Provocation: The Future is looking good – Conway Mothobi

Posted by julian | Augmentation,Enhancement,Futurology,Technology | Friday 14 May 2010 11.20 am


The future is looking good. Upcoming developments in body enhancement and body enrichment will provide us with sophisticated cyborg humano-tools. For example with advances in stem cell research will be able to clone very little people (25mm ie 1 inch tall and 4 gm in weight * you would need 5 little people to match the weight of a lab mouse).

With this technology we will be able to go further in our space exploration. We will be able to launch *manned* missions in spacecraft the size of a drinks can.  These astronauts will have highly efficient bodies * they will be able to withstand very low pressures, they will have a very good tolerance of very low temperatures  eg holding dry nice at -78 deg Celsius; and tolerance of very high temperatures eg drinking boiling soybean cooking oil 300 deg Celsius. Other impacts will be the growth of cells in regular beings eg straight forward *grow your own body parts* * very useful in transgender surgery, breast augmentation. Prosthetic enhancements and enrichments will allow people to move more easily.  Some of these developments will become the basis for a movement to ban the Olympics and other able bodied sport as we know it (football, tennis etc) and recast the Special Olympics (Paralympics)in its place as the standard Olympics.

    When someone writes an piece of writing he/she keeps the thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can know
    it. So that’s why this paragraph is amazing.

    fresh spin on a topic which has been discussed for decades.

    Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the
    simplest thing to take note of. I say to you, I certainly get
    irked whilst other folks consider concerns that they just do not recognise
    about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also
    outlined out the entire thing with no need side effect , other people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search
    Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very
    good results. If you know of any please share.

    The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge features the Android 5.0 Lollipop operating system by Google. The latest version includes features such as the Material Design interface, which makes the system simpler and easier to navigate.

    Protein from plants tend to work very well as snacks throughout the day.

    This allows for the nutrients to pass more efficiently to
    the muscles, which means growing bigger. Some other foods
    to keep in mind would be a balance of vegetables and fruit.

    The body doesn’t understand that you’re on a diet, the only thing the body understands is that
    it’s starving. Starvation – Some people think by avoiding
    all food they will lose weight fast. Almost every person tries to make weight loss as
    easy as possible or they at least want it to be easy.

    Just make sure that you do brisk walking as well as
    walk for not less than 20 minutes. This enzyme has
    the ability synthesize large protein molecules to easily absorbable amino acids and polypeptides.
    Though, it carries lots of importance in a cosmetic and glamour
