In the late 22nd century, it’s the d-humans who rule the world. They’re the ones deciding whether we Primals should be allowed to continue to exist or not.

How did the world get there from here? Is it realistic to think that in less than two centuries we could have evolved ourselves into a different species?

What is a D-human?

Actually, there are 3 different kinds of d-humans: d1, d2 and d3. Harry Shields and Naomi Aramovich are d-3 and they look like pretty darn perfect specimens of human beings.

Click here to see how the gap between the wealthiest and the poorest in our global society is already beginning to split us into two different species.

Nature 2.0

During the PEPS hearing, Harry takes Eusebio and Naomi to a late 22nd century wildlife reserve, where the d-humans recreated the awesome creatures we Primals drove to extinction in the 21st century.

Here are some highlights on the state of current technology and ethical thinking on human genetic engineering:

Genetic engineering’s already here… and it’s already being used on humans
