I see you read that article as well, think about it, if china succeeds in this, who knows what is to come in the near future for humanity, no other country was willing to do it, but china may be the ones to make it happen, already millions are being poured into this.
This does set the stage for China's dominance in the near future. If the West doesn't stop with its restrictions on science, it will eventually become the old dinosaur behind the East's intellectual progress. Another implication is that it allows more people to live longer. Imagine if Soros just replaced his head if he were about to die. The old may continue their dominance over the youth. No more posterity.
I wonder what will happen to the brain in a total body transplant. I know that other organ systems and gut bacteria can affect the brain so what will a completely new body do?
Whatever would happen, I guarantee it'll be something pretty fucking interesting. Also, this begs the question: if cybernetics and general prosthetic tech get advanced enough, will it be possible for a person to just be a brain floating inside a completely artificial body within our lifetimes, if only at a very late stage?
I hope Soros is the first to try it. If there are complications and he dies hurrah, if not then we get a cool videogame boss.
I don't see this bringing about immortality, though. The head and the brain will still age and even if you don't die eventually you'll become an Alzheimer's-riddled vegetable.
This, if we're going to find any way to get to actual immortality then we're going to have to find a way to stop mental deteriorationor else what's the point?
, and that may not even have a solution.
The answer may lie in chimpanzees or monkeys as they do not get Alzheimer's.
China can do it because they do not have the same ethics as we western people do. That's their force. That's why they are doing this, they don't fear the repercussions, if they can experiment on stem cells, embryos or fetus, they have no ethics to wonder if they should do it or not, they will. They do clonage, they test drugs, that's the communist mentality, but is it morally right?
If the moral is to be the winner at some game, let's imitate china and become soulless machines, with AI and cameras, and suicide nests. If the moral is the well being it's gonna be different.
Is this really progress?
This isn't a good thing. Why are cyberniggers so arrogant? Have you no sense of spirituality?
What they ommit is that the corpse used to be alive before
Well, we should look into why do we get Alzheimer's in the first place, in this dopamine-overloaded world of ours...

Long story short:<Will Ghost in the Shell be possible?>>944
That also brings up what this Horsefucker was talking about: >>886
How else would they keep the body "alive" or preserved? If they prove that they CAN
do this on anyone (With a likely enough chance of success, assuming that they body and head can be "compatible" and there won't be any rejection), how will they find donors? Will they choose from the vegetables on medical care? Will they snatch the homeless off the streets or offer it as a way to pay off your family's debt? If someone is signed up as an "organ donor", will they actually let the person die just so that someone else can live? How will it be determined who will get a head transplant and who doesn't? How will this effect reproduction? This opens an entire CHASM
of ethical questions.
I wonder what came of this project. Haven't heard any news about it since 2 years ago.

That tells you everything you need to know.
It was a stunt to demonstrate the surgeon knife skills.
