急!!英文段落翻譯?

請幫我翻成中文謝謝

The desire to triumph over our own mortality is an ancient dream,but it hardly stands alone. Whether we look at today's manipulations of our bodies by face-lifts, tattoos, pierced ears or erythropoietin, the same message rings loud and clear: if medicine one day enables us to manipulate our biology in appealing ways,many of us will do so—even if the benefits are dubious and the risks not insignificant. To most people, the earliest adopters of these technologies will seem reckless or crazy,but are they so different from the daredevil test pilots of jet aircraft in the 1950s? Virtually by definition, early users believe that the possible gains from their bravado justify the risks. Otherwise, they would wait for flawed procedures to be discarded, for technical glitches to be worked through, for interventions to become safer and more predictable. In truth, as long as people compete with one another for money,status, and mates, as long as they look for ways to display their worth and uniqueness,they will look for an edge for themselves and their children.

    The desire to triumph over our own mortality is an ancient dream, but it hardly stands alone.

    人們渴求不死之身是一個自古以來的夢想,然而此一渴望並非高不可及。

    Whether we look at today's manipulations of our bodies by face-lifts, tattoos, pierced ears or erythropoietin, the same message rings loud and clear: if medicine one day enables us to manipulate our biology in appealing ways, many of us will do so—even if the benefits are dubious and the risks not insignificant.

    無論我們是否思索現金經由臉部拉皮、紋身、穿耳洞或紅血球生成素來擺佈我們的身體,此一相同的訊息清楚而明白: 如果未來藥物能夠誘人地操控人們的生物化學,許多人將樂於嘗試,極使成效成疑並且風險極大。

    To most people, the earliest adopters of these technologies will seem reckless or crazy, but are they so different from the daredevil test pilots of jet aircraft in the 1950s?

    對多數人來說,最初採用這些科技的人似乎是莽撞或瘋狂的,但他們和1950年代膽大妄為的噴射機試飛員有何不同?

    Virtually by definition, early users believe that the possible gains from their bravado justify the risks.

    幾乎是異口同聲,早期使用者相信經由他們的逞強而可能獲得的進展是值得冒這些風險。

    Otherwise, they would wait for flawed procedures to be discarded, for technical glitches to be worked through, for interventions to become safer and more predictable.

    否則,他們必須等到充滿缺陷的程序被捨棄,技術上的缺失被修正,以及要求較安全和可靠的干預(平息)。

    In truth, as long as people compete with one another for money, status, and mates, as long as they look for ways to display their worth and uniqueness, they will look for an edge for themselves and their children.

    事實上,只要人們在金錢、地位和伴侶上相互競爭,只要人們尋求途徑來展現他們的價值和與眾不同,人們即會為自身和子女們找尋一種優勢。
