If you could choose two specific gene attributes to have that stood out, what would they be? they can be anything that would be considered of this world; so no wings, no invisibility gene etc
what a choice for yourself?

Got it wrong...again!...note to self do try to read question carefully!
I thought we were talking about changing the population at large. Blush

I'll delete the post.
...and in which case i think the most useful thing would be to have a better brain....or at least one that worked a bit more efficiantly.
yes,like being able to use the whole 100%,could be nice
I forget, how much of our brain do we actually use?
not a lot and then probably the bad part
I wouldn't mind using 100% of my brain.
Wait, don't we use our whole brain at all times? It's just that only like, less than 10% is devoted to conscious thought. The rest is in charge of enabling us to move and to perceive the world around us.

Yes and no..... There is a lot of storage in there and left over stuff from development. Lots of it is for uncontrolled reaction ie release of hormones and so on. we don't want to be in charge of this.

For me I would have greater healing and the ability to access memory as I need it, like a file search
Dude, I don't think the brain works the ways you think it does. I'm pretty sure that if we could use more of our brain for conscious thought, we would. And if not us, something else would. But not everything is actually worth using, and I think our body knows itself best.

What I'd like to have is a stronger immune system and a larger pe eyes that aren't blue (I can't drive without sunglasses).
The ability to be empathic to others without fear.
