Absolutely disgusting. It's horrifying when you consider the extent of animal testing still in existence.

It's things like this that would make an apocalypse in December bearable. There's so much more evil in the world that will be dying than good.

(Not that I am doubting that their are people with regrets who do try to "transition back", you do very rarely hear about it, but I highly doubt it would be anywhere near 66%.)

"I believe the experience that transgender's have had after surgeries would provide some insight, but then again 66% of those surgeries are eventually reversed."

Not to be rude, but I would really like to see your source for that. Because otherwise I'm calling severe bullpoo on that.

@ LillianDulci I think, personal desire may be "hardwired" but now you introduce a bunch of new hormones and whatever damage occurs in the process.

BTW- the old guy is scary as poo.

I don't think they'd ever intentionally do a mixed gender transplant like that, the rehab would be hard enough as is just with a normal one, if it was even possible.

I'm curious about if the person would have to be the same gender as the body they're being transported to, or if everything would function properly if, for example, a girl's brain was transported to a guy's body. hmm

No, thats not it at all.....I mean you, as a human, and your thoughts.....No matter how many brains, bodies or whatever, you can only handle so much.

"I still dont think its very plausable. The human "mind" ages also."

The key term that Steelgrid is using is "healthy brain." You're right that you can't keep a brain going on forever. Genes have present "off" switches after a certain number of mitotic divisions. Scientists are working on how to change the structure of division to limit what they call "senescence," but that's a ways off. (They're barely able to do it in roundworms. However, if a young person had terminal cancer that had not metastatized to the brain, the theory is sound that a brain transplant could lengthen the life of that person. Of course, that, in and of itself, is a ways off. :)

drgnfire: What he was talking about was using the body like a heart/lung machine. Because the spinal cord was severed there would be no limb or lower body function. Medicine can't regenerate the spinal column, that hasn't prevented them from trying to though.

Even if they could completely place a head onto another body and the two function without complication or paralysis, The brain still ages and it will die eventually.

No one can cheat death, you can only postpone it awhile longer.

what about the spinal cord? how would you keep the head in place without it falling off or without leaving the body paralyzed even if the head did function.
