          Abstract

          In this short position paper, we will attempt to define Techno-Hyperhumanism and why it is needed to counter the Transhumanist agenda. We argue that through the use of current technology humans have fallen prey to the digital feed that directs us on how to behave, what to have, what to achieve and what to aspire to. By choosing entertainment over culture, humans are degrading themselves to be part of this feed and as a consequence immediate gratification, confirmation bias and neglect are taking control. Social media technology has been used to subjugate us and capture our attention, this makes it difficult for us to gain sovereignty over ourselves and the way we use these technologies. Techno-Hyperhumanism is also a call to remember our natural capacity to shift states, to look toward both traditional practice and modern technology. This combination acts as a guide towards collaborative and integrated levels of consciousness, both internally, between our sensory and cognitive capacities and externally, with one another and our planet.
