Nanites and Self Evolution

By: Daniel Nase

Imagine having the ability to rewrite your own DNA by thinking or change the chemical structure and shape of your body at will...

Nanotechnology is still very new and not very useful, yet it's applications in medicine and engineering are nearly boundless. They can target and destroy a cancer or viruses without surgery, radiation or harmful medicines. They can also build new nanites and other useful structures on the same scale. Potential applications might be making the next generation of computer chips or maintaining youth.

Nanites ould require a very sophisticated program similar to A.I. in order to coordinate millions of them. This type of program is based on Boolean logic and any complete human language written into the program. The basic concept is that humans use language to reason and a computer with a complete understanding of human reasoning can think and learn like any human.

Nanites serve two purposes: self replication and a useful function. Each nanite can contain a small processor and memory and coordinate actions and processing with the other nanites.

Students at Stanford found a way to link neurons from the brain with a computer. Imagine how fast you could solve math problems if you could access a super computer just by thinking about it. You could also store any of your memories with all your senses and recall them is perfect detail at any time. This is the same neural bridge that could be used to direct nanites inside or ouside your body. It could also be used to communicate significantly faster with other humans.

You could also change or enhance any part of your body at will. This includes things like removing all toxins, bacteria, viruses and scar tissue. You could even enhance or repair your eye sight or hearing. Disabilities and damage could be repaired at will, and you could change the structure or materials in your body to adapt to unique environments like space or deep in the ocean.

I know this one is a bit scifi, but the technology will get there eventually.
