What humans will look like in 1,000 years

Tech InsiderTITechScienceInnovationDigital cultureDesignTechnologyprostheticsHumansFutureEvolutionDNABiology

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.

Honestly, after all these new age trends I really do not look forward to the future at all. I'd rather go back in time.

Why do people want to live forever? Life is meant to be enjoyed and by living forever that's impossible. Imagine if everyone lived forever and began reproducing. If we don't die, we will overpopulate the earth. Time won't matter anymore and precious moments like Christmas or your birthday won't be so precious. Why do people want this? Why do people want to evolve and become addicted to technology? I know I'm using YouTube right now, but technology already is ruining our lives. People are on their phones while eating dinner, at school, we go on our phones when we should be listening to someone. We use technology in almost every aspect of our lives, and it isn't good. People are lazy to walk short distances, so they use cars to drive only 2 miles! Companies are creating cars that can drive on their own. That's pure laziness. We don't need any more technology 'advancements' and we certainly don't need to go to Mars. If people did not populate the Earth to overpopulation this would not be a problem. Why don't countries set up laws that limit you to have only 1-2 children instead of letting parents have around 5. It isn't fair. If people didn't reproduce like rabbits, we wouldn't have to go to Mars or other planets to overpopulate them too. If it weren't for the laziness and stupidity of people this video would be very different and I am angry at the people who support overpopulating other planets because one is not enough. I don't understand what our world has come to.

Everything needs to become extinct at some point, trying to escape it will just kill any new life trying to still survive.

All I can really think of is how our supposed "evolution" could fuck up the environment. Also, prosthetics aren't really anything of evolution, more just an advancement in our understanding of technology.

Wouldn't mind having my head translanted onto a hot woman body. As long as my counciousness goes along with it.
For research purposes of course.

Actually, maybe in only 150-200 years, we maybe won't have hair on the chest and legs, why? Because the hair is grown to make us warm. When we have shirt and pants, we don't need an extra warm. So that why maybe 200 years from now we won't have hair on most on the body :)
