Is man to survive science?

by JEAN-PIERRE FILLARD | 18 May 2015
Category: Popular Science
In the early 21st century, the advances of science, followed by technology, have been very impressive and opened up hither to unthought-of prospects in every domain.Scientific "Previsionists" believe it will lay the foundation for deep changes in the human being. This is in no way a matter of science fiction but rather rational and foreseeable extrapolations of many recent results in various scientific fields. Will Man become a mutating GMO, a humanoid robot, a hybrid of both? Will his life be extended much longer or even indefinitely? Will he reproduce in vitro in the near future? These are questions we should begin to ask now, for our children will likely experience these changes, but our grandchildren will live in a quite different world.
