  1. By the way, it’s inaccurate to characterize Mormon Transhumanism as a rejection of grace — as narcissism or egoism or even mere individualism. While Mormon Transhumanists have diverse views, most of us heavily emphasize the importance of relationships, both among humans and with God. Careful in your assumptions. 🙂
