To explore paleoclimatology, for example, students interpret a tree-ring record to learn that the width and shape of the tree ring is dependent on environmental conditions. Philosopher Nick Bostrom recently described a "posthuman" as an individual who has gone beyond "the maximum attainable capacities by any current human being without recourse to new technological means."
