Life imitating art?

This sounds creepishly like the plot of the Hulk comic books, if they start stimulating treated cells with gamma radiation it will be exactly like the plot!

Regardless, this is exciting news. Once scientists/doctors can repair these basic parts of the brain, perhaps they can repell damage done by other brain/nervous system diseases like motor-neuron which my grandmother suffered from years before her death (the same disease Steven Hawkin has).

Very cool and hopefully fruitful research!

So...these people are only 'mostly dead'?

Yes i realise the reasoning behind it-all im saying is imo people are going to be in for a grievous disappointment if they expect to get the person back that they lost.That person is gone.What the reanimated flesh suit will be like,is anyone's guess.But the deceased left the fleshly conveyance,and has passed from here.Imo.


Because that's totally what happens with coma patients that come to, or after we revive the dead minutes after death. Oh wait no, if biological life is sufficiently complex, consciousness arises... that sounds much more reasonable.

We live in some exciting times. The next 20-30 years should be groundbreaking unless the one of these destabilized

A biotech company in the US has been granted ethical permission to recruit 20 patients who have been declared clinically dead from a traumatic brain injury, to test whether parts of their central nervous system can be brought back to life.


Umm, did anyone else wonder how? I'm thinking most people in this position will not be giving their consent.

I don't think this a good idea especially if the person will be s till be partually braindead .. they will be walking around like zombies or robots really and don't you think we have enough population already which will also rise??

These "doctors" should be ashamed of themselves, misrepresenting science and giving people false hope. The reality behind this project is much more grim than they let on, but hey, this is how you get the grants rolling in. That's really all this is about, publicity for money for something that may or may not be utterly horrifying.

I can not understand why people are in general so terrified of leaving this terrible place.I mean we have bacon here,i get that, but damn..i just do not Get this horrific fear of passing from here..


That is shallow, There is so much more to this life than bacon!.......

There is beer too.



Just kidding, I don't even drink anymore. But there is beer.

Like everyone, my first thoughts upon reading the OP were of the zombie apocalypse.

So they think death is just like Windows 10 blue screen of death?
we can not scan them for a viruses.

from the looks of most people
I think they have been doing this for a long time.

Reminds me of a SF novel I read years ago...they'd reanimate dead people knowing that the re-vivified would have various degrees of brain damage and near total loss of memory. Because the government was pushing that they could now repay their fair share to society by doing essentially slave labor. For all the benefits they had got the first time alive, they now had the "opportunity" to "pay their fair share back" by doing stoop labor for free.

After all, it's not like it's the same person, right? And the roads are clean, and all the 'bad jobs' are being done by them.

Brain dead is brain dead..there is no reviving dead neurons.

"Kindly sir, have you done the needful and tried turning the person off and turning him back on again?"


Can think of many people who need rebooting.




Looking up nicotinamide riboside right now.....

Source for the op as one is not showing.


Fantastic news if so. Wonder how far they can really go due to severity of damage being fixed. And no, not that a trust nanobots altogether nor nanonbots causing zombies. For those who have lost loved ones due to this type of injury they know what I'm referencing.



What will happen to DNR's if they can start reviving people who are brain dead?

Examining any proposed money it would take it even for normal surgery it would probably also be out of reach for many.


Ideally, medical help, and saving a life shouldn't come with a cost, but I get called altruistic in this statement, most of the time, especially by people in the medical field.

As far as cost, I think it should be available to everyone, and no, there shouldn't be a cost, to anyone.

Not to go too far off from the OP's topic, but money has seriously ####ed up the world, and it's made many people heartless, when they should not be.

Money = time, and I ask this a lot.. "Is your time really worth $15, $25, $50 an hour, or do you realize your trading something irreplaceable, and invaluable for mere baubles.."

As far as the OP, I would be ecstatic if this could be accomplished, as well as many other "science-fiction" based ideas of immortality through medical advancement. Be it the a fore-mentioned nano-bots, or some other method.

Life is a giant puzzle of many, many things, and it will take everyone working together to solve it, and make it better. As it stands, it's all cut-throat, greed and anger, and decisive tactics. People forget, we're all in this together, and no one is getting out alive until we all come together to solve it.

Now I do wonder, what will happen when they bring someone back from being "Clinically brain-dead", will the person be like a child, or will the person have changed, perhaps be enlightened?

The possibilities are endless.


Damn, another human being on the board..
Nice to see ya...Welcome

A coma is not the same as keeping a dead body artificially alive.People in comas can usually still breathe by themselves,and many coma patients have said that whilst in the coma they could hear the people around them.The hamster is still on the wheel,but asleep.If a body is kept alive artificially,the wheel is spinning but the hamster is Gone.About people revived after their heart /breathing stops,or some accident,that person is obviously still in the process of dying and not departed yet,i should think.These interventions are done immediately.I have never heard of someone coming upon a corpse laying there for an hour and rescuscitating it with CPR,eg.

Hmmm... If reviving the brain-dead is their initial goal, they’ll have an inexhaustible supply of test subjects to chose from. Washington, DC would be a good place to start


I wish them success (maybe), but it’s gotten to where I read so much of this stuff these days I’m starting to get a little bit jaded. I have a feeling that there will certainly be significant progress in this (or related) areas of endeavor, as well as other tech fields, but I’m not so sure it will happen in my lifetime. I wish I could come back in 100 or so years just to see how various technologies and scientific fields have advanced. I’m sure it will be a radically different world, but I wonder if it will be anything like what our current futurist gurus have envisioned.

Cheers!!

This is an interesting idea with all of its implications. Please don't let the politicians know though because they might find a way for these so called brain dead test subjects to vote and there's enough fraud already in the system. My best,

Maybe if we knew what we were passing into. I don't mind taking a jog, but I like to know what's ahead before I let my guard down.
I'm not one of the terrified, but I don't like not knowing.

I'd rather have my consciousness downloaded into a computer/robot who's only purpose is to monitor test subjects through a series of puzzles and mazes using a special apparatus that forms portals.

Yes, I want to become GLaDOS.

I know,i realise it can be intimidating,the not knowing what to expect.I don't have religion but i do believe in reincarnation-not to say that inevitably all who departs here automatically reincarnates soon after departure,here or anywhere else-but i believe it is an option.I need a rest from being in human form on this planet,so i certainly hope to have the option to not incarnate again.Idk if i'm up for incarnating into a physical suit again though,anywhere at any time.I'd prefer not too.
