and a puppy.
Okay, maybe not but it was an awesome dialogue about the religious ethics of improving one's body with robotics.
Then there was an extended tea-pot metaphor. It was great.
1. Is there a point where a person will stop being human and will become something else through augmentation? If so, when?
2. Is humanity determined by appearance, birth, biology/genetics or something else?
3. Is it blasphemous to voluntarily replace limbs with machines of our own creation? Does it change anything if the machines are superior to our biological limbs?
4. Does a cyborg have a different standing in the sight of the divine, and/or should they?
5. Is immortality through technology blasphemous or even desirable?
6. Should the augmented be treated differently by their religious communities?
7. Is there a difference between mechanical augmentation and genetic manipulation and do religious laws equally equally to both options?
We didn't get to all the questions so feel free to respond to one in the comments.
