The runaway train: transhumanism and 3D printing a new heart

The transhumanism train is coming down the tracks at an accelerating speed without emergency brakes and it doesn’t look like there will be much of an effort to stop this “runaway train.” So after reading this article and shaking my head, I’m sort of wondering, suppose the point is arrived at where an entire human can be assembled using this technology and something goes wrong like it inevitably will, what happens to the “human” that is 3D printed? Who decides to terminate it? Need a heart? No problem, we’ll just go into your DNA data bank and pull out a few cells and build you a new heart. Insurance? Well, we’ll have to come up with a new life insurance policy for you not to mention your new “health care plan.”

3D heart

 

 

 

 

Scientists have made tiny human hearts that can actually beat from nothing — and they’re so small that they can barely be seen with the naked eye.

The hearts have been grown using only stem cells, for the very first time, the New Scientist reports. As such, it mimics the processes that happen when humans hearts’ grow for the first time — except it happens in a lab, at the prompting of researchers.
