– The super wealthy will have such access to high levels of health care, biotechnology and robotics that they could develop into their own species of being, argues a Silicon Valley  futurist. The rich will be able to grow their own organs and manipulate genetics for superior abilities and freedom from disability and disease, according to Paul Saffo, who teaches at Stanford University. “The simple fact is that first we invent our technologies and then we turn around and use those technologies to reinvent ourselves,” Saffo tells the Times of London.

“I sometimes wonder if the very rich can live, on average, 20 years longer than the poor. That’s 20 more years of earning and saving,” he adds. “Think about wealth and power and the advantages that you pass on to your children.”
