Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    Oh my God! It’s Skynet. It’s the freaking robot apocalypse! We’re all going to be turned into batteries!

    The next two stages have already been defined for some time:

    AUTONOMICS EVONOMICS

    Sense………………………..Sense

    Think…………………………Think

    Act…………………………….Act

    Adapt…………………………Adapt

    …………………………………Tenacity (thought out acts learned through sensing adaptation)

    Evonomics is the mechanical output derivative equivalent of genomics in non-mechanical beings.

    CRISPR will dominate genetics and disease research. It enables researchers to easily and accurately modify DNA by selectively removing a single nucleotide or segment or to correct genes . It has been used by Chinese researchers to successfully modify Rhesus monkey embryos before implantation. It could eliminate the aids virus as an example.
