- Citation :
- What happens when a researcher tries to develop a cure against Alzheimer’s using a monkey and enhance the intelligence of the primate, allowing him to access the same level of consciousness than human beings? Everything was filmed! It’s in the new film by Rupert Wyatt, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, which shows an insurrection of newly intelligent monkeys (see the trailer below). This scenario will probably become possible during the next decade. If we can enhance the human brain, we also can augment that of an animal. In the context of these neurological forthcoming manipulations, journalist George Dvorsky proposes to confer human rights to animals and imagine a society where humans and enhanced animals coexist within the same cities. Paul Raven (from the blog Futurismic) replied, citing mainly the following paradox: we cannot give the right to self-determination to animals, and then augment their consciousness against their will. Moreover, giving an animal the human intelligence would make him become a ”human” within an animal body, and this outer-species-being will soon want a more useful, human body to evolve within the civilization. This animal enhancement project would finally exactly be like removing a brain of an animal, enhancing it, then placing it in a humanoid body (and possibly giving it human rights). This may well be seen as interesting if the experiment is conducted on only a few animals (see the H.G. Wells book (and movies) The Island of Doctor Moreau). We indeed could create spokesmen of the different animal species. So that we could perhaps learn a lot about their concerns. But turning all the animals into humans would surely result in destroying the ”natural diversity”.

Il y auras un exposé sur un sujet similaire au prochain Paradigm Shift.
Des Enhenced LifeForms du genre "la planete des singes" sont totalement sur la voie de la transcendance technologique.
