Our ancestors desired to be stronger, smarter, and have better off-spring. Early humans envied animals. They had speed, night vision, and were great hunters. The Ancient Assyrians created powerful guardians, Lamassu, by combining a bull’s body, bird’s wings, and a king’s head. The Ancient Egyptians created the great sphinx, by combining a lion’s body, bird’s wings, and the head of the pharaoh, Kafre. The Ancient Greeks created centaurs, by combining man and horse. The dark ages produced kings with names such as “Richard the Lion-hearted”. During the early Twentieth Century the academic elite tried to improve the race through eugenics, which included sterilization and genocide. Today, science tells us that genetics is the solution. Human desire for control of individual destiny has come full circle from a primitive man’s dream to a scientific reality.
