Surgeon Sergio Canavero, director of the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group in Italy, thinks he’s developed a new technique for head transplants that will avoid some of the problems caused by earlier attempts at such surgeries involving dogs and monkeys.
“In a paper published in Surgical Neurology International, he has outlined his technique: first, both the transplant head and the donor body would need to be cooled in order to slow cell death,” CNET explains. “Then, the neck of both would be cut and the major blood vessels linked with tubes. Finally, the spinal cords would be severed, with as clean a cut as possible.”

It's not strange if you want to clone a body and have a shell be the doner. Then insert your 100 year old aging brain into a new mechanized meat suit, Inject some embryonic stemcells and you've just extended life expectancy by a couple hundred years.
I think that's what they want right? Oh and also if they die they can just *Resurect them* as long as ( There is less cell Death)
Doesn't Elysium come to mind?

IS will need to find a new method of execution.
I don't see what is evil or creepy about this. If someone is paralysed and another brain dead, then whats wrong with creating a functional human from the two bodies? One life is better than none surely? Then again most advancements are met with the same "its immoral and evil" arguments, but then become mainstream and unquestioned later with people taking them for granted.
