>Giving up parts of their body

That's not augmentation, it's replacement. To me, augmentation is adding something to your body to improve it.

Anyway, just changing arms or legs wouldn't do anything. That's not how the human body works. We can only be as strong as the weakest part of the chain of parts in a movement. Like having a robo arm wouldn't let you punch harder than your human shoulders, back, spine, core, hips and legs can handle.

It's an all or nothing affair. Either you replace the whole body, or you do add things to it. Or you replace broken parts with parts that will do the same thing.

Honestly I'd rather just go with a multi-body. Spread your consciousness across multiple bodies. Be good for any situation. Multi task like a god.

I'm generally a supporter of it, but the biggest problem with it is basically this.

What happens when you have a piece of cybernetics in you that has become an absolute requirement for your continuing living, such as a heart, and only one company can do the maintenance on it? Who foots that bill? What happens if that company suddenly goes under? What happens if you are brought into a hospital unconscious after a car accident and the life-saving surgery required to keep you alive involves installing a piece of cyberware? The hippocratic oath (and federal law) requires doctors in ER's to take any measure necessary to save a life - if its the only way they WILL do that piece of surgery unless you have a specific statement in your will or other legal document telling them not to. So you now have a part you are going to owe money on for a long, long time to a company that has to maintain it, but you didn't sign up for it. This happens now days too, but the human body is relatively self sufficient, if you run out on a doctor bill right now you don't necessarily have this machine inside you that would require regular maintenance.

Once we are talking about full on Ghost In the Shell style brain interface level tech, you start having all kinds of legal problems with tampering, perception vs reality, and where the human ends and the machine begins.

Pain is useful. It is a message that you are sustaining damage. Not having this message is very bad. See Leprosy.

>possibly more degrees of motion

I'd rather do this with an addition than with a replacement. That's what I see as being augmented. You have the base human model and you ADD to it. You don't replace what's already functional with something slightly more functional in some ways, less in others.

>>276271073
I don't see a problem there at all, to be honest. If you do not wish to live on with a piece of technology within yourself for whatever reason, you still have the choice to die afterwards by killing yourself. The only difference would be that you were offered the choice to live or to die, rather than being killed with no choice whatsoever.
Unless you somehow interpret the choice given to you as negative, there's nothing inherently bad about this. And should you actually consider having a choice in that matter a negative thing, you could also sign a legal document (as you mentioned) that will make sure you will not have to make such a choice.
If you're worried that a single company could have a monopoly on some kind of augmentation that can save your life, government regulations or the free market - pick whatever suits your politicial convitions or the status quo of your country - should easily be able to take care of that.

Not him but here is a good one:

I read biomedical ethics journals. Early 2014 (maybe late 2013?) there was a really infamous article about genetic enhancements. Now this isn't cybernetics but the upshot is the same so whether it's cybernetic or genetic engineering the conclusion ought to be the same.

In this particle article they argued that you have the moral imperative to eliminate males. Of course they used a lot of data (lot's of it was biased and stupid) and poor anecdotes but their conclusion was that if genetic enhancement were too be judged morally permissible then the logical conclusion that follows is a world full of women. No men at all, not even to reproduce as that can all be done artificially anyway.

So it received a ton of backlash, and is still receiving backlash to this day, but the argument works the same way for all enhancements. For cybernetics the upshot would be a world without humans. That creates an argument from economics for those who can't afford the enhancements and promotes a sort of caste system.

It's an incredibly complex issue and I'm barely even giving you a sampling. Most proponents of genetic and cybernetic enhancements point towards Zoltan Istvan (The Transhmunanist Wager) and Sam Harris (The Moral Landscape) as a sort of base to build off of for the moral consequences of such endeavours.

That doesn't even scratch the surface of AI that it all ultimately get's reduced too, though. As that is the final form past genetics and cybernetics--an exhumed "AI" if you will, of yourself.

I agree that they are fixable problems, I was just saying they are problems that will need fixing in one form or another. A revolution in cybernetics is going to require a giant wave of new regulations from things like insurance companies and drug manufacturers and we have very solid evidence of that kind of sweeping regulation change getting too bogged down in government bodies to get done or be done right.

So like I said: you are right, it SHOULD be easily able to take care of the problems I outlined, but evidence suggests that it won't actually manage to do so easily or efficiently at all.

you think these are going to be given out for free?
a fucking robo finger is gonna cost millions. You really think you are gonna be able to afford this ?
this is what the new deus ex is gonna be about. the richer are gonna get stronger, smarter , better in every way on top of being rich. everybody under corporate overlord class is gonna be left behind, and eventually get wiped out, that includes all of us here, the only people being able to afford augs would be holywood, bill gates, notch amounts of rich. I have nothing against augmentation if the government made sure everyone got it, but it isnt gonna be so.

