Advances in neural implants and genetic engineering suggest that in the not-too-distant future we may be able to boost human intelligence. If thatâEUR(TM)s true, could weâEUR"and should weâEUR"bring our animal cousins along for the ride?

The good friends above said it all. We should only not do this to animals but stop messing with humans as well. Just because we have the ability to do something is not a reason to proceed. I'd sooner the animals over humans who have ruined this Earth and are now hell bent on inflicting themselves on other planets.
