    I hope I get to see the day when we understand the meaning/purpose of every single atom in relation to all the others in a human DNA moecule.

    On that day, we’ll have complete control in reprogramming our DNA to our benefit.

      yes, I think it’s one of the perspectives of the Singularity’s program.
      But sociologically few questions are coming : on social inequalities (who can access to these technologies ?), security of body (the “convergence” explains that disease will be fought by nanobots : nanobots which will be uploaded by Internet ! So, potentially hacked …) etc.

      The Singularity is a very passionate perspective but her questions (in social perspective) too.
