I received more than a hundred resend mails yesterday; I send a mail just
before it happens. I think you all deleted them without regards as I do, so I
am resending my questions to the list.
I am preparing a draft paper on actual trends in evolution, and I consider
points like these:
- A hundred years from Mendel´s work revisited by de Vries and others and the
completion of the human genome sequence is not a good short term prospect
- Some sudamerican tribe demands for his blood taked by genome project´s
people. Like this Argentinean who, at divorce time, demands for the kidney he
gave to his wife.
- Projects as robots´screensaver may apart us from their reproduction process
- Biological viruses has 3 basic functions: to find a host, to alter its
information status, to replicate itself. Virus programs are the same. When we
will have an interfase with them?
- When a pilot sits at a flight simulator, who of them is learning at all?
What kind of evolution we pretend to lead?
"But, the fewer the genes the easier monster production will be, don´t you
I appreciate replies from Jeff Davis and Eugene.Leitl, particularly
"transrodent conspiracy" new concept. I think philosopher´s job is the new
concepts creation. Not so bad, Jeff.
If genes are fewer, it means greater body codification by each one. It makes
difficult to predict how this complex network of interactions will react.
Hazard has lead evolution, how we will stop it?
On the other hand, is this dreamed evolution for all people, or do we have to
consider more than one human specie, as when we share with Neanderthals, and
possibly help to their extintion?
Or it is been considered from now on?: "What is it that societies as disparate
as those we find in Colombia, Nigeria and Burma have in common that has held
them back from the benefits of real modernism? Why have attempts to aid
development in these countries proved so ineffective for so long? "
What real modernism is?
Do you really know what US aids here in Colombia is for?
Only *real modernist 1st and 2nd world* will become postmodern posthumans?
Any serious comment, gentlemen?
