Cybernetics and Genetic Engineering

    • Cybernetics and Genetic Engineering

      Cybernetics present a future to mankind, the ability to repair or replace damaged organs. The ability to extend the human lifespan, perhaps indefinitely.
      Similarly, genetic engineering will undoubtedly benefit mankind in the future. The ability to select genes we want to change in animals and plants and, perhaps, in ourselves. To grow crops immune to illness and crops that produce enough food to feed all mankind. The possibility to completely eradicate genetic disorders, congenital defects and everything that has so long plagued humanity. We will be able to transcend the boundries of our biological existance. We will begin evolution on a path of our own creation.

      These things are the future, they merit attention.
      If you are reading this, you are a total git!
      Curiosity killed the git. HAHA Oh well, I suppose you were clever enough
      To find this.

    • Why would reading this make us a total git? By the term "git", are you referring to:
      Git is a term of insult with origins in [English] denoting an unpleasant, silly, incompetent, annoying, senile, elderly or childish person. As a mild oath it is roughly on a par with prat and marginally less pejorative than berk.

      Do you think of yourself as a git? We often refer to others by how we feel about ourselves. ;)

      There is something to be said for genetic engineering, as long as it isn't abused.
