Is Mankind's Future Evolution Already Within Us?

Geneticists examining the differences between Neanderthal DNA and the DNA of modern man have discovered that for each species different parts of the overall design have been switched on and off. The difference between Neanderthal and Homo Sapiens is in the on-off pattern of the switches.

A program. 

Combinations of the switches appear to produce an effect like a volume control, making arms more or less longer, brains more or less larger.

One wonders... are there gene switches waiting to be toggled in modern man that can produce a post-modern individual? Does the next version of the genus lie within us?

Should mankind artfully become its future self?
