Altered Carbon (the novel) by Richard K. Morgan
Handled the transhumanism and immortality and VR and AI stuff really well a ways back, and it the basis for this show! It’s more bare-bones noir detective story, with less of the drama that characterized the Netflix adaptation.

Altered Carbon (the Netflix original series)
The series adaptation from the book! Cyberpunk! Noir detectives!
Immortality by transplant
Analogy with developments in head transplantation. Consciousness uploading. Preservation of identity. Conflict of human immortality with religion.
Transhumanism and Identity
The meaning of race and gender in a world where anyone can be any variety of human (and more). Merging with AI and technology in general.
The boundaries of the “self” and the “mind” and the meat. Hard to draw! The influence of the greater body system over the “self” part and boners. So many boners. But not from nipple stuff, no sir. 😑
