Wow..... I recall watching the movie Coma as a little kid and it stuck with me for a long time. They can just keep their chickens if this system comes out of the prototype stage and into actual use. How they raise them now may be crappy and in more ways than one...
However, there is something about that whole concept that goes beyond bad. It's not even just creepy. It's friggen evil. No No ..and No one more time. Oh goodness NO!

I rather the price go up until people buy less of it and things settle into a price range that supports the raising that needs to be done..but there have GOT to be limits. Some limits at some point.

first off - [ re the chicken farming ] i would like to see the costing analysis for this - it may be possible - but is it ecconomical ???

next - the " matrix " is an implausible fantasy

the only possible motive to expand the chicken farm to humans would be to grow clones for transplantable organ harvesting

For the people who wish to read about it in the thread, as opposed to clicking the link:


ord goes a step further and proposes a "Headless Chicken Solution". This would involve removing the cerebral cortex of the chicken to inhibit its sensory perceptions so that it could be produced in more densely-packed conditions without the associated distress. The brain stem for the chicken would be kept intact so that the homeostatic functions continue to operate, allowing it to grow.

Ford proposes this solution for two reasons: to meet the rising demand for meat, particularly poultry, and to improve the welfare of the chickens by desensitising them to the unpleasant reality of their existence.

After this "desensitisation", the chickens could then be stacked into huge urban farms with around 1,000 chickens hooked up to each large vertical frames -- a little like the network of pods the humans are connected to in The Matrix.

W.......T........F.........I think I just vomited in my mouth a little.

Reducing an animal's suffering = great idea.
Reducing an animal to a brainless sack of organs = bad idea.

The designer's intentions are in the right place as factory farms are hell on earth, but this concept seems very disturbing none-the less.

And we're next, if they (whoever they are) think like this, they are twisted beyond sick.

Wouldn't the logical thing to do would to improve the chickens conditions in factory farms?

There are free range chicken farms, corporate greed for profits is the only thing that keeps the torturing of chickens until death going.

I hate the Earth sometimes.

It makes that supposed KFC hoax of a few years back not so crazy now.


This is sick and the people involved in this research are sub-human. Yup, the near future is looking less rosy every day. I for one think a pill should be made for humans (ala Jetsons)


Just pop a pill and all of your daily nutrutional needs are met. Not this type of sci-fi nightmare to feed the human race.

Hi,

S&f! Nice find. Reminds me of the sci-fi novel where they grow a MASSIVE lump of giant living growing chicken flesh and carve bits off when needed!

I've tried vegetarianism but its goddamn awful. Maybe the day will soon come when star trek food replicators are invented that make perfect chicken from atoms that don't depend on a creature dying! They probably already have them on the quiet!

I've got BAD news for you THE MATRIX IS ALREADY HERE! WE ARE IN IT NOW! EVERYONE/ALL WILL SOON UNPLUG FROM THE MATRIX! HOW DO I KNOW? COS I UNPLUGGED MYSELF 10 YEARS AGO!

What, did i get it right?! They want to remove chickens legs and head producing only the body! But how can chickens survive without a head? How is this possible? It's certainly is the horror what i imagined in future, but it's already coming! Shocking!

The depravity of this species knows no bounds. Absolutely disgusting. Why should we be allowed the birds and the bees when we don't even respect them. We are in for a facepalm of biblical proportions.

They will still have the brain stem which keeps the survival processes more or less intact.
There was a famous headless chicken that lived for months-years after having the head chopped off. Even with just the brain stem left and no head it was still able to limp/walk around.
en.wikipedia.org...




On September 10, 1945, farmer Lloyd Olsen of Fruita, Colorado, United States, had his mother-in-law around for supper and was sent out to the yard by his wife to bring back a chicken. Olsen chose a five-and-a-half-month-old cockerel named Mike. The axe missed the jugular vein, leaving one ear and most of the brain stem intact.[2][3] Despite Olsen's botched handiwork, Mike was still able to balance on a perch and walk clumsily; he even attempted to preen and crow, although he could do neither. After the bird did not die, a surprised Mr. Olsen decided to continue to care permanently for Mike, feeding him a mixture of milk and water via an eyedropper; he was also fed small grains of corn. When used to his new and unusual center of mass, Mike could easily get himself to the highest perches without falling. His crowing, though, was less impressive and consisted of a gurgling sound made in his throat, leaving him unable to crow at dawn. Mike also spent his time preening and attempting to peck for food with his neck.

Should consider throwing a few humans in there for good measure.

It's all a matter of perception.

Everything is in the mind...there is no denying this. Our perception is our prison.
