What about in the case that it doesn't impact your health but for example

Improves your eyesight and allows you to do things like zoom in or adds more cones to your eyes allowing you to see colours humans cannot normally see.

Just upgrades like that.


I would see it as ethically wrong (my personal view), I see that as being the same as plastic surgery - attempting to improve something about yourself which is not vitally necessary

Thats true not necessary but imo it's nothing different then upgrading a computer atleast to me so i guess views do differ.

Guys,

Easy on the quote pyramids!

As for the topic at hand, I expected something completely different actually.
But yes, this too is a form of self-mutilation.

In any case, my thoughts about this are that anyone is free to do with their body as they like.
These days there already are certain methods and materials available to enhance certain functions, albeit to compensate for decreasing functionality of ones own body, like eyesight.
And not to speak of prostetics which are connected to certain nerve endings of amputees to regain basic functionality in their lost limbs, I see some major development coming to that area in the near future.

That is modification not mutilation(unless you're insanely christian).

mutilation usually refers to harm or disfigure for no reason(maybe except vengeance or personal issues)

I love the way I am currently but the idea of not breaking bones is fascinating. I do not think I would be able to do any maintenance on myself though, just a strange feeling I get, haha.

I have no problem with it. If a person wants to augment their appearance, understands any possible risks and decides to go ahead, they should be allowed to.

I'd be up in the air about it. On the one hand, it seems cool, on the other, my body does the things I need it to already, so whatever. When I get older and start losing some functionality or getting aches and pains, I'd probably be interested in modifications to bring me back to how I was, though.

As for anyone else who wants to do it, knock yourself out. Hell, we could probably repurpose the unwanted meat parts, too, so go for it.

If you got into an accident and needed a new body part, yes. Otherwise, I would see this as body mutilation if you purposefully cut your arms off and replaced them with robot arms or genetically modified ones. How many hours do you think Genos would need to be plugged in to a wall socket to fully power up with our technology. Genetically modified arms would need to be comparable or your immune system would attack them.

Hell, no. Not unless it's to save your life or someone was in an accident or something and lost a body part or function. Sure as hell not getting down with a cyborg or robot man. I have my standards. lol
