A very good vision on the 'perfect' semi-organic lifeform.
Probably the biggest potential downfall of this race is its inability to continue if the central infrastructure is somehow taken out of the picture. Unable to reproduce without it, tied psychologically to it, the centralized nature might be an impediment to it taking over. If the sun went crazy and EMP'd the hell out of the solar system, humanity might eventually recover. These guys would not.
This comment of mine is somewhat ironic - I had the Zoimorphisits School of Magic which is not much less of a mouthful, but shares similar bio-modding, with magic of course.
Genomorphing? - This is already in use in a few places.
Clade is a word I literally learned yesterday when looking at wikipedia about how closely related puffins are to penguins (they are both birds, that's it..). It a nice technical word, but hardly common.
Biogenesis? - Creation of new types of life from other living things.
To me this is like one of Mr. Holiday's speedpaints. It suggests, hints and piques the imagination while being quite open. Of course it prompts more questions then it answers, but still, its awesome! Go to Comment
1.Mechanically strengthen the tissues to survive much greater G forces, either through greater tensile strength or greater elasticity.
2. The brain could be held away from the brain case by an active suspension - one that sensed the acceleration of the brain case and attempts to reduce the forces on the brain itself.
3. Neural connections could be made 'wireless' so there would be less connections to tear. Body nerves interface with very short range, very high bandwidth wireless connections to receptors implanted in the brain itself.
4. At the cost of memory fidelity/processing speed, the brain's cells are reformatted to act like a RAID device, allowing significant cell damage without loss of brain function. This would need to be tied with neural regeneration otherwise this is a one trick pony since multiple injuries would still mess you up.
Basically, memories and key functionalities get spread wildly through the brain so that you would need a lot more of the brain to be damaged to lose function. Go to Comment
