Their extraordinary means may soon lead to developing new creatures whose life began in a Petri dish. From there they would grow up. The bodies of those new creatures could certainly appear so normal that we may call them ‘humanoids’. Yet we who are born from humans may wonder about any stranger “was this creature born like me or was it grown in a lab?”. Within this talk we will discuss the marvels of modern genetics. Its many aspects have improved our lives. We will also discuss those human aspects that we people have developed and cherished. So in coming to this session you can express your humanness and also learn of a likely future our great-grand-kids will wrestle with. --- Agenda For in-person meeting: 6 pm - 6:40 pm: chatting, dinner/potluck in an outdoor area near Fireside room 6:40 pm- 6:45 pm: attendees move to Fireside Room For Zoom meeting: 6:30 pm - 6:45 pm: connect to Zoom For both in-person and Zoom meeting 6:45 pm - 7 pm : checking-in 7:00 pm - 7:30 pm: presentation 7:30 pm - 8:40 pm: all-peer group discussion ---------------
