Maybe; if someone was using using the terms interchangeably. We'd have to
decide whether or not the distinction is worth a side discussion. If you
are a lumber company, the point is very relevant. (that's a good example,
I think many people can agree intellectually with transhumanist goals at
the same time they are squicked by biohacking. (ex: Of course I'd like a
sixth sense about the presence/strength of EM fields, but not enough to
insert magnets into my fingertips)
