Change The Blueprint [Jul. 21st, 2005|10:01 am]
Tony Grist
The human body is in urgent need of a re-design.

I mean, basically, it's the same monkey body we had when we first traipsed out of the woods and onto the savannahs.

It's built to last about 25 years. After which time it starts going wrong. We've quadrupled our life expectancy, but without upgrading the vehicle. And so we spend three quarters of our life-span in a body that's performing well below its best. How stupid is that?

We accept that an athlete is past it by thirty. How abject!

And it's so fragile. Why settle for skin and bone when you could have titanium?

Well, of course, Data was Data. But I would think that Data-like 'replacement parts' for humans would work. However, then wouldn't athletic competition have to change? YOu couldn't have unenhanced competing with bionic and have it be fair...

I guess you'd have to create separate categories.

At present replacement parts are, generally speaking, inferior to the originals- but I don't suppose it'll be long before reality catches up with the comic books and we'll be creating bionic supermen and superwomen.
