I think I need a bit of translation of the question to begin to answer
it. Since I presume NBIC advances are essential to arriving at
actual transhumans and posthumans I don't see how "affect" is quite
the right word since these states require NBIC advances. Or am I
missing something? Clearly such states are contingent on some such
advances but what is this about designing an environment which
includes such advances? Are you asking for what such a society/
economy/gestalt may be like? And which things are you asking be
considered as "spheres", overlapping or otherwise? And lastly what
do you mean and not mean by "look" like?
