INTELLIGENT DESIGN

Genetic Engineering R&D
for the Advancement of
Seasteading


Genetic engineering does
not require
seasteading
,
but genetic engineering
will be essential to
seasteaders
.

Too Fast?

Genes
-

Nucleic Acid

Nucleic acids are biological
molecules essential for life,
and include DNA and RNA.
Together with proteins,
they function in encoding,
transmitting and expressing
genetic information.


Genetic Engineering

Scientific alteration of the
structure of genetic
material in a living
organism, employed for
such purposes as creating
bacteria that synthesize
insulin.


HUMAN GENOME
PROJECT

Completed in 2003, two years ahead of schedule and
a half billion dollars under budget.

DEMONSTRATING THE FEASIBILITY OF G.E. R&D

NINE YEARS LATER

WHERE ARE THE SOLUTIONS TO GENETIC DEFECTS?

Fears

Blight

New allergens

Clone armies

Eugenics

Zombies

Decimation of farms

Loss of humanity

God will get jealous



Ignorance

The naturally chaotic alteration of genes pose
virtually all the same risks that intelligent design
does.

Humans have been using genetic engineering for
thousands of years through breeding, hybridization
and environment manipulation.




Status Quo

Civilization on land arose from agrarian cultures and
is reluctant to adapt to the reality of the future. Many
farmers and ranchers ironically fight and yet are
dependent upon GE.

Religious movements sway heavy influence on land
and many believe that genetic research is either a lie
or a sin or some other abomination to be
condemned. Their political clout will postpone GE
adaptation on land by 10
-
20 years or more.

The medical industry favors treatments over cures,
increased vitality via GE threatens drug dependency.


Opportunity hides behind
danger

The Profitability

Genetic Engineering has diverse applications, it will
be the backbone of many future concepts and will be
a relevant field as long as life exists.

“Gene Therapy the Future of Medicine.” claims many
medical journals and blogs.

The application of “
pharming
” alone is producing far
greater supplies at lower costs than traditional
methods of development.


Forbes magazine names “cognitive enhancement the
next trillion dollar business.”






Headlines

related diseases

Living Technology


The Future of Architecture

Researchers identify protein necessary for behavioral
flexibility

Gene Therapy is the future of Medicine

Cognitive enhancement will be a trillion dollar business


NOW AND THEN

EARLY R&D

ESTABLISH METHODS OF
SIMULATION FOR GENETIC
MODIFICATIONS

SOLVE PROBLEMS THAT
HAVE MARKETABLE
POTENTIAL ON LAND.

DECREASE OR ELIMINATE
THE NEED FOR IMPORTED
PRODUCTS ON SEASTEADS.

FUTURE R&D

CLONING AND
HYBRIDIZATION OF SPECIES

CUSTOMIZATION AND
CREATION OF NEW SPECIES

IMMEDIATE
APPLICATIONS

MEDICINE

DRUG MANUFACTURING OR
“PHARMING”

BETTER IMMUNE RESPONSE

LIFE EXTENSION

COGNITIVE ENHANCEMENT

VITRO MEATS

CROP RESISTANCE TO

IMPROVEMENTS IN TASTE
AND NUTRITIONAL VALUES

QUICKER AND LARGER
YEILDS

Living Technology

Protocells

in development to save the foundations of
Venice are scheduled to be presented at the Times
Cheltenham Science Festival this year.

Living buildings would have auto
-
regenerative
abilities.

Nature strives to achieve homeostasis, we should
construct with the same goal.





Intelligent Design


Wetglands

are genetically engineered organs that
perform specific functions such as:

Recycle waste (example: Plastic eating fungi)

Filter air and water (desalinize and oxidize)

Generate energy/food (solar flowers that glow at
night, moss that gives off heat)

Production of raw material (a spider’s web is
stronger than steel, a GE spider’s gland could grow
tomorrow’s steel.)


Macro
-
Organisms

Convergence of intelligent design and living
technology allows us the ability to “
biofacture
.”

Early
seasteads

will be vessels or platforms. Future
seasteads

will be living cities that are regenerative,
and reproductive (facilitated asexually, lets not get
carried away.)

Arcology

(
Architecture+Ecology
) is the only
sustainable building technology. Eventually, even on
land, structures will be grown from organic material.
