What humans will look like in 1,000 years

  • Added:  21 day ago
  • There will eventually be a day where prosthetics are no longer just for the disabled.

    However, it’s not just our outside appearance that will change – our genes will also evolve on microscopic levels to aid our survival. For example, an Oxford-led study discovered a group of HIV-infected children in South Africa living healthy lives. It turns out, they have a built-in defense against HIV that prevents the virus from advancing to AIDS.

    And with gene-editing tools like CRISPR, we may eventually control our genes and DNA to the point where we make ourselves immune to disease and even reverse the effects of aging.

    Another way to jump-start the human evolution on a different path is to move some of us to Mars. Mars receives 66% less sunlight than Earth. Which could mean humans on Mars will evolve larger pupils that can absorb more light in order to see. And since Mars’ gravitational pull is only 38% of Earth’s, people born on Mars might actually be taller than anyone on Earth. In space, the fluid that separates our vertebrae expands, which led American aerospace engineer, Robert Zubrin to suggest that Mars’ low gravity could allow the human spine to elongate enough to add a few extra inches to our height.

    However, not even a move to Mars could spark the biggest change in human evolution that we may have coming in the next 1,000 years: immortality. The path to immortality will likely require humans to download their consciousness into a machine. Right now, scientists in Italy and China are performing head transplants on animals to determine if you can transfer consciousness from one body to another. They claim their next big step is to transplant human heads.

    Whatever happens in the next 1,000 years — whether we merge with machines or become them — one thing is certain: The human race is always changing — and the faster we change and branch out from Earth, the better chance we have of outrunning extinction.

    Actually, maybe in only 150-200 years, we maybe won't have hair on the chest and legs, why? Because the hair is grown to make us warm. When we have shirt and pants, we don't need an extra warm. So that why maybe 200 years from now we won't have hair on most on the body :)

    Wait but why would people on Mars evolve bigger pupils? There would be no fight for survival if we colonized Mars (everyone would be safe with equal opportunity to reproduce) so there wouldn't be any natural selection to make any evolution like that. If I'm wrong please enlighten me but I don't think I am.

    But what benefit will it be if we live well beyond our natural lifespans? There would constantly be people being born, and very few people dying off. This would turn into population-overload. Will the retirement age be raised to 100? People can't possibly be expected to retire any earlier, otherwise the younger "generations" will resent the older generations, for having to work so much to support people who haven't worked in 30-40 years (assuming people are living to at least 100 or even 110). In fact, the younger generations will probably start PURPOSEFULLY killing off the older generations, so that new generations can be born, rather than having to halt breeding as to not over-populate the aged people's of earth. THERE WILL BE NO EVOLUTION if people have to lessen the amount of children they are able to have.

    Furthermore, who benefits? The richest people. And it of course is all about they themselves as an individual desperately trying to live as long as possible, to hold on to every goddamn last cent that they own, because it is all about nothing but greed. They will ironically probably also be Christian, who believe their next life is the most important one, but as always, they will be more obsessed with living as long as possible in this life than all the people who believe this is the ONLY life. It's elitist. People will wise up to what is happening, and kill off the people who ought to have died otherwise without all the technology to unnaturally extend their lives.
