The possibility of extended cognition invites the possibility of extended knowledge. We examine what is minimally required for such forms of technologically extended (and distributed) knowledge to arise and whether existing and future technologies can allow for such forms of epistemic extension. Answering in the positive, we explore some of the ensuing transformations in the ethical obligations and personal rights of the resulting ‘new humans.’
