Here’s a cool page I found while reading an MSNBC article on how, contrary to all the latest theories, human evolution is actually speeding up.

According to the MSNBC experts, our speedy evolution is going to go one of the five ways they have listed.
Folks, I give you the Post-Singularity humans:
Unihuman – Races disappear as all cultures enter the global mix. Now that we are all truly not just equal, but exactly the same, a caste system is required to help us all just get along.
Survivalistian – Heightened racial differentiation due to some global catastrophe. Apparently we’ll be reverting to our tribal beginnings. I wonder if they’ll have paint ball.
Numan – Two varieties of humans in this possibility: one will be the old-fashioned type that we know today: tree-huggers Bible-thumpers, TV-watchers. The other will be genetically modified to have a really big brain that makes them look like Frankenstein. They will have no desire for trees, Bibles, or TV.
Cyborg – If you watch Star Trek you already know this one: half robot, half man. This is probably Brother Ray’s* choice.
Astral – Totally genetically modified into some sort of star traveller. Stephen Spielberg would probably cast this type in a film about, er, star travellers.
Which type are you?
*Brother Ray is Ray Kurzweil.
