The world is changing, but we are not. We still need animal flesh & plants to survive, we need drinking water, our skin cannot tolerate temperature changes very well, our intellect is limited, our body cannot handle many of the newfound carcinogens, many of our emotions are overpowering & make the political landscape very dangerous, we spend too much time trying to get laid, it takes 4 years to learn a career trade, etc. It seems like our DNA was designed for a species that stopped existing thousands of years ago. The environment is changing constantly, we are about to start traveling in space, and nothing is certain anymore.
will a new type of DNA become the standard for future homo sapiens, or a DNA code tailored for each generations trials & tribulations, say 200 years in the future? i would assume that computers of the future will be able to design DNA which codes for forms of life much smarter, resilient, competent & able to handle the current environment they are in than our DNA can. As an example, perhaps there is a DNA code that can create a species of human that doesn’t require food, but can be plugged into an outlet for energy (not totally unrealistic, as ATP energy comes from electrons). That would solve the food shortages we may face. Or a species that had emotions more as a warning system, rather than an overpowering control system like we do.
Would this happen, or would it be stopped because we are ‘playing god’? Personally i am all for playing god, if we don’t do it who will.
