This is the first post in a series of posts on the genetics of human behavior.
Human behavior is really quite simple. We all have a set of genes that make it possible for us to act. The main ones are called “mutation” and “variation” because they change the structure of our genes. The mutations are the ones that are actually expressed, and the variations are the ones that don’t. We have about 200 million different mutations in our genes, which are the things that make it possible for us to act.
Just because some genes don’t seem to change does not mean that they don’t change. In fact, we see a big shift from gene to gene almost everywhere in the world. In the past, the genes that made it possible for me to act were the same as the genes that made it possible for you to act. That’s because evolution has a built-in bias towards similar genes.
Because you’re not just changing your genes; you are changing your environment. So you are changing your environments. If I want to make your life easier, I’m going to make those things that are going to make you less likely to get sick. I’m going to make your diet better, I’m going to make your life less stressful, I’m going to make your sleep more restful, I’m going to make your sleep better. That is how you will make your life better.
Scientists who work in the human genome project are constantly looking for genes that are associated with healthy or unhealthy lifestyles. The theory is that if you have a gene that seems to be linked to a lifestyle, you might be able to modify that lifestyle to be more healthful.
One of the scientists at the Human Genome Project was an engineer, so he was always looking for ways to improve the lives of his fellow scientists. One of his ideas was to use the DNA of people who had had their genes taken out to create new life. The problem with this idea is that it would also be possible to take out people’s genes (or, at least, their parts of their genome that are important) and then change their lifestyle so that it would be healthier.
The problem is that there are no cells on earth with a human genome. Even if there were (assuming it was discovered within the next 100 years), it wouldn’t make the human genome as we know it possible.
I really want this to be true though. I think it would be cool if we could somehow find a way to “cure” people to live better lives. I guess there isnt really anything wrong with being “different”.
That sounds like an extremely ambitious goal but I think there is a science to it. The idea of curing diseases and improving people’s lives is something that has been shown to be possible. So you want to cure cancer? Just wait until you see a person with cancer. You want to improve the lives of children? Try teaching them to play baseball. You want to make people’s lives more comfortable? Get them a comfortable chair to sit in at the coffee shop.
There are many people who have the potential to be great scientists and engineers, but often dont get the chance to pursue these careers. This is because our society has been extremely biased toward the very thing we need scientists to be doing: curing diseases and improving peoples lives. We have a huge number of people who have the potential to be great scientists and engineers, but dont have any chance to find a job that requires that skill.
