Is Transhuman Already Here?

One of the fiercest topics of the century is the case of the Mars. But the future is just impossible to predict. And this unpredictable future can not stop people from thinking and trying to get on the other planet. We think that the laws we create, the technologies we invent, and the way we live will together form a small force and will help the future generations to shape their wellbeing.

In the same way of predictions, it is strongly believed that our future generations will be living with Transhumans.

Above all, the question arises “How will we know that we are progressing?”

Transhumanism and its properties constantly argue on ageless bodies and extraordinary minds. Transhumanism is not only possible with robotics, Sci-Fi but also on the Social and Political human behaviors. The technological and biological aspects have to move hand in hands; in accordance to accomplish the mission of Transhumanism.
As soon as I groped through these points:

1. Medical functions; that helps to permanently alter a function of the human body, becomes prolific.
2. The society starts treating aging as a disease; a social malfunction.
3. Who to include amongst the category of Human.

It became crystal clear to me that the concerned technology and how it works is just unimportant. Rather we should look for the ways via which our ways of living could be improved and this even can change our lives as well.
There are ways to explore “if transhuman is already here”, and these are:

1. Better Brains
2. Artificial Intelligence
3. Average Age Rate
4. Responsible Reproduction

Individually, each of these points is necessary but not sufficient for claiming the study and existence of transhumanism. If only they arr hold together they become sufficient for giving birth to Transhumanism. I personally can not claim on how and when they would come into existence but yes, if forced I would like to express that the expectation could be accomplished by the Sci-Fi in the upcoming two centuries.
