"As the potential for enhancement technologies migrates from the theoretical to
the practical, a difficult and important decision will be imposed upon human
civilization, namely the issue as to whether or not we are morally obligated to
biologically enhance nonhuman animals and integrate them into human and
posthuman society. Precedents for intra-species cultural uplift abound in human
history, providing both sobering and edifying episodes showcasing the
possibilities for the instigated and accelerated advancement of technologically
delayed societies."
