Halloween, the Masque, and the Transhuman

The great joy of holidays like Halloween and celebrations like the Carnival is that we can put on masks and experiment with being someone else. We play at taking on an alternative identity.

The transhuman, however, will actually have the option of being someone else; taking on a different body, a different personality, even different memories.

What would that mean for us? As individuals and a civilization?
