Fear ; A future Apocalypse

Fear ; A future Apocalypse

Fear is a Religion which everyone worships circumspectively. No matter how little there is a bit of fear in each single one of us. From the fear of what the future holds to the fear of the past catching up with the present and ruining all you have ever worked for, to the fear of getting out of your comfort zone and trying out something new to the fear of contracting the deadly Corona Virus(yes that’s a precarious type of fear!).
Who knows what will come to pass twenty-five years from now?. Scientific research and technological developments are moving at a far faster rate than most of us can grasp. Before now Scientist took longer time in generating cures to diseases that wiped out entirety of Generations. Check out the Black Death caused by “Yersinia Pestis” a flea-dwelling bacterium that killed tens of thousands of people in Asia by just the bite of a deadly flea. Let’s also consider the deadly waves of Flu, measles that got the whole of Mexico yesteryears ago. Nevertheless, Scientist cannot just proffer solutions to newer diseases; they can also engineer newer ones.
Invitro fertilization is not far-fetched in this generation, imagine a future where the survival chances of a baby gotten from this procedure is above 90% and you could edit special features in your child’s DNA in just a test tube(how awesome!). I know you wouldn’t mind increasing your Child’s memory retention, and also adding a splash beauty to behold. With this type of technology, in the nearest future we would have super humans walk the earth, and I am super scared of that future I must say.
A quote from the book “Homo deus” by Yuvah Noah Harari says “once technology enables us to re-engineer human minds, Homo-Sapiens(humans of now,you and I) will disappear, human history will come to an end a completely new kind of process will begin, which people like you and I cannot comprehend”. Once again I admit my fear for this certain future. I hope you are not as scared as I am.
