OK, you can yell "Conspiracy Theory" if you like, there is even a word for it in scientific circles, Transhumanism. The Wikipedia entry for that presents a pretty scary picture. here's an extract:
Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+ or h+) is an international cultural and intellectual movement with an eventual goal of fundamentally transforming the human condition by developing and making widely available technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities. Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations, as well as study the ethical matters
involved in developing and using such technologies. They predict that
human beings may eventually be able to transform themselves into beings
with such greatly expanded abilities as to merit the label "posthuman"
