'''Universal Constructor: Theory, Principles, and Practice'''
by Wayne Yin
...and thus arose the need for a more generalized theory encompassing a "Universal Constructor" (UC) that would be able to handle such arbitrarily complex nanoscale design problems. Unlike the simple atom by atom nanotech constructors common today, a UC would combine millions upon millions of atoms in a parallel process that could produce materials or mechanisms of unmatched intricacy on a scale currently not possible even with the best nanoscale foundry. One of the most obvious applications of a UC -- if its construction were ever practical -- would be the genetic manipulation of lifeforms at the atomic level to cure disease, correct congenial defects, or expand their capabilities in beneficial ways. Theoretically, if an "intelligent," real-time control program were developed for the UC, then autonomous, artificial nanoscale organisms could be assembled. Careful design could create organisms that might actually exist in "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbiosis symbiosis" with other life. However, a UC also creates the tangible threat of a "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grey_goo grey goo" scenario: the design of an organism that is so evolutionarily advanced as to overwhelm the current ecosystem... ==See also== *VersaLife Category:Deus Ex books, magazines and newspapers
