This isn't to deny that in any transitional era to a mature post-Darwinian paradise, there will have to be huge safeguards - no less elaborate than the multiple failsafe procedures surrounding the launch codes for today's nuclear weaponry. I mean, again, are they creating it to give it to mankind except Celera? This is not a place that attracts the faint of heart. Typically works of fiction like this, Philip K.
