Max Hodak considers that 15 years of “breeding and engineering” would be enough to obtain new “super exotic species”.

Max Hodak, president and co-founder of Neuralink, a company of which Elon Musk is the lead partner, says there is now enough advanced technology to create a real-life Jurassic park.

“We could probably build a jurassic park if we wanted to “, tweeted Hodak. Although “they would not be genetically authentic dinosaurs, but perhaps with fifteen years of reproduction and engineering we would obtain new super exotic species“he added.

They reconstruct for the first time the appearance of a duck-billed dinosaur with a "strange" tubular ridge that lived more than 70 million years ago

Later, Hodak wrote that biodiversity is valuable and that “conservation is important and makes sense. But why do we stop there? Why don’t we try more intentionally create novel diversity?”, he asked himself.

According to the Futurism portal, specialized in science and technology, Hodak’s idea is “great”, but it has the risk of being “extremely counterproductive”, as in the films of the ‘Jurassic Park’ saga. Resuscitating or creating new varieties of animals would be the same as introducing a new invasive species in an ecosystem that is not suitable for sustenance, warns the environment.
