Today, humans suffer from a wide range of diseases and disorders that didn’t exist in the past, a trend that will likely continue well into the future. Here are some unexpected and wholly unpleasant diseases we’ll eventually have to contend with.
Personality Identity Disorder
We’re increasingly offloading and segmenting our brain’s cognitive processes to the Internet. Our artificially intelligent personal assistants will work on our behalf to perform odd jobs and other functions delegated to them. By consequence, they’ll start to assume our identities in proxy. These cloud exoselves will learn from us and behave exactly the way we do.
We’re not entirely sure how our bodies will react to cybernetic implants over time, or the kinds of health problems they’ll introduce.Some implants may cause severe allergic reactions or exaggerated immune responses. Complications could arise in the way implants interact with tissues surrounding it, including infection, inflammation, and pain. They could also interfere with normal bodily functioning. There’s also risk of rejection. Additionally, these implants could start to decay and degrade in unexpected ways, leading to life-threatening toxic effects and various forms of infections.
V.R. Gaming Addiction
There’s often a fine line between recreation and addiction. But since 2013, when the American Psychiatric Association deemed “internet gaming disorder” a condition warranting increased scrutiny, more and more researchers have been sounding the alarm about the negative consequences of gaming addiction — especially among men.
The psychological term “dysphoria” refers to a general state of unease, anxiousness, or dissatisfaction with life. There’s currently a good deal of expert speculation that, for some, heavy use of personal and mobile technologies (namely smartphones) is producing disorientation or anxiety. And the incorporation of more powerful and more invasive technologies may exacerbate some of these effects.
Virtual Reality Addiction
Virtual reality is introducing us to environments and settings far more compelling than real life. Digital worlds are more and more “real” and blended with our physical world.This is mental disorder that disconnects mental thought ,memories,surroundings,action and idenify. people suffering from this disease disconnects reality and always lives with virtuality. Time of stress can worsen the condition of a man .generally people devlops blurred sence of identity. Their mental health problems such as depression ,anxiety and suicidal thoughts.
Nature Deficit Disorder
This disease actually happens in children as they spends less time outdoors, and the belief that this change results in a wide range of behavioral problems. This disorder is not recognized in any of the medical manuals for mental disordersor . Evidence was compiled and reviewed in 2009. Richard Louv has stated “nature-deficit disorder is not meant to be a medical diagnosis but rather to serve as a description of the human costs of alienation from the natural world”.
Ancient Viruses from Arctic Permafrost
The Earth’s melting polar ice caps get a lot of attention, but most of the focus is on rising sea levels. That could change in a hurry if a long-lost virus — something locked for millennia in the arctic permafrost — reemerges. Researchers have already turned up the DNA of a 30,000-year old “giant” virus in the Siberian ice. “Special environments such as deep ocean sediments and permafrost are very good preservers of microbes and viruses because they are cold, anoxic, and in the dark,” .
While the giant virus doesn’t seem to be a threat to people beacause could be preserved in ancient layers of arctic ice. “ Now , the superficial permafrost layers are melting and releasing buried microorganisms,” and this process is steadily accelerating.
