The first human head transplant. Fake or not?I don't think that's real it sounds too soon to be real
What the fuck do you think, fake or not. You have The Guardian writing it about it. It's gonna go down.
The results, however, will disappoint the transhumanist cultists, since the guy is clearly a shucking and jiving hucktster. They'll just say my bad to the programmer family, who signed the release of course, and move on to the next thing.
Stem cell research will probably solve the spinal cord repair issue, eventually. Think of the donor body as a life support system: a heart and lungs that machines can make work, to keep your brain alive until they can grow you a cloned body.
Honestly, would they really need the whole body? If we don't already have a machine that can oxygenate and pump blood (a heart-lungs box), that should really be something we're working on. Add a sugar drip and a dialysis machine to the loop, and you have The Head That Wouldn't Die.
Thing is, what the fuck would necessitate a WHOLE BODY transplant? What have you gotten up to that the only salvageable part of you is your head? You were decapitated and then your body was thrown into a volcano? This is "because we can" mad science stuff.
And if they're announcing it to the public you KNOW the military is decades ahead in tech.
