Thanks Adrian, that's a good point which I'll keep in mind. The physical
augmentation invoke a slew of memes like frankenstein, playing god, and loss
of humanity. The mental augmentations aren't nearly so loaded in the
cultural wash, and so maybe they can be discussed more usefully. As I
consider them to have higher utility than their physical counterparts
anyway, that's a good angle for me.