Well the argument they made in the article was the the very first genetic enhancement done to any "fetus" (using that term loosely) was to make it female. Of course that would be done before the fetus is even formed. No need to regulate testosterone when there are no men.

The entire idea is completely flawed. Men make war not because they are men. They do it because they are better at it than women. Why would you want to keep men home and send women to war if you KNOW that they'll lose to any men they encounter?

If you eliminate men, then the women best suited for war will handle the war. It won't just go away. Fucking christ these people.

Just like cars, there will eventually be cheap middle-of-the-road limbs for everyone when they can be mass-produced. Every new piece of technology starts off incredibly expensive and quickly gets cheaper. Cars, computer, televisions, radios, everything. Planes are a different case because they cost a lot of materials and manpower to make and fuel, and a fuckton of infrastructure.

Also,

>there is a reason cyberpunk is always a dystopian setting

This has absolutely no bearing on our future, writers can't look into the future, the reason they're usually set in a dystopia is that there is very little that's actually interesting about utopias.

Just because 1984 depicted the year 1984 as a dystopia doesn't mean 1984 was a dystopia because the book said so.

But you're not in constant pain when you cut a finger off. You get a flash of pain when it happens, then a dull throbbing after wards, then mostly nothing unless you touch the damaged bit.

I would know, I've lost a finger by being pushed down a shale-stone cliff. Cut the thing right off. The rest of my body was also cut up nicely.

Cut was so sharp they were even able to reattach it. Finger works fine, other than being a bit less flexible than the others and getting colder in winter / not staying warm in gloves.

Its ridiculously unlikely to cost anything like that amount, at least the ones for actual medical replacement. Ghost in the Shell style full body replacement? Ok, yeah, but we're literally a century or more out from something like that.

For any kind of tech to develop, there has to be a market. If only 1% of the population (or less) can afford your product, it is unlikely to be worth the development costs technologically.

A more likely price range to put the things would be somewhere in the range a speed boat, small plane, or luxury car. Something that, with effort and debt management, people in the middle class can generally afford. At least assuming we're talking completely optional replacements.

If we're talking about replacements done because its medically required? No, those will almost certainly be available to anyone through charity if nothing else. That same hospital that is developing these has an insurance program they run that provides absolutely every service and medication they give out for 1 dollar each. I didn't have insurance and went there after having a seizure and they gave me 2 days in the hospital, an MRI, 2 CT scans, and two years worth of epilepsy meds for about 11 dollars. That's the kind of thing that'll apply to poor people that need this stuff.

The problem with gender roles is that there's more to it than just "men have more physical potential than women", men being seen as the stronger sex has foundations in the very beginnings of human culture and biology. There was very much a time where men had to defend women because they were expendable, one man can impregnate a hundred women at a time but only one woman can be pregnant from a single man at a time, and ontop of that men have an easier time getting /fit/ because of the presence of testosterone. When humanity settled and defending against wild animals wasn't a thing any longer, the culture persisted and men remained in the protector role.

It really isn't a case of men being better at it inherently, it's just that society grooms men to be the expendable ones and women to be the precious ones, the hormonal difference can be overcome through training.

They are actually usually dystopian because the theme of them is mostly talking about runaway capitalism utterly free of morality, mixed with runaway technological advancement also free of morality.

The scope of cybernetics is beyond anything else before it. It's not comparable to cars or planes. It's a technology that fundamentally changes the existence of the participant. The assumption is that they will allow the technology to be distributed at a non-prohibitive cost. But then you get into what a prohibitive cost is, really. Since earning over 30k in a year already puts you in the top 1% of the planet basic rudiments are already prohibitively expensive. But that's where the ethical issues comes in: primarily exploitation and caste systems. Just take the animosity between rich and poor in a country like India, Mexico, China (Or heck, even the U.S.) and increase by a factor of 10.

Although I disagree and I think it will be fine going forward to not acknowledge them as very real, and well-founded, concerns moving forward wouldn't be very prudent.

not to be anti-fun, but transhumanism is a lot less interesting when you realize that instead of having a deus ex future where everyone has cyber limbs, it's more akain to having all your organs replaced with artificial ones as you age. For example, my mom has four kidneys, only one of which is her own (one is her brother's, two are artificial). She weighs about 400 pounds and will probably be getting a prototype artificial pancreas too.

mind you, I'm of the opinion that nanomachines/genetic treatments/roids will become more popular before we start replacing limbs with mechanical ones

Both. It's a nebulous term used to define introduction of non-organic (or altered organics) to organic mehcanisms.

