I've just recently finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution and it got me to thinking: What if the technologies present in the Deus Ex series were available today? I know there's work being done on all sorts of genetic therapies and prosthesis and the like now but, nowhere near as advanced. My question is: What's your stance on the issue? What if there were clinics available that you could walk into and hours later walk out with a new arm/leg/part-of-some-kind that allowed you to do things you never could have with the parts God gave you? - Would you jump at the chance to become augmented? Is it ethical or moral to augment the human body to do things it isn't physically capable of at the time? Is forced evolution/adaptation something, you personally, would prescribe to? Is it ethical/moral in your eyes? If so, should it be regulated and be a government matter or should the corporations have free reign to do as they please with these technologies? Personally, I'm all for it. I believe that God gave us the intelligence to further our species in an infinite number of directions; including furthering ourselves to meet those challenges. What's at the bottom of the ocean? Who knows but, if we could engineer suits and augmentations to withstand the pressures, why shouldn't we find out? Same goes for space. There are so many things within and without this Earth that are calling as loudly as the can to be seen and discovered. Why shouldn't we as a species use every available means to find and see those things? Plus, I just think it would be wicked cool to walk around with robotic limbs that can withstand the impact from a 50ft jump or lungs that can filter toxic chemicals. Don't you?
