Proof-reading EG
On Earth, the greatest goal of genetic enhancement was the potential extension of lifespan, and various forms of phenotypic gene therapy seemed to bring benefits in this area. Genetic modification had so far produced the talking chimpanzee, and the (biochip assisted) talking cat and dog, and a growing number of people with enhanced genome were being born each year (despite the UN restrictions). The superbright babies that were born towards the beginning of the 2nd century a.t. (the end of the 21st century c.e.) were now young adults, and showed that genotypic modification was much more effective than gene therapy on grown individuals. When the first entirely new species of human, the Merpeople, were unveiled in AT 175, all further Inheritable Genetic Modification (IGM) was outlawed anywhere on Earth by a panicky UN special council.

186 - Release of the Feynman Expert System.

http://www.orionsarm.com/eg-topic/45b2b10d8b211

Originally an open source, typically overengineered expert system released and supported by the Feynman Re-Creation Society in 157 a.t.. The FES was the kiss of death for both the European Union department of educational development (openly controlled by romantics since its founding) and the incredibly influential 'Morality in Education' group of fundamentalist Christians in the United States.

The creature whose skeleton is converted to compubones does not have to be a sophont.
[...]
A more serious problem is the heat generated, even with reversible computing, by a high density of processing, which can, at high levels, cook the human body around the compubones unless further modifications to dissipate it are made.

I think "cook the human body" is anthropocentric because does not have to be a human.

I think i found an inconsistency.

(Should these conversions have their own thread? )

Development of the Merpeople

Fixed (looks like Steve got the space adapted people article already). I'm suggesting that for now we keep the c.d./AT issues in this thread, but keep an eye on how that works out.

Changed to 'cook the flesh'. Thanks!
