Rosalyn W. Berne, Ph.D. explores the intersecting realms of emerging technologies, science, fiction and myth, and the links between the human and non-human worlds. A university professor in the field of Science, Technology, & Society (STS), her interests include nanotechnology, new reproductive and other bio-technologies, and inter-species communication. Rosalyn also uses her gifts of extra-sensory perception and empathic intuition in healing work with horses, humans, and other beings. Her publications include two academic books, numerous papers, and books in the science fiction and body-mind-spirit genres.
This book melds essays on biotechnology written by scientists into science fiction stories. It opens a conversation about the morality of what we may one day be, and what it may mean to be human as our biotechnological endeavors continue to evolve. The biotechnology "revolution," launched on a global scale many decades ago, has taken a direct course toward re-creating life. Yet there are still many choices to be made in shaping the future that it may one day make possible. The book motivates readers toward deep reflection and continual discourse, which is essential if biotechnology is to evolve in ethical, meaningful, and sustainable ways.
