Kevin Kelly has this great piece about Humanity, in the article he talks about how modern technology and science had shape us and in time, also blurs our inner self. Is there a description for true human, where human rights is applicable only to a qualify one?
In his article he lays out his themes,
“The two basic topics which fascinate me are "What is reality?" and "What constitutes the authentic human being?" Over the twenty-seven years in which I have published novels and stories I have investigated these two interrelated topics over and over again. I consider them important topics. What are we? What is it which surrounds us, that we call the not-me, or the empirical or phenomenal world?”
You can read some of them in BoingBoing. The rest you should figure out soon. (Link)
