Dystopia refers to an anti-utopia, where the promise of modernity to improve the quality of life of man happens to take the form, rather, of a Hypermodernity (Lipovetsky), full of contradictions.
The present work seeks to project these issues into the near future. They are reflections about the transition to the post-human. What will be the new forms of behavior induced by technology, which at this moment are in primary phases of development but that, without doubt, will soon cease to be laboratory tests to be of daily use. The paradigms that will present, for example, what we can now consider as glimpses of the future: cloning, food, cybernetic devices, robotics, DNA manipulation, augmented reality or the search for new territories for migrations future. The panoptic as a symptom of a society that has lost its privacy. We live the change generated by the digital before current paradigms, global behaviors defined by communication platforms, where we stop recognizing ourselves and getting to know each other organically.
