When he repeats several times that 'there will be no synthetic babies' you know for sure that there will be synthetic babies.

Synthetic biology, as cheerful as it sounds, will be weaponized I guarantee. Slippery damn path.

i wish i can talk to someone at a party about this, instead of superficial stuff people talk about

Author — Blu


This all sounds wonderful in part but one has to factor in the fact that the planet is being run by criminals.

Hmm? How about undoing the radiation poisoning from the “hundreds” of above ground atomic explosions the mutations can be rectified? Now that would be useful to Humanities future.

This talk could be at the begining of a sci fi horror film.

Engineerd my daughter in a New York laboratory, born in California. "Bi-costal"... Begging your pardon?

The technical on this is pretty amazing... A lot of promising new technology... Too bad our health care industry is about making money... Not healing...

I picture Stephen king hiding under his blanket after watching this.

Our "Leaders" will (have) weaponize biotech long before it's a benifit to the common person. As history has flawlessly demonstrated.

"This tool just popped out of nowhere" (WTF?) Who or what is pushing this agenda? AI? the devil is in the details...

I believe younger people are more likely to get sequenced because they havent been around long enough to gain the mistrust that we seem to develope as we age. Too many horrible people

I remember in the 80s when they discovered our gene code. They said it could cure all those bad things like cancer, Parkinson’s etc. They haven’t cured shit. Instead they create viruses, and AI.

Author — George Guthrie


the more i listen to this guy, the more afraid I get. genome design in your living room. A suicidal high schooler can kill so many people. This guy creeps me out.

Now I know how the elites seem to live longer than the great unwashed.

You are not learning to create, just getting good at manipulating what’s already been made.

Thank you for being honest.

Author — Hopi Ng


This man is a salesman for the dark future ahead. His job is to condition the public to what’s coming. He’s also recruiting our brightest minds to essentially screw our species over. You would have to be an IE for to believe that they’re going to use these technologies to better our lives. The elite that are in control of these companies and finding these things not only don’t care about us but it is actually their wish to see the majority of us die off from this planet. They’re going to be sequencing as many peoples DNA as possible. And they already have ways of understanding things that we could never imagine. Which means They’ll be coming to get people for secret reasons for secret uses. And they’ll have the ability to manipulate the genetics and health conditions of entire populations and extremely clandestine ways. Simply spraying something on a shipment of food could alter the genetics of an entire city. Causing people to come down with an illness that they will conveniently sell back to us and make billions of dollars. This is the future we are walking towards and humanitys complacency has caused this. Did anyone notice how he openly admitted to having a bio engineer daughter.This man has sold out to the system and in return they are giving him small crumbs of access to the unbelievable technologies that they now have at their disposal. Unfortunately for him and the other humans that are playing a part in this game. they don’t understand the fact that technology itself has in fact become an organism. And that organism is quickly on its way to replacing humans as a dominant species on this planet
