Thought about the same thing.

Wars are sources of alot of bodies, though.

Suddenly I see a bigger picture...

If your significant other suffers irreparable damage to their body, their head can be transplanted next to yours.

Imagine your wife's head being transplanted next to your own!

Would bodies from dead soldiers not be somewhat damaged?

You would need healthy dead bodies from head traumas or similar.

Also what if your a 6 foot 6 black guy and the only donor is a 5 foot tall Japanise man?

That would not be good.

I am sure a percentage of soldiers die without that much body damage. If they were killed by any injuries to the head, their body would still be useable.

Of course that may be a slim percentage, but still a percentage nonetheless.

Of course that may be a small percentage, but still a bigger percentage in war than in a violence-free populace.


Agreed but it would be easier and safer to harvest homeless people, that way you could find one you liked.

What about android bodies? That could work.

We're pretty much already most of the way there, no?

Seems they're easing us into that idea slowly.

I'd rather die than have my head put on someone else's body. That's just freaky.

*shudders*

Well they do say that neccesity breeds invention.



They actually say "Necessity is the mother of invention".

There is no necessity here though, just egos at work.

Transplanting a head is pointless imo because all they would end up with is a vegetable that is so freaked out at having an alien torso and limbs "it" would die from the shock, physical rejection or be a gibbering wreck at least.

Just an overpaid scientists with a god complex and an obscene budget.

This is not the way to cure people.

And how are they hypothesising that they would reattach a severed Brain Stem to a new Spine including every single Nerve which serve so many important functions?


How will they reattach all the severed Viens and Arteries that lead from the Neck to the Brain?



This is flawed beyond belief.




Sounds like something Josef Mengele would have practised...
& no doubt failed at.

Its been in the works for a long time.

skip to 12.25 for the monkey after the transplant was performed.




Robert J. White is the groundbreaking surgeon who in the mid-1970s- against all odds- pioneered the monkey head transplant,

He's also performed head transplants on dogs. Even more, also, however, he's spent the past half a century exploring the way the brain functions and trying to figure out a way to preserve neurological consciousness
