Over the coming decades (well, hopefully) humankind will for the first time in the history of our species be able to actively improve our own condition. As the nascent technology of neuroprosthetics develops, we may soon be able to bolster our memory and recall, think faster, focus our attention better, react faster, run swifter, have super-human strength and just generally BE better. For now, this technology is being developed for the handicapped and disabled (restoring sight to the blind or movement to the paralyzed). But the question will inevitably arise: if you had the choice to enhance yourself, all of your mental/physical faculties being perfectly fine, would you?
