Bioethicists, prosthetists and transhumanists focus on their collective "bionic" assumptions to bundle their fears and hopes.

But as we know by now, "bionic" hands do not deliver. Not really. You can wave them around, but even when attending a user workshop and discussing how to change a bike tire, the company product ambassador recommends taking the wheel to a shop. So, not really.

This shows the charmingly simple - but functionally enhancing - handling of a hot piece of meat and the hot frying pan using a prosthetic hook.

Absence of recognition of this act as clear proof of human enhancement also proves absence of rational thought in the beholders, to conclude this discussion.

I had already previously figured this part of the "enhancement debate" was mostly myth and fear driven. And we may then focus on how fear disables rational thought.
