ideology that advocates for the transformation of the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to enhance human intellect and physiology

Transhumanism is a cultural movement that thinks that humans could benefit from technology (mostly the biological type) that improves the condition of life.[1][2] It seeks to find a solution to aging, disease, and death (especially of the natural variety) by making use of such technology. The word was coined by Julian Huxley in 1957.
