As with most people, I really don't enjoy thinking about death. Not my death, not your death, and certainly not the death of humanity—just no death for me, please!
When it came to this video however, there was really no avoiding it. I'm not going to be alive in 1,000 years and neither are you! That's that! We'll just have to deal.
It's pretty unfortunate though because things are looking mighty fine for the human race if we don't blow ourselves up first (which we most likely will).
According to TechInsider there are going to be a few, notable, and pretty ground-breaking evolutionary changes—
There will eventually be a day where prosthetics are no longer just for the disabled.
Our genes will also evolve on microscopic levels to aid our survival. For example, an Oxford-led study discovered a group of HIV-infected children in South Africa living healthy lives. It turns out, they have a built-in defense against HIV that prevents the virus from advancing to AIDS.
We may eventually control our genes and DNA to the point where we make ourselves immune to disease and even reverse the effects of aging.
Another way to jump-start the human evolution on a different path is to move some of us to Mars. Mars receives 66% less sunlight than Earth. Which could mean humans on Mars will evolve larger pupils that can absorb more light in order to see.
The path to immortality will likely require humans to download their consciousness into a machine. Right now, scientists in Italy and China are performing head transplants on animals to determine if you can transfer consciousness from one body to another. They claim their next big step is to transplant human heads.
