Savitri Era of those who adore, Om Sri Aurobindo and The Mother.
In view of the fact that multiple anonymous comments in a thread make confusing reading and it becomes difficult to track who is telling what and to whom, only comments bearing some name/pseudonym/identity will appear in future. [TNM 011110 SEOF]

For those spiritual types who shiver in fear at the thought of transhumanism, stop shivering. Remember that Aurobindo's Supramentalisation has the same aim: "transformation of the entire being, and ultimately, the divinization of the material world." The difference is the approach. Transhumanists seek to foster 'transformation" by focusing on the material, while spiritual heavyweights like Aurobindo focused on the interior. I'd like to imagine that those two approaches would intersect someday. And therein lies a more integral approach. In the meantime, the possibility of physical immortality intrigues me. Not because I want to preserve this bodymind in its current form. But to render it undone, both physically and spiritually.
