The Next Step In Human Evolution?

Do you think that the next evolution of the human body will be Natural (100% Human), Mechanical (Robotic bodies/Robotic body parts), or Technological (Living in a cyber world)?

Tell me what you guys think and remember I could care less if you disagree with me, I just want to see how others view, interpret, and answer the questions. People need to see different ideas and different answers from different people, so that everyone can expand on their own knowledge and thought processes.

  1. Mechanical/Technological, definitely. I believe it will be a combination of physical modifications and an increased, more complete existence online-to the extent of virtual environments and "being" online in a more literal sense.
    I say bring it on.

  2. im believing your view... almost everything is online now besides food.. but you can get that delivered

  3. All of the above. Eventually it might even come to a point where natural and mechanical evolution aren't even distinguishable from one another. Still some years down the line, but for now we will see advances in all of them.

  4. I think we'll remove ourselves out of existence before the next major feet in human evolution. =(

  5. The next step in evolution? I don't really care so long as I get a laser sword and eyes that see into forever!

  6. humans being robotic, i really don't wanna know what the odd person would be having sex with to have some kind of robotic gene in their DNA

  7. the next step is AI that has become self aware.

  8. Hmm, in regards to transhumanism, I certainly see bio-augmentations in our future. Its a disturbing thought, we'll be furthering ourselves in becoming more and more indestructible. Its very unnatural

  9. I think humanity will destroy itself before the next evolution step. A technological cyber world would be cool, but unlikely.

  10. I agree with Joe Somebody, the next step really is AI that is self aware. We are advancing so much that this is now the technological age, it will just progress further

  11. Tech defiantly we make other things evolve around us.

  12. A hybrid body with both organic man-made parts and mechanical man-made parts.

  13. definitely a man and machine merge

  14. in a long future i think we will be able to improve some of our capabilities with mech parts merged with out body

  15. I don't see much natural evolution happening anymore. I think we've reached the point where we're almost all equal opportunities no matter what disadvantages we may have. I see mechanical evolution happening, mainly mechanical organ replacements or limb replacements.

  16. Due to recent descoveries, 100% physical

  17. Definetely mehcanical, because that's how it already started; missing arms/legs are replaced with mechanical ones, same as eyes, etc. etc.

  18. We have some mechanical arms and legs!
    but like JMiranda said scientist are studying a way of regeneration! One man had just regenerate one cutted finger!

  19. Have you heard the tool song 46 & 2? it is about getting our new pair of chromosome and evolving into what is next.

  20. Humanity has biologically evolved to as far as we can, really. However, the next "evolution" per se, would be having technology so advanced that we choose our biological aspects.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I think it'll be organic, non of that cyborg thing, with all this stem cell thing going on and genetic engineering advancing we won't need the mechanical parts.

  22. if using our extensive intellect to craft our own evolution is "unnatural" then we aren't yet fit to evolve

    ReplyDelete
  23. With the way we are evolving with technology, it would not surprise me if we eventually became something similar to Star Treks Borg race. we already are using mechanical devices in the human body such as pace makers, and faux bones.

  24. I can see it being a combination of the 3 scenarios you mentioned... a slight biological evolution, then maybe mechanical, and then finally we enter the virtual domain... great blog!

  25. Technological would be the best for me. The faster human will become immortal - the better. I'm getting old, lol
