According to the philosopher Antonio Dieguez, people no longer know what to do with so many technological advances. Ortega y Gasset mentioned this in the 1930s. When it comes to improving human life through gene editing and implantation of brain implants, we need to be very careful in this direction. The problem is that the changes people make are irreversible. As a result, it will affect the offspring.
Now, of course, scientists have made great strides in extending the lifespan of humans and animals. For example, they were already able to rejuvenate the mice. Research in humans is slower because aging is not considered a disease.
At the same time, if experts can prolong people’s lifespan by at least 20 years, great changes will occur in society. As a result, for example, a person will retire much later.
At the same time, if the problem of the high cost of drugs persists, the gap in longevity between different social classes will widen. It is also known that life expectancy is more affected by place of residence and not genetics.
Also, the day that humans can change the genome and reproduce in sequence, society will begin to divide. As a result, social division will turn into biological division. As a result, new life forms with completely different mental and physical characteristics will emerge. So the whole world will turn into a dystopia. There will already be elites who are biologically better than others. And these elites will become irreplaceable.
