Freeman Dyson on New Species of Humans

from the my-new-wings-don't-work-in-Earth-gravity-anyway dept.
Ralph Brave reports in Salon: Princeton's Dyson has his own ideas on what is to be done. In his view, the speciation of humans into different groups is inevitable — and it would be a disaster to allow such diversification without restraint. "We must travel the high road into space, to find new worlds to match our new (genetic) capabilities," Dyson writes in The Sun, the Genome and the Internet, published last year. "To give us room to explore the varieties of mind and body which our genome can evolve, one planet is not enough." CP: What is the "restraint" here — getting to colonize space? Oh, OK…since they insist.
