As humanity unveils all the secrets of our DNA and learns to use nanotechnology for genetic engineering in humans, the potential is limitless. We will be able to improve our muscles, our brains and participate in life extension technologies. Some of these things may sound like science fiction, but that’s exactly where nanotechnology in biotechnology is headed. Many futurists and scientists in these fields portray an interesting, exciting and even frightening future.
One of the best books I have ever read on this subject, and one that ranks among the best sci-fi writers of times past, has allowed my mind to go beyond today and in the future. The future of nanotechnology and all emerging sciences, now interdependent, will fascinate you. If you are interested in this topic, I would like to recommend a very good book, which you will enjoy and like. It’s definitely a classic, albeit in a very esoteric niche. The name of the book is;
“Drivers of Creation – What We Could Become”, by Eric Drexler; Division of Bantam Books Doubleday Dell, New York, NY, 1986, (298 pp.), ISBN: 0385199724.
This book is in my personal library and will stay there. Recently, I got rid of some of the old books that I didn’t want anymore, and I came across this book again. As I leafed through it, I realized that it was written in 1986, it occurred to me that many of the things Drexler predicted have now become. Many of the funded nanotechnology initiatives and ongoing research are making breakthroughs in neurology, biotechnology, pharmacy, medicine, materials science and more.
Sometimes it’s worth looking back at the visionaries who helped us get on the path to our modern technology today. I’m going to recommend that you buy this book, read it, and then explore where this technology goes in the future, and how far it has already come. Please consider all of this.
