in the future people will be able to grow their own replacement organs, take specially tailored drugs, and use genetic research tools to alert them from any possible hereditary health dangers. He adds that tomorrow's world will be a fusion of biology and technology, where robots do the chores, cars drive themselves and artificial limbs are better than real ones. But Mr Saffo says these improvements would only be affordable to the super-rich. And because of this, he says, advancements may lead to a divide between the classes and eventually could lead to the super-rich evolving into a different species entirely, leaving his not-so-rich counterpart behind.Rich 'may evolve into separate species' - Telegraph. Saffo is basing his claims off the much more utopian notions of Ray Kurzweil, who last month predicted that anyone alive in 2040 or 2050 could be immortal. Kurzweil says that with nanotechnologies as developed as they are, and if technological development continues at a similar pace, we'll be able to insert tiny robot type things into our bodies to repair any cell damage, eat up any cancers, and generally keep us alive for at least a thousand years. But Kurzweil is living in La La Land. Not because he thinks immortality is possible, but because he thinks these technologies will be widely available. Saffo's right to point out that the rich will have access; the rest of us will not. The super rich already limit healthcare (e.g. Obama's kids can get an H1N1 vaccine, but yours and mine have to wait and if you're homeless and therefore especially at risk of dying from the virus, well, actually, we'll just keep ignoring you). And because of that, the super rich accumulate even more wealth. Still, some questions remain unanswered: Will the rich actually become a separate species in the future? Will the rich still be human? Are they now?
