alxian Posted July 23, 2005 Report Share Posted July 23, 2005 two things struck me this week after having completed spin state by chris moriarty and reading some topics here. most sci-fi and hollywood movies have it that cloning will create a legion of perfect clones that will make the rest of us aesthetically obsolete. this will force a division of species for the human race. i think it will be more like hollywood and its super elite. they typically are not universally aesthetically pleasing, some stars in hoolywood are positivelly hideos, however those features that we covet generally are their claim to fame. perfect white and aligned teeth, perfect complextion, near flowmetal like hair, facial or body quirks that make their faces unmistakable, recognizable in any crowd or laser beam shooting eyes. i think if anything at first genetic engineering (the new tool evolution) will allow more people to become totally unique, meaning they have near perfect recognition by the masses versus any other star. thinks about it, what do some stars do most? change their appearance to look like other hot models at the time. either by changing a hair style, getting trimmer, lip breast augmentations. stars do it all the time, and when it comes to the masses the easiest body mod is hair. what happens when those body mods become so easy that reconstructing your facial bones and muscles is a matter of taking a few days off to visit a body modding clinic. the costs will also go down and recouperation time will become a fraction of the weeks it generally lasts now. you could see something like jennifer aniston getting a tan and a new hair do. the "rachel" look then requires millions of women to redo themselves. it would be weird to see legions or near perfect clones of jennifer aniston running around i'm sure but since the "rachel" look is so popular now amoung other hairdos and body styles i think it's going to happen, sooner rather than beyond our lifetimes.
