(Solved) (Latest ver. Aug 2020) - Biology - Biomimicry

Brief item decscription

Item details:


Discover more about biomimicry techniques. You will create a presentation covering the following issues: what implication(s) does this have for our species?; how does this alter our thinking of the way we categorize organisms?; are we the first species in history to be directing our own evolution?; what are the implications for the pharmaceutical companies?; Does that place the pharmaceutical companies in the position of being able to engineer and control human life?

I understand that Biomimicry is a new science that studies nature's best ideas n then imitates these designs and processes to solve human problems. It has nine rinciples which are the following:
Reward cooperation and make symbiotic relationships work
Fit form to function efficiently
Develop diverse possibilities to find the best solution and survival
Recycle and find a use for everything
Require local expertise
Avoid excesses and "overbuilding"
Tap the power of limits
Utilize the sun and other "natural sources" of energy
Use only the energy and resources that are needed

So we within the human race need to utilize our surroundings to assist in sustainability. As nature understands the ability for survival. For instance, trees within the forest take into consideration the their resources and aspects around them. This is something that us as humans need to learn and adopt from these species to assist with our world which is growing in population at an astounding rate. We could/should utilize the resources around us and understand our resources. So for instance, when erecting new buildings one should attempt to place it in an area where other locations could utilize their wastes as a means to protect the sustainability of the area and/or not erect the skyscrapers which are not needed. As the buildings which feed from one another can assist one another in times of tragedy so all aspects will continue to function. (that is one aspect that I got from the topic anyways)

But some say that it is just a way to make a superhuman race - a way to allow individuals to choose their future offsprings out of a catalogue so to speak. It will provide individuals the ability to live longer and more powerful lives which will only increase the world population problems. (what do you think??)

For instance, Bionics are a common element of science fiction, with The Six Million Dollar Man as the probably best-known example. In the mid-1970s, when scientists in a popular TV series rebuilt a wounded, barely-living test pilot into the world's first bionic man, making him "better, stronger, faster," the field of medical bionics was the stuff of science fiction. No longer. On April 3, at Experimental Biology 2006, some of the leading scientists in the rapidly expanding field of bionics explain how much of what was once fiction is today at least partial reality - including electronically-powered legs, arms, and eyes like those given TV's Six Million Dollar Man 30-plus years ago. The symposium on "The $6 Billion (Hu)Man" is part of the scientific program of the American Association of Anatomists. - Is this considered assisting individuals to lead more normal lives which would have originally not had the opportunity (such as amputees, etc.) or just making the world a more robotic environment and/or superhuman race??

These are the areas that I am stuck upon and am looking for assistance. As I think (after research) it would assist the pharmaceutical companies in allowing them to find cures for otherwise incurable diseases - but would it allow them to engineer and control human life?? I would say no - as one is now passing the power of life to the individual and away from pills and medication - but then again I could be incorrect in that aspect.

Any/all assistance would be greatly appreciated.
