Humans should have the spine of a hero shrew, If that was the case then spinal injures would be nearly non-existent.

Better food sources. Like...maybe a crop that grows quickly regardless of climate, is edible with minimal preparation, and is nutritious. Maybe have it also efficiently absorb CO2.

I don't like the idea of genetically engineering humans in general unless you are targeting things like genetic diseases and make it available to the general population.

I'll buck the catgirl trend and say longer-lived pets. I'd be quite happy not to lose another dog or cat till I'm old enough to kick the bucket myself.


i agree make it so our pets have similar life spans to a human


Sorry for the triple posts people but I just saw this answer and I've had a lot of pets over the years not to mention I just lost my old black lab to cancer so this one has been on my mind a lot lately. I've come to the conclusion that pets don't live as long as we do for the simple fact that if they did have longer life spans then there would be a lot of pets out there without their owners. Think about it. How many cats and dogs have had their owners die and then have no one to take care of them and love them. If they're lucky a relative or neighbor will take them in but it's never quite the same for them. If they're not lucky it's off to a shelter and if they're unlucky then we all know the outcome of that one. So I think the reason they don't live as long as we do is because many of them would just outlive us and would then be without their loved one's and possibly have no one to take care of them. A lot of them already do outlive us. They're lives are like a shooting star, brief, beautiful and intensely bright. They're are so bright that they light up our lives as well as our hearts. They're not here for as long as we are so we have to love and appreciate them every moment that they are here.



that also makes sense late last year my dog had to be put down due to developing seizures despite only beign 4 years old that was pretty hard to have happen. i will definitely say remove the genes behind such illnesses

To be fair wide scale genetic change won't be possible with a adult or even likely childhood population. To reap the full benefits of genetic engineering on the human race the stuff would have to be done In utero. And would likely create a sub section of physically superior and more mentally adapt humans.

Of course genetic engineering on that level and to humans is currently banned by international treaty.

Interestingly, it is possible that, within the near future, genetic engineering could be used to change the genome of adult human's. The process involves engineering viruses to carry the desired segment of dna directly into the patients cells. They are already testing limited uses of this method for medicinal treatments. Not saying it would be wise to do it, but theoretically, it is possible.
