Re: Volumetric Sight

A human should be able to imitate a Vulcan and vice versa, though, so Shape seems more accurate than Race.

Re: [Basic] Advantage of the Week (#47): Elastic Skin

An important benefit of Morph is that it includes Mimicry, while ES doesn't.
Also, I'm pretty sure there's a Krommquote comparing Morph and Elastic Skin:

Re: The best Transhuman scii-fi novels?

My impression of the Tripitaka was that it was much more about What To Do than about What To Achieve with those actions. In fact, a point which I'd consider quite anti-utilitarian: eventually on the...

Re: The best Transhuman scii-fi novels?

Of course, description of ethical systems are not binary dichotomies, and what you describe seems consistent with my mention of the 'utilitarian/consequentialist stance' in the quoted post. Specific...

But "'x' was necessary because otherwise 'y' would have happened" is, once again, hinging on the assumption that the transhuman in question will be of the utilitarian/consequentialist stance. This is...

Re: [Basic] Disadvantage of the week: Bully
