On H+ in Deus Ex: Human Revolution

An interview on GameShark speaks with Jean-Francois Dugas of Eidos Montreal about Deus Ex: Human Revolution, ambitiously discussing the elements of transhumanism in the upcoming action/RPG prequel. Here's a bit on that topic:

Once again, transhumanism brings a lot of hope in terms of improving who we are but it also brings a lot of questions because we can look at who we are from a natural position where we are what we are and we should stay like that. So now weíre entering in to ethical problems and moral issues and depending on the background of different people they have different opinions on the subject.

I think with the game weíre trying to reflect those different opinions through the story and through the characters youíre going to meet in some of the missions and let the player explore it in some of the decisions theyíre going to have to make. Itís about getting the player into that fantasy and getting them to answer the questions and figure out what they think about it. Itís in the background but it also comes to the forefront during the missions where youíre asked to do things and have to make a decision. Iím trying to stay very vague because I donít want spoilers; these issues are some of the most impactful in the game.

And if they were, i would argue that one of them would need to be altered in such a way that they are not 100% identically, gene wise.)

Your are right though that physically clones would be human but when you say

a clone ...... the same DNA

then you are basically building my argumentation why a clone can NEVER be considered human.

Ok, but if you were cloned, and it was 100% identical, maybe it'd be you who's no longer human!
