- n. Plural form of parahuman.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
But this is a film that is, at least ostensibly, about the responsibilities of science and scientists, about the blurring the line between research and commerce, about the ethics and perils of creating genetically engineered hybrids, chimeras, and parahumans, and about making contact with a genuinely alien intelligence (even if the "alien" was created on Earth).
These fictions are anticipatory, prophetic texts for the parahumans we might find in our global culture.
