Some say that science is moving way too fast. It is true that the fast pace of advances is in fact increasing and exponentially too. Human civilizations and society are already out pacing evolution by 100-fold. Can the human species handle the fast moving future? Many say that we are quickly approaching the replacing of God, where humans become god and modify ourselves and advance our evolution as we see fit? Many decry this and are afraid of change and point to biblical quotes to show why it is wrong.
Many say they want no part of it themselves and do not want anyone else to have the modern advances of science either. But anyone who says that they do not want to be more fulfilled, happier, healthier, smarter or stronger is not telling the truth or being honest with them selves. That is to say no one wants to be a human with Diabetes, Cancer, bad knees, fractured disk, Parkinson ‘s or living with the energy of an 80-90 year old taking Viagra, if you could be young again. Everyone would you prefer to be 30 something, happy healthy, energetic, fully engaged in mind, body and soul with a brain working at its peak with a multiple of 3 to 5 or 10, or 100, right?
If science can do this and you can remain human wouldn’t you do it? And if later on you decided to trade out parts, because you reasoned with your smarter brain of 10-fold, maybe then you might change your mind and rather enjoy such modification. You might consider the comments about human modification rather shallow at that point. I see that scenario unfolding, a transition, but it maybe faster than we think. Not the 200-400 years Sci Fi Authors talk about, but 30-50 years and yes that will mean in our lifetime and we may all live forever or until we wish to no longer exist in this realm? Think on this.
