Eugenics - the tinkering around with man in his present form is going to be interesting, if not cataclysmic. I think the sci/fi standard of the Super Soilder, from Captain America to the X-files, is still being actively sought.

The beings at the end of A.I. were evolved robots; the boy was their ancestor.( was anyone severely bummed out by that flick? Talk about a depressing vibe)

Mad Scientist - I had seen something online that postulated that those 'exercises' could be artificially induced, ergo making those multiple connections at rest. A super capacity brain.....the possibilities!

We are all be wiped out by some rouge comet .

If we don't get hit by a comet within the next 500-1000 years, we should have the technology to deal with it. Maybe even sooner.

first of all, i have only just now read this thread so i'm responding to several things

whoever said we are conglomerations of earlier hominids is wrong. The biggest theory involved in that was we were part early sapiens, part neandrathals, they later proved through DNA research that this was not true, we were just evolved sapien sapiens, nothing else.

No, we dont use only 5 percent of our brain, the person that said that we only use that amount at a time is closest to right. We use 100 percent of our brains over our lifetime, we only use 5-10 percent of of it at a time, we dont have any hidden areas of the brain that can be used, we can just use it more efficiently

yes, AI depressed me as well, i was very sad, i had to go search for a happy movie to watch after that sad tale.

we have over the centuries gotten progressively taller, anybody ever been to pompei? you would swear that all the people were children. i haven't heard the thing about wisdom teeth but it seems logical as well, personally i had to have them taken out, count yourself lucky you didn't, i couldn't eat anything for a week, wasn't fun

I tend to agree with whoever said we wont evolve much past this state physically other then getting bigger (i wonder how tall we will end up?) I think the only evolution we will do will be technological. i dont think we will ever evolve past our ability to understand our technology as a society, we're already close to the point that individuals can't understand every piece of technology they use (actually most of humanity is past that point) we will just continue to specialize...personally i see a rather bleak future in which we involve into somethin similiar to the borg on star trek, except more destructive and more individualistic

just going back to that thing about the 7%-10%, 90% brain use thing:

i heard that while we do only use about 12% of the brain, the rest is required to make sure that there is space between the electrical impulses so that there is no overheating or melting going on up there.

Take some Asid commenly refured to lsd to open up that back of the brain, I dont recomend somthing extremly harsh as far as the dose. But it has some intersting effects over time..

Pehaps not such a good idea but it is not just like you can get a dna shot from your local underground base.
