Let me put it this way, which I consider the inevitable H+ POV: we used to
be (kind of) reptiles.

Those reptilian ancestors may well have thought fondly of the importance of
maintaining the core of reptilianity in their successors.

After a fashion, we did, since we fully partake of that legacy. But we have
also moved over. Including in "ethical" and "emotional" terms. To consider
posthumanity in human terms is a contradiction... in terms.
