A form of transhumanism, body modifications are made to enhance the human form.
They were pioneers...
A bright and cheerful voice filled the climate-controlled room. ‘Good morning Fallon, it is November 14th, 2065. Your time to wake today is 6.30am. Your morning exercise routine starts in five minutes. Your shower will begin at 6.55am and finish at 6.58am. Breakfast today will consist of fruit only. Information regarding your nutritional requirements for the day has been sent to the food preparation terminal”.
THE EVOLUTION OF SEX
The need for tactile closeness always deluded me. I observe these two now, on the tube home. No doubt an afternoon of drinking and longing and gentle brush strokes to the back of their respective hands, creating a chemical furore within the coiled depths of equal sexes.
Fear? Not if you use mind control and biohacking?
Probably you’ve heard about hacking smartphones, emails, cards, computers. Even hacking elections. But what about hacking your body? What?! This concept is called biohacking and it’s really all about self-improvement. The possibilities are endless, all around the idea that we can change our bodies and our brains using technology. Maybe you’ve read about a former NASA employee injecting himself with DNA using gene-editing technology CRISPR. Maybe you’ve heard of some folks engaging in “dopamine fasting” or you have a colleague who’s had a chip implanted in his hand. These are all types of biohacking also known as DIY biology. It’s a difficult term to explain because it involves a huge range of activities, from performing science experiments to pumping a younger person’s blood into veins in the hope that it’ll fight old age. (is a real thing, and it’s called a young blood transfusion).
Living Robots Are Now Capable of Mass Self-Reproduction
We have stepped into a new future, a "Twilight Zone" future where robots called xenobots can now procreate. The possibilities of this new biological capability are both awe-inspiring, and scary.
The Runner That locket was the key to everything, but no one paid noticed it because it was sitting in a trash heap by the border in Astoria. This locket was on an exceptionally long chain that looked like intertwined leaves. The locket itself was a heart-shaped rose complete with a stem and thorns. Made of a pinkish gold, the metal was almost dull looking because of all the dirt. If you opened the locket, you would see a picture of a young girl no more than 5 with brown curly hair decorated with pink clips; a butterscotch complexion with the biggest brown eyes and dimples you have ever seen. On the other side of the locket, a set of letters and numbers etched into the metal: A538G2-64. What this all means right now is nothing because it is not time yet. Right now, this locket is just another piece of garbage sitting in a trash heap. What is more important is how it was found…
Lock & Key
“Hey, would you have some time to talk?” Carlos looks up from his screen. Anthony is standing on the other side of the door, leaning against the wall and nervously biting his thumb nail. This is the first time the couple have spoken in over a week. A week of gifts and flowers and letters and space and knocking and an empty bed.
Shirley Branson felt a twinge in her chest. At age 98 she had felt many things in her chest – love, congestion, indigestion, pride, and pressure among them. But rarely if ever a twinge.
To Save The Earth
To Save The Earth: From your typical human beings John W. Gilmore The gray haired gentlemen, dressed in a dark suit and tie, stood behind the podium and spoke into the microphone clearly, and distinctly. One could tell that he was used to it.
Tales from New Bethlehem: An experiment with death
"Ahhhh.. got me armor? You finally finished it? Well its about damn time!" "Yes...yes...well the specs you wanted weren't easy to come by. The harness alone took me several months to complete. Fortunately for you, I do my best work under pressure."
Was it me or my implant?
“It becomes a part of you”, is how patient 6 describes the device that changed her life after a 45-year history of severe epilepsy. Implanted brain electrodes send signals to a hand-held device as soon as signs of an impending epileptic seizure appear. A warning tone now reminds the patient to suppress the impending seizure with medication. “You grow into it slowly and get so used to it that at some point it becomes commonplace,” she tells neuroethics Frederic Gilbert from the Australian University of Tasmania, who works with brain-computer interfaces (BCI).
I KNOW THERE IS MELANIN SOMEWHERE
I'm not white. I'm not black. I'm not rich. I'm not poor. I'm not a man. I'm not always perceived as a woman. I'm not intelligent, or rather a genius.
CRISPR, short for CRISPR-Cas9, is a technology that has the potential to change the world in the very near future. CRISPR is starting to become of great interest not only to scientists and researchers but to many people fascinated by the vast number of benefits it has to offer human health. Some of the health benefits include an efficient anti-aging treatment, the elimination of genetic disorders, and being a potential cure for life threatening cancers and horrific autoimmune disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis.
