This makes a lot of sense if one knows the definition of transhuman (I
assume you refer to FM-2020's definition), but it is likely unclear to
anybody who doesn't know what a transhuman is. So this definition
might be useful to us, but when presenting our views to others we will
need the other proposed definitions and to explain transhumanity to them.
