        Is Futurama the Best Argument Against Transhumanism? | PBS Idea Channel

        Transhumanism is a scientific philosophy that says technology will solve all our human biological constraints and that immortality is right around the corner. While not an exact illustration of transhumanism, Futurama does show a future of vast technological ability, where today's everyday problems are rendered moot, and yet the characters on the show still seem to find themselves in some very non-euphoric emotional states. Does this disprove what transhumanists expect for our future?
