Short story - Upgrade: Looking at the effects of integration with technology and consumerism
Having listened to the interview on Joe Rogan's podcast, I was inspired to write a short story.
"Enter a dystopic future where integration with technology may cost us our humanity. A bleak prediction of a world where consumerism and technological advancement has been taken to the extreme.
If you were offered the ability to integrate with technology would you? How far would you go? Replace your skeleton with a titanium alloy? Save your memories to the cloud? Serf the net whilst you sleep? Install neuro-ocular implants? Download your consciousness into a new bio-synthetic body?
Upgrade attempts to answer the fundamental question: What does it mean to be human?"
