So, we have mixed jellyfish and human components to perhaps one day have laser shooting humans or some other such nonesense.
Recently I came across a very interesting article on how scientist have discovered the first true "immortal" creature. I present to you Turritopsis nutricula!
So what if this is a first step to mixing genes, dna or what have you with these jellyfish? Im sure the science is not there yet, but perhaps this is the desired end result.
So the conspiracy theory would go somthing like this:
The elite sucessful engineer the worlds first immortal humans, or manage to make themselves immortal. Great, but the world is overpopulated and in trouble, no sense in living forever if your quality of life is in decline.
So, you bury yourself in your bunker with seed vault and food stores to last you years. False wars ensue on the surface leading up to a nuclear armageddon. Populations are decimated and eventually stabilize. Remaining humans are reduced to tribal levels.
The elite emerge. They either rule over the tribes and gods and kings, or sterilize or exterminate them.
Selective breeding or sterilization among the elite would be required in order to ensure their continued, eternal rule over the world in comfort and assure overpopulaton would never be an issue. Resources will never run out and with their modern technology, they continue to grow and prosper. Forever.
The fountain of youth! Discovered, tapped and protected for all time.
Ps. A quick appology for the cross post. My original post was renamed and now looks very much like the other jellyfish posts. Not my intention, i wanted to start a discussion on where this might lead. Feel free to delete me first post.
