Someone asked me recently what the impulse behind transhumanism was.  I 
said survival.

If the driving force of transhumanism is an innate and informed desire to 
improve the human condition, then survival would be an element of this 
driver. But I am not sure if this is a chicken/egg thing.

If you draw a circle in the sand and study only what's inside the circle, 
then that is a closed-system perspective. If you study what is inside the 
circle and everything outside the circle, then that is an open system 
perspective. - Buckminster Fuller
