    What would spiritually awakened genetic engineers decide to synthesize? Or: What Would Buddha Splice?

    [See the full post at: What Would Buddha Splice?]


    Our early biological designs will be like new kids on the block on a high security prison run by the inmates. They will be beaten, abused and cannibalized if we release them on the wild. Except perhaps for copy and pastes of influenza viruses or the like, not too much to worry about on the short term. However many months that translate into, of course, should be used to prepare for later, when the tech matures.

    A biocurious toolkit, focusing on teaching safety procedures, enabling one to plug into a computer and hack a few toy e.coli’s would begin, I hope, the equivalent of the PC revolution. Then create demand in biz/industry (Silly.Coli Valley doesn’t sound very nice though, lol) for such programmers and develop that “fast response” Kurzweil said he was working with the gov/military for.. sounds to me the fastest way forward.
