Will we able to genetically modify humans to look prettier, healthier, more intelligent,selfless, and change what it is to be human? What I do see is a lot of fairie art work that look human but have pointy ears like in startrek, will we be able to make humans with pointy ears as I think it looks attractive!

We will definitely be able to. Technically we already /do/ have modified humans, if you count the people given gene therapy for diseases modified. The little girl cured of the 'bubble boy' disease, the Berlin Patient cured of HIV from a bone marrow transplant, so on. We'll definitely be modifying ourselves. Pointy ears? That seems very simple to do, but what do I know? I'm no geneticist. Personally, I'm going for extended life above all else :-)

Perhaps you could save the idea for the upcoming porn version of the immersive virtual reality experience. :)


What are you without the sum of your parts?

I doubt you'll find a geneticist willing to give your children pointy ears. However, cosmetic surgery could probably give you pointy ears now, if you don't mind people pointing and staring.

If something I say sounds like trolling/being stupid/offensive, please forgive me. I'm bad with people.
