Yes other beings terrestrial and non terrestrial feed off of humans. The other part of enlightenment process of learning/remembering awakening.

The discussion of the taboo doesn't really end with definition.

If you say have a fetish for eating human flesh but are afraid of going to jail then create a conscious being like a human to eat it, there is a bit of a philosophical argument for the act being canabalism.

Certainly debatable but at te root of the objection of eating humans is it about the flesh or the being in the skin bag?

Would you be a pedaphile if you wanted to have sex with children robot AI sex machines?

Or a rapist if you want the robot to fight back and feel fear?

I suppose the difference is the law vs the philosophy of the person acting.

if it's not real human flesh it's not taboo. it's imitation. now if asked if a Synthetic Human ate Synthetic Human Flesh that would be Cannibalism.

the argument your making falls more in line of eating other animals which are not human. and believe it or not many animals that are eaten as food are self aware. is that taboo?

Gizmodo Asks: Is Eating Synthetic Human Flesh Cannibalism? The very thought of asking the question is sickening because I think we know what it means......

They want to feed this crap to us.


gizmodo.com...




hypothetically, what about synthetic human meat, grown without a genetic human donor? Even lab-grown animal meat hasn’t reached that goal yet. As of this summer, lab-grown beef still originates from “fetal bovine serum”—the blood of cow fetuses removed live from their slaughtered mothers and have their blood drained from their beating hearts until they die.

But imagine that lab-grown human calf muscle appears in a petri dish without involving a human fetus. Is consuming a synthetic human burger cannibalistic? Or does it become just a burger?


Why? They can synthesise animal protein, they can farm eels , tilapia and other fish. We cold eat insects. Why leap immediately to synthesizing human flesh?. Wtf?

I might be wrong but wouldn't eating synthesized human protein have the same negative effects eating real human protein does?

I think yes to both your questions...

I can imagine this being the main argument when 3D printed beef-chicken and pork are available so the vegetarians can still be upset about killing animals for food. Killing for food is something I would like to see go away too.

Not exactly. In this case your referring to a specific synthetic. Synthetic humans. Meaning they would mimic or actually believe they were human.

If you want to have sex with AI children are you not a pedophile? If your desire is to have sex with the being that acts like a human child?

But if there is no soul originally connected to the synthetic flesh what's the problem? Cannibals reckon human flesh is the best of all meats available so I can see a few food outlets cashing in on this

Also that is betting on said AI systems not gaining awareness

And if they did how would they see those humans who act like that?

IMO it's the intent and motivation of the person acting. Are you eating synthetic human flesh because it tastes good or because it's like a human?

Exactly. But more to the point why is the person doing it?

Are you eating synthetic flesh because it's synthetic HUMAN flesh?

I think it is being greedy if you are a human who just wants to eat other human synthetic flesh for no logical reason except that it exist...

Only if you're a synthetic human, no?

On a more serious note, why can't they produce synthetic meat from literally any other creature on earth? The idea of eating any synthetic meat seems immoral to me.

are even listening to yourself, it all falls down to the word Cannibalism.
can·ni·bal·ism
[ˈkanibəlizəm]
NOUN

the practice of eating the flesh of one's own species:
"the film is quite disturbing at points with references to cannibalism" ·
 


one's own species, there is no other way to eat human . you can use all the philosophical arguments you want. if it's not human, it's not Cannibalism. now would it be wrong to eat a sentient being or have sex with a sentient being child who is not human, that's an all together different question.

That's the ticket right there!

No more acreage for cattle, pigs, chickens, everyone eats!

Renewable energy, it's a win-win.

Ism is a philosophy.

Sorry but you can't just use literal definitions when discussing morality.

Are you a pedophile if you have sex with robots that look and act like children?

Are you gay if you have sex with only same sex synthetic humans?

This is a bigger discussion than following Websters.

It has to do with the motivation and philosophy of the person acting.

It will be interesting to see the vegetarians argument, and there is going to be one. So many good things will come from 3D printed meat.

Of course we will STILL no be able to feed the world, despot govt won't allow it, because people are of different (fill in the blank reason).
