With the technology currently available to us today, the possibilities of future
techniques and results are endless. Only decades ago, the procedures of today
were only science fiction. With the combination of bionics, already existing cosmedic
and corrective surgery, the results of tomorrow's surgeries and procedures are
an endless guess.
Just as the possibilities of future techniques are an unknown awe, so are
the applications. At the rate of which current research, it is possible to see
prosthetic limbs that have strength beyond that of normal limbs, or even entire
bodies made of metal. All of these cases, methods, and procedures contribute to
our Vision of Perfection, as one of the earliest forms possible.
Our perfect appearance is one of the first stepping stones our Vision
of Perfection, in which we take a more proactive approach to making corrections,
before they are made (such as cloning and genetic engineering). From the Renaissance
and founders like Vesalius to modern day with Morestin, we can see our attempts,
and their effects, to reach our vision today, in everyday culture and society.
Only time will tell as to how far and what we are capable of doing with our knowledge,
and how far and where this Vision of Perfection will take us.
