I have been given the task of running an initial edit on the FAQ, and I have taken your comments into account while I do so. I think that we have done a good job of defining 'transhuman', but that proposed definitions for 'transhumanism' are narrow and a bit murky.

In a nutshell, I am editing the definition of 'transhumanism' to make it a two-part definition to emphasize it as (1) an area of thought and (2) as an area of endeavor.

If I understand the process correctly, after the initial edit people wil have another opportunity to comment. But I would like to be given the opportunity to present a coherent set of revisions, otherwise we will be spinning this debate into an overly-extended time period.
