How will science shape what it means to be human What makes us human? It's a question that has intrigued us for thousands of years.
As scientific advances push the boundaries of life and death, they challenge our understanding of ourselves. But as we learn more about who and what we are, does this actually change what it means to be human? What new technologies are on the horizon and how will they affect us? As we make these rapid scientific discoveries, are we opening Pandora's Box? Leading ethicists, scientists and thinkers meet in Canberra to debate these issues in front of an informed audience. After the forum, the panellists responded to challenging questions from the Canberra audience in a lively Q session. Intelligent, articulate and thought provoking television. He holds pandora internet radio australia the title of Regents' Professor at Arizona State University, where is Director of the Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science, co Director of the Cosmology Initiative, and Principle Investigator of the Center for Convergence of Physical Science and Cancer Biology. Previously he held academic appointments in the UK and Australia, most recently in the Australian Centre for Astrobiology. Peter Singer was born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1946, and educated at the University of Melbourne and the University of Oxford. He has taught at the University of Oxford, La Trobe University and Monash University, and has held several other visiting appointments. Since 1999 he has been Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics in the University Center for Human Values at Princeton University. From 2005 on, he has also held the part time position of Laureate Professor at the University of Melbourne, in the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics.24 May 2012 12:25:29pm I really look forward to this debate to see if the panelists can elucidate the dilemma between individual and corporate control of our lives as pandora bead ring worl population explodes. I vaccilate between gloom, as I see one world government led by giant corporations enforcing the creeping enslavement of us all and hope that our indomitable human spirit will awaken us to the reality of needing to work together to solve problems with mindfullness and fairness whilst perhaps fighting to retain democratic rights, free will and individual personality. 24 May 2012 6:25:24pm If humanness changes with beads for sale australia technology, it will either mean we are elevating people to a new pseudo evolutionary stage (with mechanical parts etc), and/or it will be the end of humanity and cause our decline. We cherish the feelings and ideas of being human, unadulterated, the way nature caused us to develop over so long. However all this still sidesteps the problem that there is overpopulation on the planet. In fact if we enhance humans, we're actually making the problem worse by giving people a chance to abuse the earth harder than ever (with less people dying). 24 May 2012 11:14:04pm Enjoyed the program but thought the discussion was pretty naive; with the exception of the brief foray into declining efficiency of energy extraction and the Club of Rome. The mind set is still very much in the baby boomer idea that humanity has this endless future of growth and increasing living standards. The most likely reality is that we are close to peak civilisation towards the end of the oil age. And what it is to be a human is a spiritual question; yes we are genetic machines but we are also more than that. There is another layer to reality which is only accessible and recognisable through life experience. What it is to be human is to be an individual and to find the nature of the purpose of your life through that experience. It is different for every different person. It is this capacity for spiritual insight which marks us out from other life forms. 24 May 2012 11:16:29pm Congratulations to the panel and the ABC and ANU for facilitating a very interesting conversation on science. I appreciate the technology that allowed me to receive this input. However, information is not knowledge, knowledge is not understanding and understanding is not wisdom; all of these things are part of what makes us human. When we use information to build a personal knowledge base we can apply this knowledge to other areas which may have similarities. In turn, analyzing these similarities can provide us with the understanding we need to solve problems. Wisdom is taking the appropriate action to solve the problems. Science is the systematic application of a method to allow us to satisfy our curiosity about the why and how of things and events in the world around us. It is available to everyone. Therefore, as science is part of every human's existence, a good start to raising the profile of what it can or can't do would be for every politician to employ a political staffer with some background in scientific studies in his or her office. This would enable at least some media releases to be more substance than spin. A win win situation. The only problem with science and technology is the fact that it all relies upon politicians to supply grants for research. They will only provide money for work that complies with policy. Usually their policy is wacky and will not work. One example is the many millions of dollars spent on trying to find a plant based solution to dry land salinity.
This is pandora beads and charms an impossible dream. While this plant based idea is being pursued, practical and proven methods are ignored and time is wasted along with the loss of more land every day.
