Do you think the human race will become cyborgs? We have come along ways with robotic arms and legs to replace limbs. Man with quadriplegia employs injury bridging technologies to move again -- just by thinking.First recipient of implanted brain-recording and muscle-stimulating systems reanimates limb that had been stilled for 8 years.

Absolutely. I'd go so far as to suggest that all normal human sensory information will be artificially replicated and employed to provide near-human interactions in the head of a pin, where the essence of each human being will permanently reside. There will be no more human form as digitized synthesis becomes the embodiment of all humanity. We will become a quark that can travel the galaxies unencumbered by life support systems currently needed for human space travel. We will be able to transport ourselves as a particle in a light wave with all the normal human consciousness and faculties that artificial synthesis replicates digitally.
Ain't it wonderful how god gave us the sciences?
I think well become a race of cyborgs within a hundred years. Then well be like the anima ghost in the shell.
The evolution will be synthetic, with an eye turned towards mutation and natural selection as the outgoing evolving mechanism, with the rate of change slowed only by the rate of technological advancement. You think 100 years will get us there. That's being very conservative. Medicine is now boasting that it can engineer humans to live 2 to 3 times normal life expectancy. I can't imagine the desire to be among my fellow man for that long. Go one further and tell me my thought processes and mental identity can be replicated and stored in a mechanism I can control with thought and I'd choose a firing squad as a better form of death instead.
Sure. We will have implants.
I would not be surprised. Some of the recent scientific discoveries are amazing. Just recently Harvard scientists discovered a way to reverse aging in mice. Human trials are to begin soon.
Ronald DePinho who led the study said "What we saw in these animals was not a slowing down or stabilization of the aging process. We saw a dramatic reversal – and that was unexpected,"
Well yes, we'll even have DNA manipulation, which can grant us great power over our traits. But surely, the Human race becoming "cyborgized" is a very true fact.
