I don't know if you are responding to me or to Michael. If to me, then let's consider the fact that this article contains transhumanist ideas and references "Primo 3M+" which exhibits the human machine interface, cloning of organs, augmenting the brain for enhanced intelligence, gender switching, etc. These concepts are not just about wanting the body to be durable or about life extension, but about an entirely new body, a transhuman body, which in this journal I find to be novel.
