While not an exact illustration of transhumanism, Futurama does show a future of vast technological ability, where today’s everyday problems are rendered moot, and yet the characters on the show still seem to find themselves in some very non-euphoric emotional states. Does this disprove what transhumanists expect for our future? Do transhumanists underestimate the hedonic treadmill’s effect, that we will all get used to improvements as soon as we make them?
