AS THE FALLEN WATCHERS IN THE DAYS OF NOAH UNDERSTOOD—Human Brains Implanted Into Mice Don’t Just Survive, They Integrate

The future of personalized medicine will very likely involve human “spare parts” to replace everyone’s failing organs. Scientists have recently made great strides toward this eventual goal by growing human mini-organs — organoids — as a proof of concept. The trick, it seems, is incubating them in environments where they’ll get the appropriate amount of... Continue Reading →

Tom Horn – Science May Have Just Opened the Gates of Hell (Video)

As technologies push humanity toward a god-like transformation, an intellectual-cultural movement known as transhumanism wants to use these new fields of science and technology as tools. They want to radically redesign our minds, memories, physiology, offspring and even perhaps — as Professor Joel Garreau, Lincoln Professor of Law, claims — our immortal souls.  The technological-cultural-metaphysical shift...

Mice Get Freakishly Large Brains Thanks to Human DNA

http://motherboard.vice.com/read/mice-get-freakishly-large-brains-thanks-to-human-dna Super-intelligent lab mice are a common trope of science fiction, ranging from the heartrending Flowers for Algernon tale to the beloved Pinky and the Brain TV series. But today, scientists announced that they have boosted brain size in mice for real, using human DNA as a catalyst. The study’s authors, based out of Duke University,... Continue Reading →
