Solving the problems of being a human
A number of people like to say that the dolphin is as intelligent as a human. If you consider
that the number of layers in the human cortex is six and other mammals have fewer layers,
some would conclude that increasing the number of layers in the cortex might improve the
intelligence of the human.
In End to End Learning for Self-Driving Cars, (https://arxiv.org/abs/1604.07316v1) the
authors describe training a 9 layer neural network to drive a car with three front-facing
cameras similar to my newest Tesla. https://youtu.be/-96BEoXJMs0 may show you the car
being taught and then performing on its own.
Question 1: When will the number of layers in the human brain be increased by genetic
modification? If you don't think that this is coming relatively soon, view the video:
Question 2: When some people have an IQ that is much greater than the average person, will
these people be as more intelligent than "normal" people as "normal" people are more
intelligent than Gorillas? (Enhanced Humans : Humans :: Humans : Gorillas) Does this lead
to an increasing opinion that enhanced people are of a different species?
Q2a: When the UN describes Agenda 2100 as consisting of only 500 million humans, do their
plans include that those humans will be of a more advanced type?
Q2b: If improved humans follow the path of improved smartphones, will this lead to many more
improvements of various sorts so that there are really many new intelligent organic
organisms. How about super intelligent dolphins that can report on ocean activities?
Question 3: We know that poor Indian couples have children in the hope of having a son who
will gain entry to IIT and get a job which brings them out of poverty. Will these couples take
advantage of cheap CRISPR technology to create children with more intelligence?
If you don't think that CRISPR can be inexpensive, view the fellow selling kits for $140 each:
Question 4: Do you view the future as full of increased debt and dismal problems or full of new
inventions and full of abundance as does Peter Diamandis as he describes in his book
Question 5: Will restrictions on experimenting on humans in the US mean that these
breakthroughs will come in China rather than in western countries?
Question 6: If CRISPR is so cheap, will Genetic Hackers become as common in the future as
Computer Hackers are now?
Question 7: Curently MAKE magazine shows the average citizen how to make gadgets out of
common materials and inexpensive computer boards. Will a similar magazine spring up
showing you how to use CRISPR to make your own GMO corn, wheat, tomatoes, flowers etc?
