Human Bio-Enhancement (& Augmentation)

Animalesque Bio-Enhancements

  

“Man is a rope stretched between the animal & the Superman—a rope over an abyss. A dangerous crossing, a dangerous wayfaring, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous trembling and halting. What is great in man is that he is a bridge & not a goal.” – Friedrich W. Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra (1883)


We've wide-ranging interests but we're most focused on human bio-enhancement, deep systems animalesque enhancements, not wearables, because we believe the human asset is pretty much central to everything that now happens both up & downstream, both good & bad.  Animal capabilities capture the imagination & are deeply embedded in our cultural fabric, hence why age-old Aesop's Fables, Tarzan, The Jungle-Book & Marvel mutants are so popular & enduring, Like a call from out-the-wild they appeal to our basic & deep-seeded survival instinct. One might say, animalesque is evolutionary hardwired in our DNA. Indeed, who wouldn't want to unleash their latent super-powers. We're into that, but not the fancy dress-up kind or make-belief kind. Rather, we're more into the Human x Anaimalesque bio-convergence kind & unleashing latent epigenetic phenotypes. We believe this approach is more befitting, more natural, more processable, less liable to have untoward effects as we are acutely aware of Finagle's eponymous law: anything that can go wrong will & at the worst possible time.

Human 3.0

“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.” 

– George B. Shaw, Maxims for Revolutionists, Man & Superman (1903)


We make no bones about it, none, we're "unreasonable" types. Though we don't believe in becoming something more than what we should be, we do  believe in John C. Maxwell's (1947), "Be All You Can Be” dictum. Moreover, we're biased into taking huge & cut-the-chase leaps into the unknown & of the kind that could quantum-leap fast-track human 3.0; humans 2.0 arose 50,000 years ago. What is Human 3.0? Well, it's like this: humans have used tools since forever, but these have grown so technologically sophisticated over time that they've effectively now outpaced us in speed, processing power & information storage/retrieval capacity. Yet, human imagination & ability to adapt & roam complex environments remains unmatched, we're still the archetype generalist specialist. So, the truly BIG & powerful leap will come about by marrying or interfacing the two, basically outsourcing certain tasks yet retaining others, e.g., like, holding on  to the fundamental plastic, flexible & adaptable "wet works" platform while outsourcing the solid-state. Like a balanced marriage, we need one another to remain on nature's mysterious arc, because nature doesn't need.


We're excited about the opportunities & possibilities of salvaging, even resculpting minds, bodies & destinies, potentially making for a better all-round future world, maybe elevating ourselves to a higher & more responsible consciousness. We're especially excited about the possibility of moving the needle on scalability & shifting the whole bell-shaped curve of consciousness-awareness-performance, not just that of a select high-paying & anyhow already high-performing, tailender few.

Tip-of-the-Spear Capabilities

"The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed." – William Gibson (1993)


We've moved some ways down the runway since unleashing the proverbial three-wishes genie from the magic lamp, we're now exploring more advanced, more edgy apps. We're especially focused on those innate, enhanceable, evolvable bio/ biomedical traits than merely simply settling on maintaining the status quo. Specifically, we're investigating the manifest-potential to realize real-world, order-of-magnitude greater performance & protection human capabilities, specifically, in relation to cognition, athleticism, resilience, survivability, recovery & rehab. For lack of a better analogy we're heavily focused on realizing souped-up, Bourne-like caps but without the downside. The aim: the ability to venture into & cope with fast-paced-dynamic, unpredictable-volatile, complex-cluttered, extreme-exigent, & unforgiving environments, circumstances & situations of consequence.
