    I think what we need to do is, as Hawkins once observed, is to merge with technology so there's a decreased chance of AI revolution against organic matter (us)

    Questionable, humans are more similar to humans than to machines but they still fight all the time. Just if something is alike that doesn't guarantee peace at all. Not to mention that cyborg vs. AI can still be a fight and quite destructive one, since both sides have "durability".

    Even if AIs don’t conquer us, I believe it’s inevitable that we will slowly transform into cyborgs. Eventually, the merging of the technological and the biological will yield mostly mechanical humans with biological brains. If we can master genetic engineering, nanotechnology, and cellular regeneration, we may even be able to live indefinitely. What we’d be classified as at that point would be up for debate.
    There is no mysterious essence we can call a 'place'. Place is change. It is motion killed by the mind, and preserved in the amber of memory.

    Music provides one of the clearest examples of a much deeper relation between mathematics and human experience.

    Inevitable ? Grandma with a pacemaker is technically a cyborg.

    Classification is easy.

    Insulin pumps or Insulin/Blood Sugar/Glucose scan points are all examples of the same too, for a long, long time none of that was necessary and I think they are all good examples of avoidable suffering which arose from market driven food production, including the mono-culture sugar cane cropping, and then the exploitation of the problem by pharma-corporations.

    I wasn’t including Graminator and her miracle ear. I’m talking sophisticated Cyberpunk level hardware and beyond. @Lexicon gets an A for using a proper example (and a Tennant era Dr. Who reference) and also for not being a smart ass.
