For those of us who grew up in the Gutenberg galaxy, series like Biohackers (Netflix) transport us to a world where science fiction is no longer fiction. In other words: stupefaction is the queen of the house. The characteristics of the protagonists do not allow us to close our mouths in its six chapters: Mia enrolls in Medicine in Freiburg to get closer to Dr. Tanja Lorenz, professor and determined supporter of synthetic biology, presumed responsible for the death of her twin brother for some terrifying experiments. She is the evil one of the story. The roommates, Ole, shows the newcomer the subcutaneous chip that was implanted to pay at the gas station without taking out the card. He is a supporter of Biohacking, a practice that turns his own organism into home laboratories, and Chen-Lu, who practices genetic agriculture with the aim of integrating “meat flavors into the DNA of mushrooms; make the meat industry obsolete and help the environment ”. Gutenberg’s begins to doubt everything. We move in the slippery world of artificial life, a life far removed from the now common and traditional robots and immersed in the creation of new life forms designed by humans. The German Christian Ditter, responsible for the series, stated that the idea of the mima arose when he asked several scientist friends what was their worst fear about the future. Most answered that it was genetic biology. I don’t know if fortunately or unfortunately, the series alternates that disturbing scientific world with some youth love story in that city where bicycles dominate the asphalt. They are small pauses that allow us to close our mouths.
