“I’ve found that people who talk about futurism or transhumanism are usually not doing anything particularly technologically significant with their lives.

I must also observe that Mr. Tonnies was a transhumanist, not in-fact a posthumanist, which mainly extends humanism by giving non-humans moral value.

So transhumanism is mostly about implants & robots while posthumanism is largely about animal rights. Btw, antihumanism is cryptic bitching about humanism’s failures.
