Actually, I am planning to become God in the long run, so I guess that will
mean some profound changes to my physical and mental properties. In the
meantime, however, I would like to add/change the following things:
--a studly (tall, fair and muscular) physique. Guess how I look now :(
--"perfect health" (highly efficient immune system, quick auto-repair etc.)
-- an accurate internal clock (much better the biological one) so I always
know the exact time without having to wear a watch.
--enhanced and fully (auto) adjustable hearing, sense of smell, sight
--a photographic memory that can be turned on or off at will.
--at least 2 "backup" brains in chest or abdominal cavity, all linked.
--generally enhanced brain function (quicker learning, better memory etc).
--implants (?) for encyclopaedic knowledge of history, maths, chemistry,
physics language and killing techniques (self defense) to name a few
--telepathic capabilities (internal radio?).
--superefficient, fully adjustable metabolism.
--some kind of built-in weaponry, possibly microwave/sonic devices.
--many other things that I can't think of right now...
