What Will Humans Look Like in 2033?

Posted: Mon, March 11, 2013 | By: David A. Kekich



Dear Future Centenarian,

We won’t look much different than we do now, but we may SEE much better.

Not only that, but we should look, perform and feel much better too. I invite you to check out this video to see what is happening in that regard today. And as the carney barker says, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.”

See the link below: 

In case you didn’t click on that link, let me tell you what you may want to see:

*  Today’s cyborgs: Losing a limb, an eye and other body parts isn’t what it used to be.

* How man and machines are merging, and why we humans will be superhuman.

* Brain/machine interfaces… and just SOME of the implications.

* Will we someday OPT for prosthetics and trash our limbs… and even organs?

Some of this scares many people. It’s perfectly okay, and even desirable to replace a lost limb. But would it be okay to replace our legs with prosthetics to make us faster, stronger, more durable and injury-proof?

How about augmenting our brains so we can think faster, remember better and just be… well… smarter?

Physically and mentally speaking, our futures are bright. Besides being stronger and smarter, how about aches and pains? For the most part, probably history.

Parkinson’s patients have had chips implanted in their brains for years to mitigate their symptoms. Paralyzed people wirelessly control computers, wheelchairs and more with their thoughts, thanks to neural implants.

Why should they be the “lucky” ones. With more advancements in the technologies, which are accelerating at lightning speed by the way, why shouldn’t we be able to do the same – but way more? Imagine accessing any information you want from the Internet, simply by thinking your question.

We’ve already started down this path, and you may be faced with some of these options sooner than you think. When you are, I wonder how you will react. And we’ve just scratched the surface of endless possibilities.

One thing’s certain. Most who resist these possibilities today will embrace them once they become commonplace. It wasn’t too long ago that conventional wisdom dictated that anesthesia for childbirth should be forbidden.

Times change… and so will we.

More Life,

David Kekich

“Times change… and so will we.”

The only constant is change itself.

Granted that what has been described will be true in 2033, how many lucky souls will have the rights to enjoy all the wonderful “extras”? Perhaps only the rich and the powerful.
Who knows by then, most humans would not have consumed themselves in wars?
