Why I am not a Transhumanist

  • ASI likely to be centralized for multiple reasons
    • requires huge resources to start
    • will be very hard to catch up to the first one
  • useful brain-computer interfaces and brain uploads won’t be developed before ASI
  • No point in adding human brains after ASI was created
  • getting anywhere close to enough hardware to turn 8 billion people into ASI is a strange use of resources.
  • biological constraints are the reason why there isn’t only a single actor in the world right now

What would it take for transhumanism to actually make a difference in any way?

Even if that would work, would it bring us closer to a solution of ai alignment?

Does it functionally differ from wireheading?
