Is Man to Survive Science? by Jeanpierre Fillard

By Jeanpierre Fillard

Within the early twenty first century, the advances of technological know-how, through expertise, were very amazing and unfolded hither to unthought-of clients in each domain.Scientific "Previsionists" think it is going to lay the root for deep adjustments within the man or woman. this is often certainly not a question of technology fiction yet relatively rational and foreseeable extrapolations of many fresh leads to a variety of clinical fields. Will guy develop into a mutating GMO, a humanoid robotic, a hybrid of either? Will his lifestyles be prolonged for much longer or maybe indefinitely? Will he reproduce in vitro within the close to destiny? those are questions we must always start to ask now, for our kids will most probably adventure those adjustments, yet our grandchildren will reside in a particularly assorted international.

How Did We Get There? 11 Compilation of significant historical events from Big Bang until today (After Kurzweil5). The graph shows the delay between two successive events as a function of the time-lag (inverted scale). successive events whatever their nature (astronomic, geologic, biologic or human as well) whereas the y-axis refers to their date of emergence. It can be clearly concluded that the shifts that, in the beginning, were in the range of million years, now converge towards much shorter values.
