Teilhard de Chardin and transhumanism - complexification
Steinhart, E. (2008). Teilhard de Chardin and transhumanism. 
Journal of Evolution and Technology 20, 1–22. 
... Teilhard refers to the emergence of increasingly complex systems as complexification. Today we are more likely to talk about self-organization. ... degrees of complexity correspond to degrees of consciousness. (Teilhard, 1955, The Phenomenon of Man, pages 60-61, 301).
Teilhard and Kurzweil:... Teilhard’s writings outline a series of epochs of complexity. These closely resemble the six epochs of complexity described by Kurzweil (2005: 7-33). 
... Christians will increasingly pay it their attention. They may feel increasingly threatened by transhumanism and come to see it as a heresy (Bainbridge, 2005).
Various conservative Christians have already opposed transhumanism (Wiker, 2003; Hook, 2004; Daly, 2004; Hart, 2005).
