Fwiw, my comment about transhumanists in action at


was a shorthand way of pointing to a combination of rapturous song 
with the swooping, soaring, almost supernatural skating that, for me, 
emulated dancing in low gravity, or maybe enhanced, powered >H 
bodies. The actual choreography seems to me fairly banal, even 
coarsely vulgar, but the sheer physical grace of the man and woman 
skating seems almost to transcend ordinary human capacities--the 
apparent *effortlessness* of it.
