"Genetic modification raises very fundamental questions about our identity as a species," Benjamin Gregg told Ny Tid. "Changing biology will be fundamentally confusing – but will it be bad for us? The answer does not come by itself, we have to construct it.

"I am struck by the pace of development," says Gregg. "I would like to see biotechnology as a tool for social progress, but it also carries with it a threat of setbacks. We must regulate this, but then we must first agree on some definitions. I think the question should be formulated in this way: What kind of human nature should we desire when the goal is just societies? We must also be binsisted that this is not a global conversation today, even though this is technology that will have consequences for all people. "
