Human Augmentation, The Dawn Of A New Paradigm

“National regulations dictating the pace and scope of scientific research reflect societal views, particularly in democracies that are more sensitive to public opinion.”

“The future of human augmentation should not, however, be decided by ethicists or public opinion.”

The pace and scope of research in this field

Of human augmentation, may be dictated

By national regulation. The field may be slated

As Frankenstein-like, science fiction,

So it is best that much of it remains concealed,

There’s no need to cause unnecessary friction.

Let the people believe that governments act with good intention,

Interested only in longevity and death prevention,

But let the bio sciences have dominion,

The future can’t be shaped by ethics, or public opinion.
