There's always so many things to keep a mind's eye on.

A mind's eye and a number of useful assets.

Interesting. Using mutations to eradicate mutations. From a scientific point of view, this is a huge achievement.

From the average American's point of view, it's only one step closer to genetically engineering children to be exactly what they want.

Thank you for sharing this article. I will be researching it further.

To be fair the average American is an idiot who thinks that abortion is the ultimate evil so this is probably on the same scale, unless it means they can eradicate us, in which case they would be all for it.

Proud to say I understand basically none of this.

Interesting. I could see a number of applications and abuses that could result. Something to watch closely.
