Splitting the human race.


Splitting The Human Race. Your choice the Ruling Class. Or an Ugly Morlock?

THE human race will one day split into two separate species, an attractive, intelligent ruling elite and an underclass of dim-witted, ugly goblin-like creatures. It has already begun

100,000 years into the future, sexual selection could mean that two distinct breeds of human will have developed. The human race will have reached its physical peak by the year 3000. After they reach their peak around the year 3000 humans will begin to regress. These humans will be between 6ft and 7ft tall and they will live up to 120 years.

"Physical features will be driven by indicators of health, youth and fertility that men and women have evolved to look for in potential mates," suggesting that advances in cosmetic surgery and other body modifying techniques will effectively homogenise our appearance.

Men will have symmetrical facial features, deeper voices and bigger penises, That will make a few of you want to live longer.

Women will all have glossy hair, smooth hairless skin, large eyes and pert breasts.

Racial differences will be a thing of the past as interbreeding -( this is not the type of inter breeding among relatives in Tasmania known to produce offspring with twin heads)- produces a single coffee-coloured skin tone. Some people I know have achieved this already.

The future for our descendants isn't all long life, perfect bodies and chiselled features.

While humans will reach their peak in 1000 years' time, 10,000 years later our reliance on technology will have begun to dramatically change our appearance.

Medicine will weaken our immune system and we will begin to appear more child-like.

The future of man will be a story of the good, the bad and the ugly.
While science and technology have the potential to create an ideal habitat for humanity over the next millennium, there is the possibility of a monumental genetic hangover over the subsequent millennia due to an over-reliance on technology reducing our natural capacity to resist disease, or our evolved ability to get along with each other. After that, things could get ugly, with the possible emergence of genetic 'haves' and 'have-nots'. And the workforce a major race of ugly mishapen hunch backed Gnomes

This theory may strike a chord with readers who have read H G Wells' classic novel The Time Machine, in particular his descriptions of the Eloi and the Morlock races.

In the 1895 book, the human race has evolved into two distinct species, the highly intelligent and wealthy Eloi and the frightening, animalistic Morlock who are destined to work underground to keep the Eloi happy. I reckon Wally would make a great morlock.

Scarily true. And I am grateful that my imperfect self will be long gone.

I have a little Satnav

It sits there in my car

A Satnav is a driver’s friend

It tells you where you are



I have a little Satnav

I’ve had it all my life

It’s better than the normal ones

My Satnav is my wife



It gives me full instructions

Especially how to drive

“Its thirty miles an hour”, it says

“You’re doing thirty five”



It tells me when to stop and start

And when to use the brake

And tells me that it’s never ever

Safe to overtake



It tells me when a light is red

And when it goes to green

It seems to know instinctively

Just when to intervene



It lists the vehicles just in front

And all those to the rear

And taking this into account

It specifies my gear.



I’m sure no other driver

Has so helpful a device

For when we leave and lock the car

It still gives its advice



It fills me up with counselling

Each journey’s pretty fraught

So why don’t I exchange it

And get a quieter sort?



Ah well, you see, it cleans the house,

Makes sure I’m properly fed,

It washes all my shirts and things

And keeps me warm in bed!



Despite all these advantages

And my tendency to scoff,

I only wish that now and then

I could turn the damn thing off!

That future is too far away for me to be worried about. If it were happening now, I'd have to be a Morlock, since I am neither tall nor wealthy.

Vest said...

River: E and L for starters, would be clearly seen as the genetic code for the Eloi.
No, I shall not allow you to be a Morlock.
