"...notions of what today passes for tolerably good mental health will be superseded. They may be written off as mood-congruent cognitive pathologies characteristic of the old DNA regime. For dismally low standards of well-being - or rather ill-being - are typical of emotional primitives from the Darwinian Age. By contrast, life in the new reproductive era is destined to get incomparably richer as we rewrite our own genetic code. Ultimately, the deliberate re-creation of any of today's state-spectrum of malaise-ridden waking and dreaming consciousness may be outlawed as cruel and immoral. Or perhaps once the exquisite alternatives to Darwinian life have been explored, a regression to earlier forms of consciousness will be discounted as simply inconceivable..."
