“That is kind of dreadful to many people so they get very upset and start defending disease, sickness and death very strongly.
“It’s weird because if one believed their arguments we should be shutting down hospitals left and right and having people naturally and painfully die which of course people don’t normally do. Normally we are very keen on having good hospitals and ambulances.”
Mr Sandberg is the co-founder of Swedish thinktank Eudoxa and previously chaired the Swedish Transhumanist Association.
Transhumanist ideas have been gaining ground over recent years, with transhumanist political parties emerging in countries across the world including the UK.
An American transhumanist, Zoltan Istvan, recently ran against Trump for the 2020 Republican Presidential nomination.
Mr Sandberg also suggested advances in AI and drugs that improve human abilities are likely to play a role in the future.
