>Yes, I really liked it when I read it. Has anybody actually
tried to use it?<

Yes, in a state of creative continuity where one concept leads
to the next as if building a matrix of data. I found similar
experiences with zen-in-the-art-of-free-fall-expression.

>Transhumanism as species relativism?<

Could be too narrow, perhaps, in that I may not hold all truths
of transhumanists. Also, if such distinction depends on the
limited nature of the mind, I might bolt on this point because,
although the mind today is indeed limited, I do not assume that
such limitation will be its nature.


Then species would be understood in a new way because species
are potentially capable of interbreeding and late-transhumans
may have other methods of reproduction dissimilar to early-transhuman
interbreeding. What I like about this concept is the open slate
of possibilities for breeding, whether post-bio physical or for
mental replications.
