Must We Enhance Ourselves?

Will technology become so all-pervasive and powerful that an ordinary, intelligent human being won't be able to keep up?

Are we going to have to breed ourselves stronger and smarter just to get by? Just to survive?

Or could we allow normal reproduction to continue, and then once a person reaches adult age, give them a few options? Like genetic enhancements, or technological implants?

I read somewhere that by 2050, if we're not "jacked in" somehow, like with a brain chip implant, we won't be able to comprehend the changes taking place around us.
