The idea of flight had always fascinated mankind. Ever since he saw birds flying, he wanted to fly so if it is possible then why don’t they make this dream come true? A couple of strong wings is all that a human needs. A wing is a surface used to produce lift for flight through the atmosphere. The lift force occurs because the air has a lower pressure just above the wing and higher pressure below. The most obvious adaptation to flight is the wing, but because flight is so energetically demanding birds have evolved several other adaptations to improve efficiency when flying. Birds’ bodies are streamlined to help overcome air-resistance. The large amounts of energy required for flight have led to the evolution of a unidirectional pulmonary system to provide the large quantities of oxygen required for their high respiratory rates. Seems like a huge modification but as i said previously genetic engineering is playing with evolution at a very higher rate. When dinosaurs could transit from massive ugly beings to flying birds, it is possible with humans too.
4. Super Senses: Night Vision, Hearing, Smell
Testing indicates that an animal vision is superior at night in comparison to humans. Mostly felines and many other animals, have a tapetum lucidum , which is a reflective layer behind the retina that reflects light that passes through the retina back into the eye. While this enhances the ability to see in low light, it appears to reduce net visual acuity, thus detracting when light is abundant. In very bright light, the slit-like iris closes very narrowly over the eye, reducing the amount of light on the sensitive retina, and improving depth of field. Big cats have pupils that contract to a round point. The tapetum and other mechanisms give the cat a minimum light detection threshold up to seven times lower than that of humans. Recent studies have indicated that they may also see better in the near infra-red spectrum. That one sequence of genes isolation is what that can take you to the bright world of darkness. Don’t worry the gene insertion won’t change the pupil shape but yes your sclera might shine at night.
Animals also have a broader range of frequency of sounds they can hear attributed to the morphological design of their ear cells. Same applies for smell, most animals would have and ability to sense smell 15-20 times more than that of humans attributed to larger olfactory membrane in their noses. All such features are a tip from a genome project and can easily be manipulated in humans to get these super-senses.
3. Telepathy & Telekinesis
Telepathy is the ostensible transfer of information on thoughts or feelings between individuals by means other than the five senses. A person who is able to make use of telepathy is said to be able to read the thoughts and stored information in the brain of others. One of the magical mysteries associated with multiples is that they share a special connection beyond that of ordinary siblings. While the twin bond is a special aspect of their unique relationship, sometimes it is endowed with extraordinary supernatural qualities. Telepathy has been established experimentally in humans but not all. In experiments the twins, children, were separated into different spaces. One was wired to a ‘lie detector’ machine (the receiver end of telepathy link), while the other was used as the source of the link. The ‘ receiver ‘ or the lie-detector machine operator weren’t aware of what will be the stimulus for the ‘ transmitter ‘. The transmitting children were taken to another room where they were subjected to strong feelings. In one case, a child submerged his hand into ice-cold water. On another time he was being frightened by a sudden rubber snake coming at him. At both of these moments, spikes were recorded in the ‘receiving’ twin brother. A similar experiment was performed with another pair of twins at another time. If such a gene is localized, then telepathy will be the inevitable future of humanity. That superhuman won’t need internet, mobile phones and other services to send and access information but data would be free to his evolutionary nervous system.
On the other hand, there is telekinesis , ability to manipulate and control objects with the mind, often in ways not visible to the naked eye. So far we don’t see much examples but psychoanalysists believe this is demonstrable and oh good for us, if it is, we’ll add this to another trait we’d like to have in our supermutant.
2. Extremophilia: Super Resistance
An extremophile is an organism that thrives in and may even require physically or geochemically extreme conditions that are detrimental to the majority of life on Earth. In the 1980s and 1990s, biologists found that microbial life has an amazing flexibility for surviving in extreme environments – niches that are extraordinarily hot, or acidic, for example – that would be completely inhospitable to complex organisms. Some scientists even concluded that life may have begun on Earth in hydrothermal vents far under the ocean’s surface. Extremophiles are also thought to be the last organisms that will remain on Earth when the oceans will have vaporized. A massive genetic modification would be necessary to get the results of all ranges of extremophile types, but once it happens your superhuman would be able tolerate extremes of temperature from -200C to 200C, extremes of acidity and alkalinity of environment. He might not even depend on oxygen or need it rarely and may live in dry, desiccating conditions or even high hydrostatic pressure. They may also include water breathing i.e ability to respirate through water in lieu of a gaseous medium. Once human is exposed to some harsh environment, normally resistant develops quickly but still slower for a superhuman. Resistance is usually related to alteration in binding receptors and gene production and decreased penetration of harmful agents over time or their increased efflux. By using the resistance developing mechanism, we can now induce super-resistance to humans and then humans will become extremophiles.
And of-course the most supreme thing the humans owe and other livings do not is the brains and only few of them are called genius. A genius is an excellent intellect and this is the power unmatched by any other physical power. Analysing of reaction time and sensory acuity as measures of “neurophysiological efficiency” and the analysing of sensory acuity as a measure of intelligence was done long ago. By intelligence, they meant a heritable trait, which was a general intelligence factor. Geniuses often have crisp, clear-eyed visions of given situations, in which interpretation is unnecessary, and they build or act on the basis of those facts, usually with tremendous energy. With gene tecniques, we give our geniuses with 5 genius phenomenon.
Supersapience is the presence of a brilliant strategic mind. It is a very powerful ability; not strong as physical power, but one with this ability is very cunning and crafty. When the user is confronted with a problem, their brain automatically reverts back to what they know to be common sense, allowing them to systematically work toward nearly any solution. Likewise, Super-Intellect is the ability for the mind to learn and retain knowledge on a better level than that of a normal human. This is accomplished by the psychic ability to decipher knowledge that lies within a subject by studying it, allowing one superhuman learning speed and comprehension, accompanied by superhuman leaps of logic and better-than-normal memory. Instant Learning/Understanding or Clarity is the ability to read, see or hear complex concepts and then psychically process them into easier concepts to understand (instead of having to study for prolonged amounts of time to obtain vast quantities of knowledge). One with this ability can almost-instantaneously understand concepts (in their native tongue) that they come into contact with. And if they come into contact with any piece of “information” that is wrong, they can intuitively put two-and-two together to keep themselves from accepting incorrect information or half-truths. Ambidexteri ty or Kinetic Mind is the ability to psychically juggle numerous mental or physical tasks at a time. The user of this ability can start as many tasks as they desire, and their mind will keep them all separate (and remember them all); so that way, one could start numerous tasks without forgetting anything or taking too much time doing a task. Superawareness is the peak of consciousness and awareness. The user can sense their environment (the presence, position and motion of others, etc.), and could tell when the slightest changes occur (a footstep, an increase in heartbeat, atmospheric changes, temperature changes, etc). They also wake up from being unconscious without being groggy, could not get vertigo or be easily disoriented, and often aren’t even subject to psychic mental distortion. It is possible their mind could be dominated, but they would know it was happening.
Accomplished geniuses in intellectual fields start out in many cases as child prodigies, gifted with superior memory or understanding. Modification of certain genes and receptors and pathways in our nervous system can lead us to think in a specific manner. A round of engineering programs on human brain would be required and ultimately there will be the far superior race of geniuses and we the ancestors would be nothing but idiots.
