In a 2006 paper, philosopher Nick Bostrum defined a ‘posthuman’ as “a being that has at least one posthuman capacity.”

“By a posthuman capacity,” Bostrum explained, “I mean a general central capacity greatly exceeding the maximum attainable by any current human being without recourse to new technological means. I will use general central capacity to refer to the following:

  • healthspan – the capacity to remain fully healthy, active, and productive, both mentally and physically
  • cognition – general intellectual capacities, such as memory, deductive and analogical reasoning, and attention, as well as special faculties such as the capacity to understand and appreciate music, humor, eroticism, narration, spirituality, mathematics, etc.
  • emotion – the capacity to enjoy life and to respond with appropriate affect to life situations and other people”
A Posthuman is also a duo of London acid house producers and cousins Rich Bevan and Josh Doherty.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrU_PXsJNTg

Their new release, Back To Acid is first-rate lysergic cyborg fizz, so we invited the duo to compile a mix for us!
