Just wondering about the whole line of ethical and moral philosophies expressed on the subject that stem from the games conversations, it had me wondering what folks here on the Gamefaqs forums would think about such things.
By choice or necessity, if the technology were available as presented in the game, would you augment yourself? What would you augment, and why, and if you wouldn't, why not? With all the other conversations on mores, ethics and morality around here I just thought this might be a change of pace.
Just want to see where if anywhere, this conversation leads...
I think a lot of people would do things like eye augmentation to see with greater clarity.
When it comes to replacing body parts though that's a whole other can of worms. Do you design to replace the missing part with equal functionality, or do you replace with the intent on improving?
Honestly, I don't think I'd want to change anything on myself, but that's me speaking with my current world view. If I lived in a world where it was normal and was brought up understanding it was normal my outlook would likely be different.
And if in the jobs market you'd be required to have some level of augmentation or be seen as too slow to complete your task efficiently, then really you'd have little choice. I mean how would joe average manage to get a job as a secretary when in comes Captain Augment over here with his bionic hands
