Using STEM Cells To Raise The Dead
You gotta picture that goofy-looking guy from the ANCIENT ALIENS TV show on the History Channel, the one with the wild hair, saying this, okay? “You want vampires? ‘Cause that’s how you get vampires!” (That guy’s name is Giorgio A. Tsoukalos, by the way, and he styles his hair that way on purpose. Hey, why not?)
This article has not been vetted for accuracy, and you can color me skeptical that it would pass any such vetting process, but as I write primarily for entertainment purposes and this piece is perfect fodder for the imagination, I have no problem linking to it. (Just don’t misinterpret that as an endorsement.) Supposedly this company called Minds Bioquark has been given the legal go-ahead to begin injecting STEM cells into the brains of brain-dead patients in an attempt to reanimate them. This is only the first step, obviously, to injecting STEM cells into the brains of not just brain-dead but in every way dead “patients”.
From the article: “…to undertake such a complex initiative, we are combining biologic regenerative medicine tools with other existing medical devices typically used for stimulation of the central nervous system, in patients with other severe disorders of consciousness…[this] is a long-term vision of ours that a full recovery in such patients is a possibility, although that is not the focus of this first study. It is a bridge to that eventuality.”
Nope. Nothing that could possibly go wrong, there.
