(ORDO NEWS) — Hawking predicted the extinction of mankind and the emergence of a new race of people. The warnings to mankind are contained in a book that did not have time to come out during the lifetime of the British physicist.
English physicist Stephen Hawking, who died in March 2018, before his death predicted another threat to humanity – the emergence of a new race of superhumans with superpowers.
Such a warning is contained in the last book of the scientist, “Short Answers to Big Questions”, which did not have time to come out during his lifetime.
Hawking predicted that in the future, wealthy people will be able to make changes to their DNA and the DNA of their children, achieving greater resistance to disease, improved memory and intelligence, influencing life expectancy.
According to the scientist, legislative bans on the use of genetic engineering in humans will not be able to deter the temptation to improve their characteristics.
As a result, people with superpowers will appear on Earth, with which an ordinary person will not be able to compete. As a result, clashes between people and superhumans will begin.
“Once such superhumans emerge, there will be significant political problems with unenhanced humans who will not be able to compete,” writes Hawking. “Probably ordinary people will die out or become of little importance.”
