Giant scorpion robots and uploading consciousness: welcome to a strange new world

We’re moving into a strange world. Students busy themselves making giant, robotic scorpions, transgender partners seek to keep their loved ones alive after death through cyborg or android bodies with uploaded consciousness, and billionaires plan for implanting their human essence into holograms or other forms in order to gain immortality.
Will any of these “innovations” lead to or become the Image of the Beast? Possibly, though it’s still a bit early to tell exactly what form that will take. Technology is changing so rapidly that we can barely keep up. One thing is certain though; it won’t be human in any way that we’ve understood in the past.
