Photos to analyse and comment on  -> doc A et B intro

Doc A : The opening picture is built as a timeline showing the evolution of mankind, from ape-like creatures in the background, to augmented beings who wear implants and who look like cyborgs, in the foreground. The picture was used as the cover of the April 2017 issue of National Geographic magazine, which dealt with transhumanism. At first, in the background, the first man is pictured as an ape, but the picture shows that humans have evolved, and the reason is shown in the foreground with the eye-implant: technology has enabled humans to make progress and become smarter and more advanced.

Doc B:  The three characters are very different and want to change either their bodies or skills/abilities. Zach used to be a sport guy when something happened to him (an accident?) He wants to be able to play his favourite sport again even if it means going through surgery or having to wear a special outfit. David is obese / overweight and everyone is making fun of him / taking a piss/ gives him shit about his weight. He cannot meet girls because of his appearance and wishes he had muscles –no fat – and get rid of his ridiculous nickname. As for Ted, he wishes he could control people’s minds and make them obey him.

Video to watch and summarize. What questions are asked? Write as many as you can.
