Description

In 2050, CC22 was 22 years old. He was the 22nd clone of Candide, who, by manipulating nanoparticles and the genome, made his fortune and mastered cloning. But CC22 did not live up to his father’s hopes. He rebelled in every possible way he could find. He praised idleness. Contemplated. Married Psalmonella. Wandered with a donkey on dark paths and in white zones. Ate unlimited cocoa-carpaccio. Changed his mantra every day. Fattened up...
Can the capacities of living beings be infinitely enhanced? To what extent? What new, hybrid, metamorphosed entities are imaginable? How will they adapt? What technical, ethical and political horizon does transhumanism offer our shared humanity? From Candide To Candide, the Controversy of Transhumanism approaches these questions about the future of humanity in a dialogue between an anticipatory tale by Olivier Fournout, 36 original drawings by Hélène Paris and an approach via the social and human sciences (Daniel Kaplan and Olivier Fournout).

Epîsode 01
How Candîde Candîde, rom îs youngest age, decîded to atten up, and tus ind te means to be dîferent. How e was born rom îs ater’s bîg-toe naî. How e met anoter cone, Nîceguy, te uture doctor Zoôn, wît wom e trîed out experîments în appîed uturoogy. How te metapysîcs o smaness detrones a te oter metapysîcs. How Candîde Candîde preerred oîdays to te engîneerîng o îe. How te peaces o îs cîdood were te word’s best. How e învented îs own orebears.
I sculpt mysel My ater’s pysîca îdea – tîgt butt, rog-îke tîgs, wasp-îke waîst – dîd not stop me rom, at te age o reason, wît a sakîng-up o my entîre beîng, startîng to atten up îke a pîg. Wen at tabe, ï ate îke ten peope. Between meas, ï emptîed te rîdge. ïn supermarkets, ï scofed wîe wakîng în te aîses, ten paîd or te empty packs. ï brougt te unîverse înto my metaboîsm îke a tîmeess baroque god. Obesîty was te surest way or me to stand out rom te oters. ï modîIed my body în te easîest way or me: ï gaîned more exterîor matter. ï saîd to myse tat once ï ad become a massîve bock, ï coud scupt myse, ï coud redesîgn myse accordîng to my zany taste, accordîng to te orm ï desîred, and not accordîng to te norm wîc îs relected, în sed-oads, în anapabetîc pîxes, accordîng to wîc we soud ave no oter îe to savour.
