For a long time I was quite puzzled by transhumanism... but not, anymore. The upcoming generations, obsessed with drugs, booze, tobacco, anime and video games, will make this a reality--it is a "natural consequence" of that evolutionary path. Why? Because they may be "human" in the taxonomy sense, but no longer humanitarian. The ethical component has been supplanted by a technological one, where "simulations" of reality have replaced the natural experience of life. That abyss has gotten so wide, that even when homo sapiens fictitius encounters the Natural world, it must be rejected as their mind does not possess the schemas (re: Kant) to comprehend it.
Curiously, this is exactly the idea behind camouflage--to make something invisible to the mind, even though the eye sees it clearly. When the mind does not recognize a pattern, nothing gets sent to be consciously processed. This is why people "sense" something may be wrong, but cannot figure out what it is... sensory data is saying, "Danger Will Robinson!" but no schemas from prior experience are being fired, so no recognition of the event occurs--camouflaged.New information that falls within an individual's schema is easily remembered and incorporated into their worldview. However, when new information is perceived that does not fit a schema, many things can happen. The most common reaction is to simply ignore or quickly forget the new information. This can happen on a deep level— frequently an individual does not become conscious of or even perceive the new information. People may also interpret the new information in a way that minimizes how much they must change their schemata. For example, Bob thinks that chickens don't lay eggs. He then sees a chicken laying an egg. Instead of changing the part of his schema that says "chickens don't lay eggs", he is likely to adopt the belief that the animal in question that he has just seen laying an egg is not a real chicken. This is an example of disconfirmation bias, the tendency to set higher standards for evidence that contradicts one's expectations.
The transhuman agenda has camouflaged the Natural world, so when fictitius encounters Nature, it is ignored, forgotten or disconfirmed, reinforcing the chemically-induced fantasia, which is then returned to, to nullify the discontinuity. This cycle is repeated, until the only option left is to accept the virtual world, the Matrix, as the only, possible path to "human" evolution. Curiously, it is "everything, but."
I tip my hat to the Great Architect... very clever system.
