I just saw an Italian transhumanist documentary and it was fantastic. the biological human body is way too weak and problematic. I think that I don't want to be entirely biological. Imagine if you could not feel anxiety, depression, lack of enthusiasm for living, savage boredom, continues interest for new and old activities, have always the sense of discovery, enhance the experience of pleasure and appreciations, imagine if you are mind is set to love more and appreciate other yours.
You wouldn't hear people talking about people killing themselves. But all this is possible just towards technology. Nature has been a way to unfair to us.
We get bored, we suffer of stress, depression, anxiety, extreme anger etc. etc. and these conditions are very painful just like 100 people hits you while you are on the ground.
but that is the very thing that makes us humans, to be a more or less a complete person you must balance the good and the bad, those bad things are there for a reason.
"In Chinese philosophy, the concept of yin-yang (simplified Chinese: 阴阳; traditional Chinese: 陰陽; pinyin: yīnyáng), which is often called "yin and yang", is used to describe how seemingly opposite or contrary forces are interconnected and interdependent in the natural world; and, how they give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another."
"Yin and yang are actually complementary, not opposing, forces, interacting to form a whole greater than either separate part; in effect, a dynamic system. Everything has both yin and yang aspects, (for instance shadow cannot exist without light). Either of the two major aspects may manifest more strongly in a particular object, depending on the criterion of the observation."
"The Taijitu is one of the oldest and best-known life symbols in the world, but few understand its full meaning. It represents one of the most fundamental and profound theories of ancient Taoist philosophy. At its heart are the two poles of existence, which are opposite but complementary. The light, white Yang moving up blends into the dark, black Yin moving down. Yin and Yang are dependent opposing forces that flow in a natural cycle, always seeking balance. Though they are opposing, they are not in opposition to one another. As part of the Tao, they are merely two aspects of a single reality. Each contains the seed of the other, which is why we see a black spot of Yin in the white Yang and vice versa. They do not merely replace each other but actually become each other through the constant flow of the universe."
Btw. I'm not a taoist so don't think this is some kind of promotion.
