Well now, for some time I’ve pretty much had an inkling that a brain or head transplant might come to fruition in my lifetime. After all, once I’d read that they’re making progress in mending spinal cord injuries with stem cells, I knew it would only be a matter of time before someone else figure it out too.

And sure enough, someone did. National Geographic is going to air a special about it.

First of all, knowing people with spinal cord injuries it gives me a glimmer of hope that someday their lives will be changed. Transplanting a brain doesn’t give me the heebie jeebies because I don’t have the religious phobia about playing god. I say play god all we want if it extends human life, or enhances human life.
