We are becoming a new species, we are becoming Homo Evolutis

We are becoming a new species, we are becoming Homo Evolutis

At TED 2009, Juan Enriquez talked about the new human species emerging before our eyes. Thanks to an array of biological advances and our growing aptitude in robotics, we now find ourselves in the early days of the deliberate creation of what he called a new species.

What made Enriquez’ presentation so engaging was that his vision wasn’t that far off, this sci-fi future that he spoke of; it’s the future that is unveiling itself right before us, a future that we will all likely watch arrive, and our children will come to know as reality
humanity is on the
verge of becoming a new and utterly unique species, which he dubs Homo Evolutis
What makes this species so unique is that it “takes direct and
deliberate control over the evolution of the species
Calling it the
“ultimate reboot,” he points to the conflux of DNA manipulation and
therapy, tissue generation, and robotics as making this great leap
possible
