Body in store

Man can improve their bodies by purchasing upgrades in shops - strength, agility, endurance, ability to interact with the Internet of things without wires and touches (neuron interfaces), improved vision (eg, infrared spectrum), the ability to breathe under water and so on. But the main challenge will be to improve human brain. Indeed, high intelligence and the ability to make the right strategic decisions is not favorable to any of the existing political systems. Therefore, the chances are that the augmentation of such features as IQ, memory, logical thinking, physical ability for self-learning and training and others won’t be available to everyone. The main threat is that such an access to self-upgrades can literally take people very quickly to a new stage of evolution and make them different from the rest of humanity in terms of mental capacity, morality, and other aspects, just as we are different from monkeys in terms of our mental abilities.

Connor I dont fully agree with this, but it could be very useful. 24 May 2019
Dragoncat I agree with this a lot, if people were more logical, with higher IQ's, and could realize manipulation, as well as be as right as possible, besides the fact that they'd be segregated because of how different they are but they less mentally capable, they'll also have the plus of not being susceptible to manipulation, and could make the best decisions possible, making them very good at a lot of things many people aren't good at because there constrained by a normal brain. We already can see this in the fact that more intelligent people are usually "weirder", and somewhat outcasted depending on how weird they are, which usually goes hand and hand with intelligence. 04 May 2019
Ilya Babayev The population must be sick, addicted, weak to be controlled easily. Upgrades will be available only for "the ones". The majority of people will suffer from TV, YouTube, alcohol, narcotics, fastfood etc. Welcome to the future. 06 Feb 2019
Katyusha Anderson think broader. Perhaps by 2050, complete synthetic humans will have been created for people's consciousness to be put into. The synthetics will not be like robots. They will have sensory and emotions just like us. this will not just be in tokyo, but all over the planet. what you say is very truthfull 06 Feb 2019
Антон Дождиков Полностью поддерживаю. "Мозговые импланты" создадут невиданную доселе сегрегацию между людьми. Будет противостояние богатых "киборгов" и бедных "натуралов". Может дойти до войны. Дорогие импланты обеспечат преимущества при поступлении в вуз и при приеме на работу. 06 Feb 2019
Железный Жук Правительствам увеличение интеллекта подданных может быть выгодно, так как поможет получить преимущество в гонке вооружений. 06 Feb 2019
