Chinese researchers may have been asking themselves the samequestion when they tried to alter the DNA of nonviable human embryos. Their experiment failed and most of the embryos showed unexpected mutations. As of right now there is a moratorium for human research, but there still is unknown of the future. Individuals might change their DNA, in spite of the risk it might cause. Roger Mello has envisioned the results of a world who could alter their genes to be whatever they want.
If I had the chance to alter myself, I wouldn’t. Even though there are some things I don’t like I would never change them. I feel like you’re getting in the way of fate. If everyone could create themselves, don’t you think we would all look the same? I don’t know about you but I like being different.
