Singularity

The Singularity Is Near : When Humans Transcend Biology:
A book by futurist and information technologist Ray Kurzweil. He writes of the “theoretical limitlessness of exponential expansion that will see the merging of our biology with the staggering achievements of ‘GNR’ (genetics, nanotechnology and robotics) to create a species of unrecognizably high intelligence, durability, comprehension, memory and so on.”

In other words, advanced technologies of genetic engineering and in vitrio fertilization will enable the creation of a new human species within the next 30 to 50 years, the lifetimes of our children. This is not a crackpot theory.

I’d like to take a read at this, but there are other books already in line.
