It is important to note the importance of altruism being represented as one of the human traits. For example, in the case of composition of interstellar messages in search for extra-terrestrial intelligence, we would place altruism as a hallmark of human nature. It would take several generations before an alien intelligence shall receive such transmitted interstellar messages. It would take even longer for them to respond to us across space. Therefore, it is important to calculate whether our projected qualities such as altruism still hold true I the future when contact is made. Will a technologically superior human being o the future be altruistic?
The current limitations of the biological body shall be overcome in the future by rapid advances in genetic engineering, nanobots, cyborgization, etc. We will live longer; have disease resistant healthy bodies with a superior controlled intellect to accompany it. In this paper, it is proposed that the human being of the future shall be a superman of sorts; or in other words a CYBORG, who will be a perfect mesh of technology and biological components. I would also like to propose that the current H.sapiens would be so different that we would probably classify our future selves as a Cybor sapiens or Homo cyborgus. There are several such possibilities and in this paper, I have put my focus on the cyborg outcome.
