    It is a question that requires us to balance the desires of the individual - to carve out a life of happiness and achievement, without undue suffering - with the desires of a societyh that, in the short term, may be interested only in driving down the burden of disease and the expense of disability.

    History repeats itself, in part because the genome repeats itself. And the genome repeats itself, in part because history does. The impulses, ambitions, fantasies, and desires that drive human history are, at least in part, encoded in the human genome. And human history has, in turn, selected genomes that carry these impulses, ambitions, fantasies, and desires.

    It is a world inhabited by "previvors" and "post-humans": men and women who have been screened for genetic vulnerabilities or created with altered genetic propensities. Illness might progressively vanish, but som might identity. Grief might be diminished, but so might tenderness. Traumas might be erased but so might history. Mutants would be eliminated but so would human variation. Infirmities might disappear, but so might vulnerability. Chance would become mitigated, but so, inevitably, would choice.
