In the movie Gattaca they had a form of superhumans. They were disease resistant and immune to basically everything. But what was supposed to be good turned out to be something bad. A cyber horror, if you will. People got judged by their blood for a job interview. The things we think of as controversial now, like gene therapy, could be our future. They were looking at the genes through the blood to see how smart a person is, how prone to depression a person is, how strong a person is, etc. That's crazy to me, because that could only work during the transition period from being normal humans to better ones, but once everyone is turned, there'll be too many job applicants. How will they look for work then? I had the idea of a job center where you could go and tell them what kind of work you're looking for and then the computer matches you up with as many as it can find for you! That's not something done in present job centers surprisingly. Some ideas are the simplest but greatest ones. So where would the normal people hide in a world like that? All the unemployed would be the normal ones. That is too far out. People with more strength and dexterity could be a nightmare itself if you're giving that power to the wrong person. The bums would be the normal people with 4 year degrees. If that were me, I'd be an anarchist against my will. I'd have to be one. I'd have to hide somewhere with others like me in a shelter. What an odd, odd idea. I'm not so sure that's a good idea. But it is inevitable. We need to do something about our disease resistance for sure these days. I can see why it'll happen but where will it lead? So do you have to be born with this DNA from a mother or do you have the choice to become superhuman. If it were from birth then I really could imagine being an anarchist.
