Russian scientist predicts appearance of a new human being to live 200 years
Valeria Praid, a member of the Russian Transhumanistic Movement and expert of the Russian Academy of Sciences' center for civilization studies, believes the time is at hand when a ‘post-human' will appear on the earth, endowed with abilities supernatural by today's standards.
‘The one called human being today will be ‘retarded human being' in 20 or 30 years' time. The genetic engineering, nanotechnology, neuro-pharmaceutics, artificial limbs and direct ‘brain-machine' interfaces will develop so much as to allow the creation of a post-human. His abilities will exceed ours' tenfold', she said in an interview published by the Profil magazine on Monday.
