>>7803740 I'm not OP but there are several reasons.
You'd almost instantly create a massive class divide between people who had human enhancement technology and people who didn't. What happens when the life expectancy for an extremely small portion of humanity (who also happen to be highly influential and in control) can live much longer than an average person? What's society going to be like when 5% of the population lives to be ~300 and the rest are stuck at 60-90?
What about work that directly benefits from augmented workers? Do you think people would be happy and complacent if their employers forced them to get implants, and then fired them if they refused? What happens when the working class builds a resentment to the enhanced? Do their children grow up learning the same? Could they start riots or strikes?
What about when the wrong person decides to get implants or robotic replacements, and then goes on a killing spree? How do you regulate something like this, when the 'contraband' can become part of the human body? How are people going to look at enhanced people on the street?
What about the religious side? Several major religions see the body as god's temple -- how are their followers going to see this kind of thing? Are there going to be violent reprisals against augmented people for daring to alter what some people see as god's creation?
There are a lot of tough questions when it comes to the ethics of human enhancement, which is one of the reasons large corporations aren't pouring billions into it right now. You just aren't going to know how humankind is going to react, until they do.
>>7806731 >Large advances in artificial organs and transplants, stem cell research, and gene editing in the past 5-10 years alone. >People will NEVER be able to extend the limits of the human body >There's no way you could ever hope to extend a human's lifespan using technology invented in the next 60-70 years
Are you some kind of retard?
I can get railing against the 'mind uploads and the singularity in 50 years!!!!' people because they're honestly absurd but saying that we'll have no chance of extending our lifespan or QoL in the next two generations is beyond stupidity
