Someone actively preparing for becoming posthuman. Someone who is informed enough to see radical future possibilities and plans ahead for them, and who takes every current option for self-enhancement. The Reader's Digest Great Encyclopedia Dictionary (1966) defines "transhuman" as meaning "surpassing; transcending; beyond". In the Webster's New Universal Unabridged Dictionary (1983),  "transhuman" is defined as meaning "superhuman," and "transhumanize," meaning "to elevate or transform to something beyond what is human". Yet, these are not a complete and contemporary meanings.Today, we refer to transhuman as meaning an evolutionary transition from being biologically human toward our merger with technology, as set forth by well-known futurist FM-2030 (f/k/a F.M. Esfandiary), as "a new kind of being crystallizing from the monumental breakthroughs of the late twentieth century. ... The earliest manifestations of a new evolutionary being."
