The recent development of NBIC (Nanotechnology, Biotechnology, Information Technology, and Cognitive Sciences) is giving rise to new expectations regarding human possibilities. The pressure of these new technological possibilities, expressed through the increasingly pervasive interaction between humans and machines, may induce a potential crisis in traditional values, driven not so much by new discoveries but often by ideology. We propose a brief evaluation of current human enhancement trends, emphasizing the interdisciplinary aspect, with a focus on the interplay between theology and technology. The reinterpretation, reconfiguration, and crisis of some traditional values, including knowledge, in the revolutionary context of intensified collaboration between humans and machines, raise questions about the fulfilment of human potential. What consequences might this have in terms of human fulfilment?
