In the end, everything will follow the laws set by the universe millennia ago. Why not bypass every pitfall we could come across, and just jump to the universe’s solution to a problem?

Well, given the current state of technological advancements, we’ve finally realized grasping in the dark for possible answers might not be the most efficient way to go about solving today’s problems — I mean after all, the test answers are right there in nature, just waiting to be found and utilized.

So what is Biomimicry?

In short, biomimicry is the form of design where inspiration is…

Well you see, I’m quite proud of this (in my opinion hilarious) essay I wrote as an assignment, and think with all the other solemn events currently happening, it might be fun to add a bit of sarcasm into the world. …

Imagine this: a world where genetic diseases don’t exist, no one dies of old age, the rich buy “designer babies”, and entire countries populated by Albert Einsteins, Usain Bolts, and Nikola Teslas. Sounds like fiction, but it might soon be our reality all thanks to Gene Editing technology (which also goes by genetic engineering, genetic manipulation and many other names).

What is “Genetics?”
