Electronic Transcendence

Transcendence is defined as moving beyond and outside the ordinary range of human experience or understanding. In this same vein, electronic transcendence refers to the use of computer augmenting technologies, virtualisation, and whole body emulation, or even mind transfer to move beyond the limits of the human form, and outside the scope of previous human existence.

Electronic transcendence is very much a transhumanist concept, and at the same time, a probable logical outcome of living through virtual reality systems ? shedding the physical shell, and becoming entirely virtual oneself. Synonymous with mind uploading.
