Neo-Geneticism is the Cosmic Era system of belief (and the underlying technology) that the improvement of humanity will not be done by exceptional individuals and lifetime accomplishments, but rather in utero, and through manipulation of the human genome and genetic augmentation
Eager to distance itself from the racist and brutalist connotations of eugenics, beneuegenics (or literally good eugenics) is the grading of the quality of a person's genetic material
Also known as the Fortress of Beauty, Praesidium Qetesh is the seat of the Glamourian Council, and
Formerly known as Annika Monroe of New Newark Arco #6
Also known as ambrosia, nectar, bio-gel, and a dozen other copyrighted and patented trade names.
It's not enough to be GeneFixxed, everyone has to know that you have the best GeneFixxing possible. The best way to do that is to have it visible.
That's why VendiGeneticia has released it's GeneBrand technology. Customers have the choice of nine different brandings, from the subtle VG brand discretely placed at the customer's request, to the deluxe armband, to the VG enthusiast skin mosaic, popular among our artiste community.
A leader in cybernetic and genetic augmentation, it is little surprise that most nations have adopted the Nipponese scale for grading the abilities of augmented human operatives.

Phenocladistics is an emerging field of genetic engineering that differs from gene cleaning, augmentation, and cosmetic alterations. The creations of phenocladistic manipulation are capable of breeding true and creating more of their own kind, providing there is similar blood stock for them to breed with.

In the Cosmic Era, the Cosmetologist is a highly skilled geneticist, and they are consulted on everything from hair remedies to exotic full body alterations.
One of the side effects of the rampant cloning and genetic augmentation in the Cosmic Era is the slow emergence of genetic castes.
Think twice before giving your children extreme in utero biomodification. Your decision will last for my lifetime.
These rare, fist-sized spiders do not make webs, but rather excrete secretions which harden upon contact with air. These "droppings" resemble barley-sized spider eggs, or even lustrous pearls, once the slime coating them, dries up. In fact, dried Pearl Spider "drops" are indistinguishable from the marine varieties produced by mollusks, and hence of identical value on the open market!
Several centuries ago, they were studied by naturalists, and several observations were made. Firstly, was that these spiders "lay" these pearls for no apparent or discernible "natural" reason, and secondly, the naturalists had discovered that the more these spiders ate or were fed--and they were true omnivores--the larger the spider pearls came out.
A cottage industry began. Enterprising merchants hunted and collected these creatures across the lands, erecting spider-farms for the manufacture of Spider Pearls. It wasn't long before someone got the idea to force-feed the spiders, ala foie gras geese, and soon, the fattened spiders began pooping out pearls of great size! (relatively speaking). The regular pearl market came to disarray, and prices and value fluctuated wildly.
