RE: Our Humanity: The Price To Pay For Technological Advancement?

in #steemstem3 years ago

I didn't see the movie you mentioned (and I won't watch the video from the office, even during my lunch break :p)

Honestly, I do not know what to think of all of that. If this is where we go, well fine. But I have concerns: this should be regulated. Will non-augmented humans be considered as the "inferior race"? This would ring some alarm bells and I would prefer all of this to be clarified before hand.

Sort:  

But I have concerns: this should be regulated.

Exactly my point. There's still time to regulate these technologies and to define their limits. But how will this work?

Will non-augmented humans be considered as the "inferior race"?

Obviously this should be expected. Even in evolution, for example, survival is almost always based on the best fitted (survival of the best fitted). In the case of this technology, augmented humans may be better fitted and definitely favoured for survival (because the standard of survival might be raised so high) and the others may be seen as inferior race.

Thanks for coming around sir

The "how to:" is very unclear, but it is very timely to define this now. After, it may be too late (and this is were problems may arise.

Have you seen by any chance this movie called "Gattaca"?

I am not so convinced of that. The timescales behind evolution are such that there is actually no way to predict the outcome. This is at least my opinion.

I agree with you. It's better all these are addressed now, but only if politics will not interfere with it.

I've not seen the movie "Gattaca" but I just googled it. It's a 1997 film. I'll look out for it. Thanks a lot sir

Me being the one recommending movies to you... The world is upside down tonight :D

Hahaha. You got me there sir. I actually had this same thought though. Looks like the world moved in reverse this night :D

Like the Reverse Flash? :D

More like Savitar :)

Y. Noah urges governments to begin to pay attention to this. He claims that if such issues are not looked into sooner than later, similar to what you suggested, humans will become first the "useless class" and then, the obsolete race :/

As said in my new comment above, it is better to treat a problem before it comes one... But then. politics...
