How far can science go? Are we coming to a stage in human evolution where our most basic and primal need and purpose to live, sexual reproduction, is no longer a necessity?
Today, John Gurdon from the UK and Shinya Yamanaka from Japan were awarded the Nobel prize for medicine or physiology for their work in changing adult cells into stem cells.
This may sound inconsequential but what it means is that we now have the capabilities to change any adult cell into any other type of cell. The genetic information contained in a cell from the intestines has all that is needed to produce a new person when transferred into an egg.
More incredible than that, Yamanaka realised that cells could be “reset” and when certain other cells from the body were added they could develop into specialized stem cells capable of repairing the heart after a heart attack and reversing Alzheimers.
So boys, you better get working on providing more pleasure to women than any accessory can, and being more “emotionally understanding”, because we ain’t needed any longer.
There will always be room on Earth for the BDD though (if you know what that is then you are in it,if you don’t then maybe start worrying).
Just doin’ ma duty,
