This is just a rewording, essentially, but after looking at the definitions
of other "isms" in my Random House Dictionary, I would prefer to see a
definition something like the following:

"Transhumanism - a philosophical movement that stresses the utilization of
science and technology to accelerate the physical and mental development of
the human species beyond its current limits.
- trans-hum'-an-ist, adj. n. - transhumanistic, adj.
- transhumansitically, adv."

When I think of others reading this and the impression they need to get, it
just seems more succintly revealing of the basic philosophy involved. Am I
wrong people? Feedback invited.