Mate, deathsports would end in one way and one way only, and that's the team that can afford even a single nuclear bomb wins. If you remove all rules, you might as well just whip out the heaviest weaponry. Would you want to watch a contest where every game ends within seconds as the opposing side sets off a massive explosive? Nothing is ruleless, even war is governed by quite a few rules.

>If killing is so easy why won't you go to war then?
War is not just killing.
War is strategy, operations, and tactics. It takes place over years and requires careful use of manpower resources, and politics.

If you make a game out of it it will necessarily be far more reductive than any authentic conflict.

And if we're comparing the complexity of a game like football or soccer, then it's going to be a lot more complex and thought provoking than something like a gladiator battle. Those rules are what gives it the little complexity it has.

What if chess pieces weren't restricted by rules?
Do you honestly think the game would be nearly as complex?

I shouldn't be so melodramatic though, because the suburb I lived in was built ontop of three or four farming villages that were completely torn down to accommodate it. And in all fairness, as new towers go up old blight is torn down. It's just weird for me actually being able to commute to work by train now, and that I can walk to stores instead of driving. I can't help but feel that I'm of a different age though, a lot of my friends are in their 20s and don't even own cars. I myself haven't been into a large department store in over a year, and back then when I did it feel extremely quaint. Also, like I said all the farmers are retaking their land back, and it's fucking weird going from liberal inner city to toby kiethland in less than a ten minute car ride now.

That's hilarious because anime and many japanese videogames are hopelessly optimistic and naive.

I personally don't think there needs to be a solution to the lack of absolute morality, or the will of God if you will. Humans are pack animals, after all. We're highly social beings, empathic and we instinctively seek structure in things, which is why the concept of God exists in the first place.

The EYE Universe is fucked beyond repair.
But if I get a chance to be in the actual EYE organization, then I'd go with that for sure.

Otherwise definitely Deus Ex.

White blood cells are literally Racism Incarnate so yeah hacking a human brain would be pretty tough. hell, the hack might even backfire, and the hacker gets short circuited. Kind of like how hacking works in GiTS really.

Yeah, I guess not. Are you religious? Just know that it goes both ways. I may spout assumptions about things we'll never know, but you devote your entire life to assumptions. It's not really a position from which you can criticize me.

That's how it works, though. Deities harness their powers from people who believe in them.

What did satin ever do to you, faggot?

I'm a fence sitter. I don't have a fucking clue either.

In any case I would be crazy to devote my entire life to assumptions.

No, stop, we are not talking about figuratively killing god.
We are talking about literally killing an omniscient, omnipresent and omnipotent entity.
That is impossible by definition.

Omnipotence by itself is impossible. It contradicts itself at every turn.

I haven't played HR in forever, but I have both the original and Director's cut.

Would I be fine re-installing the director's cut by itself?

Where does the omniscient being get it's powers from?
That's right. Belief.
Where does the belief come from?
Intelligent beings ala humans.
How do we prevent omniscient beings from getting belief?
>>
>>276280764
Yea
Its completely standalone rebundling of HR and its DLC
Wish they had made that clear before its release
>>
>>276280640
Well, omnipotence is a paradox right out of the gate so an entity with such a trait couldn't possibly exist. Seems like you're off to a pretty retarded start.

I know they pulled a Deadly premonition move and took out the yellow filter, is there anything else that they tweaked that would make it a downgrade? I know they updated boss fights and such but not much beyond that. I'd look at it myself but I have to leave for work in 5 minutes and would like to get it downloading before that.

A downgrade? No
But there's still bugs from the first one, although way less. But I haven't played it since its release so I don't know if they fixed it or not
Its not like Sleeping Dogs where they literally downgraded the graphics, unless you enjoyed the pissfilter in HR

>>276280947
Why would an omniscient get its power from faith? An Abrahamic religion is based around an omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent god, regardless of the amount of faith.

We can still pronounce things with our inner voices, and depending if there's a picture of a particular person, like pic related, the voie can change into that particular person's voice.

Titty sprinkles. Amazing, isn't it? You are now reading this text with the voice of Morgan Freeman, it's like Morgan himself is narrating the very text you are now reading.
