Just think of the possibilities...

I think I would like to have my head transplanted on the body of a beautiful blonde with big boobs. There are some very interesting things one could do. And that leads to the question; if a man has a female body transplant and has sex with another man is he gay from the neck up or just a slut from the neck down???

Of course using the ladies showers would be out unless the man had a very effeminate face as a man. Then there is one final question; would you be a lesbian if you had sex with a woman, or just a dirty old man???

Wouldn't your brain be confused when you look in the mirror and that would cause a mental breakdown as you would know that its not your actual body
Also I can see lots of kidnappings for body parts for the elites so they always look young. I bet they have done that for years even hundreds of years.

It really depends on whether you're getting a busty blonde's body so that you can completely mess with the fabric of normality, or if you're doing it for some other reason. If you're doing it because you identify as a woman, then you'd be completely straight when you slept with a man, because you'd be a woman. And yes, you'd be a lesbian when you slept with a woman.

If you're doing it to mess with people, as you suggested, then I guess you'd be gay when you slept with men, and straight with women. Pretty sure it relies entirely on what your mental state is, as to what gender you are (in this particular case)

There would be no way to turn a man into a woman given todays technology.

Karl Pilkington, bless his round head, has approached this subject in his own special way. Some might find this offensive, others may wet themselves. Watch at your own risk!

Say for instance that Einstein or Gandhi could still be alive because of such a procedure?

Well, I can only hope the donor body is Dennis Rodman.
1. A Slamdunking Einstein is just too awesome for words.
2. No more Dennis.

win win

My number one question: Where are these bodies coming from?
My number two question: Are there cyborg options?

Hence a problem and by that I mean if a persons greatest accomplishment was working as a cashier at 7/11, are they actually, eligible for a transplant?

I mean if your child is born retarded are you willing to enjoy his or her existence for one lifetime? Are you willing to realize that his or her termination after your child's first lifetime is enough?

Any thoughts?

Say for example there is a person akin to Einstein or Gandhi that decides they do not want a transplant?

I get the impression they want to try and start to refine 2 things. 1) face transplants. and 2) body transplants. Like eventually if they could do both of them really good, then it would be a breakthrough in cosmetic surgury and for other reasons like you outlined. Like if you watch the movie: The Island, it was kinda like that. But take that to the next level where a person could go into this clone factory and say get any body they want, and any facial look they want. I think with people being so vain, and egotistical already, that would be an easy sell. I'm not saying everyone would do it, just the vain, egotistic types, but it's just a game changer that's all. Taking things to a new level which is what every industry strives for I guess. And no I' wouldn't do it.

Wow...

Ok, I wasn't thinking all that deeply on the subject to be fair. But here's my take on things.

Transplants are a bit of a perfect storm sort of thing. You need to have an extreme set of circumstances to pull it off I'd imagine.
Obviously the donor body (my view only) should be from a major head trauma, causing complete catastrophic brain death. I would not consider someone mentally retarded ever being used. Then you need the head, being kept alive kept alive by medicine perhaps.. Perhaps they are an extreme crush victim that when freed would bleed out...? Would they bargain for their life in such a circumstance? No doubt.

Would they be able to live with an alien body to them down the road...? That's a hard one to answer and would vary upon individual.

For me, I would say yes.

Am I qualified to make such a statement? I would also say yes because I've been wheelchair bound now for the last 10 years or so and would literally cut off my ENTIRE body to have a chance to go hiking again with my kids.



Does the cashier become relevant? Nope, that cashier might seem like an unaccomplished loser to you or me, but perhaps to his son he is the greatest dad who always has the right answers.

So, I think that in an extreme case of a devastating accident, that once un-extraordinary cashier would then become an extraordinary example of human intellect and skill.

Should it be done?? (insert deity of choice) knows!

Mmm since most of the immune system is in the gut. It might work out better than just transplanting a limb. Which might be a worry as this might be the green light to give it a go. The next thing might be just dropping a brain into a donor body with its brain removed, with nano surgeons fixing it in Mind blowing!

With respect to my input this is not an alien body and with respect to cloning Yes there is the issue of degradation over time. With regards to cloning genetic material, over 500 years?

It would pretty much constitute the least of our worries.

There pretty much very little chance of degradation in relation to cloning over 500 years, pretty much once one gets into the thousand year territory? This is where a clone of and original begins to show relevant differences related to the survival of the individual.

In that time span humans could fully develop the means to support a brain in an artificial environment, capable of independent movement.

In other words a functional robot or android structure is designed to support a human brain

Any thoughts?

Well if it was premeditated by the person getting the head swap I wouldn't think so.

Keeping the trans-planted head alive for a few days while on ventilatory support is not much of a trick. Getting the spinal cords to successfully connect enough to allow some motion and breathing would be a tremendous start, but the surgeon will not accomplish this with higher mammals in this lifetime.

Right....so I have a couple of questions to ponder:

1. I am 30 years old, if I were to have an accident, destroy my vital organs and then have my head placed upon that of a 20 year old, how old would I be? do I celebrate two birthdays?

and..

2. Given the fact that I would mostly consist of somebody else's body, am I still me or am I them? Am I still my mothers son or am I still his mothers son?

3. Not a question but an out there prediction: This procedure will one day be made redundant due to the invention of so called "Character Storage and Soul Transference" by which you will be able to upload your total mind including habits, preferences, characteristics and memories; everything that you are to a data base and have it downloaded into an age specific clone perhaps no younger that 25 years old and no older than 40 years old.

Just a thought.

Depends on how you define yourself.

For me it's my mind alone. If my mind was transferred to a giant cyborg sloth body I would still consider it "me".
