Slide 1

The Future of Human Evolution Mary Pham Anthropology 01 Summer 2007

Slide 2

Introduction Upon contemplating advancement (particularly concentrate our predecessors and primate relatives) in our class, a question flew up in my brain… What will happen to the fate of the human species??? (i.e. Will regardless we survive? Fan out into various species? Ended up extinct???) Ladies and refined man, today I will offer to you a few theories proposed by developmental scholars on the eventual fate of our human species.

Slide 3

An Overview: Six Hypotheses later on, mankind may: Become two sub-species Become survivalists, making a wide range of animal groups that will have the capacity to adapt to doomsday Depend on hereditary alteration to enhance our knowledge and constitution Become less different, more homogenous all in all Assimilate hardware to ourselves and get to be cyborgs Become an outsider species suited to space travel

Slide 4

Hypothesis #1: Humans Split into Two Sub-Species Evolutionary scholar Oliver Curry expects a hereditary high society and a dumb underclass to develop. People will turn out to be more choosier about their sexual accomplices Upper-class: Slim, insightful, appealing Underclass: Ugly, stupid, troll like

Slide 5

Hypothesis #1: Other Changes Humans will advance in the vicinity of 6ft and 7ft tall Life-ranges will have reached out to 120 years Social aptitudes (e.g. communicating with others) could be lost. Buttons would subside, thus of chewing less on prepared sustenance. From this… to this?

Slide 6

Hypothesis #2: Playing advancement with hereditary adjustment We will be hereditarily altered to end up distinctly a more brilliant, more grounded species We as of now have been grappling with certifiable parts of future human improvement Stem-cell examine Implantation of biocompatible PC chips We are making ourselves practically eradication verification by bowing Earth's vegetation to our will. DNA and medications upgrade keenness and physique.

Slide 7

Hypothesis #3: Survivalistians Many diverse species will adapt to Doomsday Humans will no longer undermined by predators their own size Different populaces create in confinement over a large number of eras, separate species would rise. People will make due in various routes, both through hereditary qualities and pharmaceutical For instance, that infection safe strain of post-people may inevitably flourish in the wake of a worldwide bioterror emergency Less tough people would get themselves isolated on the planet's places of refuge. Defensive forehead and skin layer contribute to "radiation hardening."

Slide 8

Hypothesis #4: Unihumans Blending Together as One Cultural differences, is blurring as human culture turns out to be more interconnected internationally Already observed now by decrease of etymological assorted qualities People turn out to be a great deal more homogenous Races will "mix" Skin tones mix. Bigger eyes are related with more prominent "domestication."

Slide 9

Hypothesis #5: Cyborgs Man versus Machine… or Man + Machine? A few specialists stress that counterfeit consciousness may outpace Homo sapiens' characteristic smarts. Then again maybe we'll join with them. We could turn out to be part-robot ourselves We're as of now making absorbed apparatus Prosthetic appendages Mechanical hearts Artificial retinas. Why couldn't cerebrum enlargement be added to the rundown? Cyborg: Hardware improves people. In the long run the devices look more rich.

Slide 10

Hypothesis #6: Turning into an outsider race If people survive sufficiently long, individuals may need to spread out to new planets. SETI Institute has proposed a few approaches to get to space and survive Build a major ark: Build a spaceship sufficiently enormous to convey a whole progress to the goal star framework. Go to twist speed: Somehow we find a wormhole or figure out how to go at relativistic paces. Enter the Astrans: Humans are hereditarily designed to endure ultra long haul hibernation on board mechanical boats. Body hair just acts as a burden amid interstellar excursions.

Slide 11

In Conclusion… There are such a large number of various conceivable outcomes for the eventual fate of our human race. In spite of the fact that there are distinctive theories that have been invoked by specialists in driving fields of social and natural sciences, it can be sensibly assumed that the movement mankind won't stop. We will positively keep on evolving actually in little ways, yet our innovation—in hereditary qualities, in manmade brainpower, in aeronautical go, in pharmaceutical—may apply the best impact on how we will develop. I have displayed to you six of the numerous speculations out there as to the eventual fate of human development. Part into two sub-species Becoming survivialists Genetically altering our knowledge and body Becoming less assorted, more homogenous Assimilating apparatus to ourselves Becoming an outsider species suited to space travel I trust my introduction illuminated you to various thoughts regarding the fate of our advancement.
