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.

This is why we need human studies. So natural sciences doesn't run amok with crazy things.

In 1,000 Years, we will all be the Walking Dead.

Is this about evolution or development? The only thing he said about evolution was right at the beginning. The rest has nothing to do how we could look like in 1.000 years.
Nic Tanghe
We will all be dead due to climate change.

God wont allow us to find immortality, but if we find it maybe the end of the world will be sooner than we ever tought
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

don't do the head swap D:

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".

This wont happen if people continued to ruin earth by increasing its heat through pollution, meat eating. Gd luck humans
funny
this looks scary

Just waste 2:52 min of my life to hear some shit that i ain't gonna see. I'm sure YouTube won't even existe by then so fuck that fake ass shit.
Maureen Roy
O-kay, the head transplant thing is JUST NOT OKAY. What a horrible thing to do to animals, or humans.
Mandie Meier
immortality...tf...y'all never seen black mirror?
huntinater6k
Well since we don't let humans with serious disabilities die off then those disabilities will become a greater % of future population
Bc-ology Studios
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.

A freaky thing I think of is how all our social media posts are going to be around for quite a while. Sites like Facebook, Instagram, youtube, etc will become graveyards of people.

If humans merge or download their brains that will automatically be the extinction of the our race we will be living beings on a vessel.
