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.

    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.

    I think that most people will be mixed race (<85%), multiple births will be more common, certain traits, like polydactyly, will be less uncommon, and that the earth will actually recover due to finding more efficient energy sources, but we will still have to become a multi-planetary species to accommodate the rising population. I wish I could live long enough to see it!

    no matter how incredibly intelligent we become, how many alien planets and aliens we meet and see, no matter how perfect life in our universe becomes we will eventually in about 10^100 years die out - All of the black holes in the universe will evaporate, leaving us with nothing more than a warm (and quickly cooling) bath of photons. This is the ultimate consequence of the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics: Entropy – disorder, as we usually describe it – will get greater and greater until it maxes out. The universe simply can't be more disordered than a uniform swamp of low-energy photons.
