"Unlike transhumanists, cultural posthumanists have observed and developed
theories of change and have positioned technology in relation to this
change." p. 10

Strike me pink, Bluey! My patent analyzer does do that, but it also
displayed the vapidity of an especially ludicrous assertion ("transhumanism
doesn't theorize change") by analogy via its equivalent form for physics
("nuclear science doesn't theorize atomic nuclei").

I'd still like to know what Dr. Miah actually meant. Natasha, you're the one
who cited his essay--can you give a more detailed summary? It seems unlikely
that he's really as silly as the quote made him sound.
