Biopunk Video

    Hello I'm Matthias, I'm new to the biohack.me forum and this is my first post.

    The ultimate goal of myself and others is to be enhanced by technology. I am curious as to what was meant beyond the "Slave to technology we are" that was obviously stated.
  • CathasachCathasach February 2016
    We can be enhanced by technology without being slaves to it. There are a lot of technologies we are slaves to and much of the economy runs on technologies that enslave us. Technology can be liberatory, but it isn't necessarily.

    I haven't watched the video yet but I would categorize slave to technology as cant live with out it. As an example I would say go stand in a city and wait at a cross walk count how many people don't have headphones in or a cell phone out. If you don't have access to a city try a restaurant same thing.

    I'm not a fan for watching videos since the last one brought me to a cat video.... but ill give it a try.

    ok that solidified my thoughts on following video links...just short of a strange syfy cyborg porn intro I'm not sure how that is supposed to really discuss slave to technology.

    Hahahaha. @Meanderpaul "I'm not a fan for watching videos since the last one brought me to a cat video.... but ill give it a try." That is golden.

    @MVB I really like your video. Beautiful in an unsettling and disconcerting way like a warning of a dystopian future. I really enjoyed it.

    I believe that technological advancement is human advancement. Technology is helping us achieve our best potential. 

    However sometimes I do find myself neglecting personal relationships to spend time on my computer.

    I think bio hacking is a very exciting and positive step forward in human evolution.

    "However sometimes I do find myself neglecting personal relationships to spend time on my computer."

    This is really what I took from the video. I think biohacking is the opposite, it makes us more aware of our immediate surroundings and reality rather than further mediates it. Enhancing our senses increases our participation with the world.
