What humans will look like in 1,000 years

  • Added:  2 months ago
  • There will eventually be a day where prosthetics are no longer just for the disabled.

    However, it’s not just our outside appearance that will change – our genes will also evolve on microscopic levels to aid our survival. For example, an Oxford-led study discovered a group of HIV-infected children in South Africa living healthy lives. It turns out, they have a built-in defense against HIV that prevents the virus from advancing to AIDS.

    And with gene-editing tools like CRISPR, we may eventually control our genes and DNA to the point where we make ourselves immune to disease and even reverse the effects of aging.

    Another way to jump-start the human evolution on a different path is to move some of us to Mars. Mars receives 66% less sunlight than Earth. Which could mean humans on Mars will evolve larger pupils that can absorb more light in order to see. And since Mars’ gravitational pull is only 38% of Earth’s, people born on Mars might actually be taller than anyone on Earth. In space, the fluid that separates our vertebrae expands, which led American aerospace engineer, Robert Zubrin to suggest that Mars’ low gravity could allow the human spine to elongate enough to add a few extra inches to our height.

    However, not even a move to Mars could spark the biggest change in human evolution that we may have coming in the next 1,000 years: immortality. The path to immortality will likely require humans to download their consciousness into a machine. Right now, scientists in Italy and China are performing head transplants on animals to determine if you can transfer consciousness from one body to another. They claim their next big step is to transplant human heads.

    Whatever happens in the next 1,000 years — whether we merge with machines or become them — one thing is certain: The human race is always changing — and the faster we change and branch out from Earth, the better chance we have of outrunning extinction.

  • Matasuuuuu

    Okay this scared the shit out of me. I honestly don't think inmortality is a GOOD thing. Like, come on. Do you really think that living forever is as good as it seems? Imagine thinking about something that happened over 1000 years ago. Imagine trying to keep up with everything that happens everyday for over 1000 years. Don't you think you'll go insane? In any case, if inmortality is a choice, I'd rather die at some point, to be honest. I don't think humans are meant to live forever. Death is a part of life, a very important one, and I reckon it shouldn't be avoided once it has naturally come

    I feel like you were never properly educated on evolution. To begin with, even if we could evolve any further, it would take much, much longer than 1,000 years. Not to mention that because of the current state of society (most people have access to preliminary healthcare) it isn't only the smart, or the strong, that survive to breed now. Basically, the only way we could advance any further is through modifications to our body, and still, that wouldn't be considered "evolution".

    Bruh, immortality will never work because if we lived forever and people are being born still, we're gonna run out of space for everybody eventually and there's gonna be a war for the last resources, basically causing our extinction.

      why would that be sad? if everyone eventually merged into one skin tone, that means we've overcome racial issues. nobody would be discriminated against, especially because everyone looks the same.

    Most of the things here described will likely happen within the next 100 years, not 1,000. In 1,000 we will likely merge with machines and live in simulations or have such complete mastery over DNA and protein manipulation that we could change our bodies to whatever the hell we want.

    Like it or not, the age of machines is rapidly approaching.
