Every "self" gets lost eventually. It's sad when it happens before death (we're on our 3rd go-round with grandparents with Alzheimer's or
dementia now), but that is a natural artifact of science prolonging life.
I would rather lose my "self" naturally through death or old age than have this sort of technology running amok.
If you want to talk about crazy - crazy is the greedy cancer doctors in Houston, Tx who cured my grandmother of cancer at the age of 80, when she was
already losing her memory, just to prolong her suffering with Alzheimer's. No, we can't let an old woman just die in peace - we have to make sure
she loses every shred of dignity first!
Science is reaching that tipping point of doing more harm than good, I think. At least it is currently.
