In the Bladerunner sequel all the hubbub seems to stem from the idea that human/machine hybrids are a big NO NO. The fictional society is so damned advanced i.e replicants, it's ok for them to be slaves and sex bots but if babies happen then we gotta have a war about it. Then theres Westworld where the A.I/hosts are fighting just to exist. I understand stand that packed in there is allegory for problems in our real world. But if we someday have Artificial Humanoid Beings would that be a next step in evolution? Given the bad things dont happen i.e Terminator or basically The A.I decides people are toxic which is honestly is accurate AF.

I would say that 2049 leaves it pretty ambiguous if there are any human/replicant hybrids. Replicant/replicant reproduction is controversial enough in that world.

But I don't think there will necessarily be a time when people are purely all-natural DNA and there are synthetic people that are so close that their DNA matches ours. I think we'll change our own genes first before we model a non-human on them.
