of Americans have concerns about the unforeseen issues around brain chip implants as a means to improve cognitive ability. And such concerns aren’t the stuff of science fiction. Recent developments in chip implants have led to some patients regaining the use of a paralyzed limb.
