So would you have your arms and legs replaced with synthetics that had feeling but were far more attractive and stronger? Would you have your children conceived and brought to term using an artificial womb? Would you use bio-technology to have only smart, beautiful children? Finally, would you like to work at your career until you are 150 years old?

Nature will deal with this shortly.

Not sure really. If people mess with their DNA too much then we could fragment into a collection of human species that cannot even breed with each other anymore.

Other than that, nano-tech for longevity...

I wonder how many of our galactic friends are trans-bio-beings to transtechnological or trans-spiritual/energy beings, i wonder how many species went to far so regressed to an earlier state, maybe for the gains acquired there are some losses to, maybe the price can be to great sometimes, we are transforming through evolution anyway but at a much slower rate, question; if we go down the route of this trans-state how will we know what we could of been, maybe our evolution will guide us to a better and more natural befitting state, i reckon transhumanism can be a dangerous route, we could seriously miss the boat into the next realm of existence, the passage of time will guide us if we let it :flop:
We live a one directional life in an omnidirectional existence

From time to time a shockwave hits us, coming from the center of the galaxy, a rimple, an echo of the first sound, this wave changes all from inside out, the changes are relative fast.
Between those shockwaves evolution 'happens', no big changes.

The changes we (humans) made, the problems we've solved, only gave more problems, more destruction.
The top of this insane thinking is imo transhumanism.
But this is also a sign that we are in for a shock (by nature)
