Martine Rothblatt – The Highest Payed Female CEO Taking Steps in the Right Direction

Immortality, Perfection, AI,  and Peace.  All these represent a future in which we would love to live in.  A place where we can live on forever in a world of perfection with Artificial Intelligence helping us make our every move toward the future. Martine Rothblatt has a dream similar to this.  A future where cyber-consciousness will be a reality, and Digital Immortality will make its mark. Are we really getting close to this era? Rothblatt seems to think so, in fact she is so confident in it she wrote a book called “VIRTUALLY HUMAN: The Promise—and the Peril—of Digital Immortality”.  I won’t spoil anything but the book is pretty revolutionary and it hits right on the mark with a peaceful transition into the future. For me, im actually excited to see what the future holds, but it will be anything but perfect, because even after we get to where we wanna be, we will still be trying just as hard to keep moving forward, to keep pushing the boundary till there’s nothing left to push. But for now i suggest checking out Rothblatt’s new book and taking a look at once she has to say, its pretty futuristicly revolutionary.

“Cornell University’s New York based Weill Cornell Medical College issued a press release today regarding an unsettling trend in the U.S. patent system: Humans don’t “own” their own genes, the cellular chemicals that define who they are and what diseases for which they might be at risk.

Through more than 40,000 patents on DNA molecules, companies have essentially claimed the entire human genome for profit, report Dr. Christopher E. Masonof Weill Cornell Medical College, and the study’s co-author, Dr. Jeffrey Rosenfeld, an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey and a member of the High Performance and Research Computing Group, who analyzed the patents on human DNA. Their study, published March 25 in the journal Genome Medicine, raises an alarm about the loss of individual ‘genomic liberty.’
