The biggest tech revolution of the 21st Century isn't digital, it's biological. A breakthrough called CRISPR has given us unprecedented control over the basic building blocks of life. It opens the door to curing diseases, reshaping the biosphere, and designing our own children. Human Nature is a provocative exploration of CRISPR's far-reaching implications, through the eyes of the scientists who discovered it, the families its affecting, and the bio-engineers who are testing its limits. How will this new power change our relationship with nature? What will it mean for human evolution? To begin to answer these questions we must look back billions of years and peer into an uncertain future.
Human race is at the point that dramatically could change the life of himself and all other creatures around, But the greed inside him doesn't let him do it in the right way. People in power would use it to create restless slaves who could work 24/7 and fearless soldiers who could fight 24/7. Technology is great but we are not mature enough to use it in the right way. Look at the internet and social media and the way how people waste this technology on some pointless activities. Still long way to go.
