It is June 2049. You’re strapped into your seat about to lift off on an interplanetary journey to Mars. Your job as an astronaut was determined before you were born as part of a pre-birth contract that paid for your genetic design. Your father had always wanted to be an astronaut but never made it to the final round of interviews and instead made a career as a military pilot. Since he didn’t earn enough to pay for all your genetic tweaking, he signed the pre-birth contract with Clones R Us for future employment for you as an astronaut and this Mars mission will pay the final instalment of that contract. Your father, being the vain type, decided to clone himself, so you have his blue eyes, his brown hair, and even a birthmark on your right shoulder. Unlike your father, you have never been ill because you were screened for genetic diseases and were gifted a customized genetic heritage based on professional astronauts, so you have just the right temperament, intelligence, and leadership to do the job.

In this connection the article by L.A.H. Commons-Miller and L.M Commons “Speciation of Superions from Humans: Is Species Cleansing the Ultimate Form of Terror and Genocide?” ( Journal of Adult Development 2007, Vol. 14, pp. 122–125) is of interest. Its abstract begins: “Using ideas from evolution, and what is known about higher stages of development, we examine a hypothetical scenario, in which new humanoid species, called Superions, are produced. What would then happen with current humans?”
