One bit of backstory to the creation of this doc was that we discovered it during the postgame of a session of Eclipse Phase, an RPG about transhumanist horror and science fiction. And then we discovered real transhumanist horror.

Speaking as someone who thinks that Transhumanism and body modification stuff is cool, this is about as dumb as wishing you were superman and jumping off of a building to see if you can fly. I'd be willing to have some mad scientist implant bleeding edge tech into my body. However the notion that these people are at all advancing the tech or implementing it in a meaningful way is absurd.

When the headline "FLORIDA MAN'S DICK FALLS OFF DUE HOMEMADE MOTOR IMPLANT" hits the presses it's only going to cause a setback for real scientists. That could be bad considering the majority of this tech is for amputees people suffering from serious diseases.

That's sort of strikes at the heart of it though. Bio tech isn't really for these people, it isn't for the silicon valley richer than god dip shits either, it's for people with debilitating ailments and disabilities.

Anyway I do agree with the one poster and have always dreamed of having cyborg arms. Then again, who hasn't?

Well it's just like the people who read too much harry potter and became "real life witches" who put leaves in a bowl with some salt and chant "skunk skunk spray me now" until the universe solves their problems, only they played too much deus ex, missed all the messages about information control and decided the game was a call to arms for people who wanted to graft fidget spinners into the palms on their hands

 something that really bothers me about the biohacking community is the cavalier attitude to which people seem to treat the idea of an "upgrade". We still have a limited understanding of phantom limb pain, but that doesn't stop these white-dreadlocs types from wishing they could just swap out limbs and accessories like clothing, nerve damage be damned. So while the lack of research and general dumb shit going on in the ep is stomach-turning, it's been selected for from the top down. I love the idea of biohacking and self autonomy, but this shit is just too fucking dumb to countenance, even for the sympathetic.

Jackal Flapnasty hits the nail on the head - the established tech in this sphere is for people with disabilities. Oscar Pistorius' blade legs were better suited for competitive running than my 'stock' ones, and that's pretty cool to me in a way a magnet implant just isn't.

I think this might be the first episode I can't bring my self to listen to. Just the concept alone of having stuff under your skin, possibly moving skeeves me right the fuck out. Idiots going into detail it about might kill my soul enough that I'd have to remove the "Delight" from my name.
