It’s a nod towards a field known as human augmentation or “Human 2.0”, the idea of adding to our cognitive or physical abilities to make us “better than well”. One interpretation has it that this process has already begun, through cosmetic surgery and reproductive aids on the physical side, and neurostimulation and dietary supplements to enhance brain functions on the cognitive side. Other philosophers see the latest developments in augmentation as the next step in human advancement that started with making primitive tools thousands of years ago and has progressed as far as developing the internet and mobile devices we use today.
