Frankendoctor, Sergio Canavero, plans to be the first to carry out the transplant of a cryogenically frozen brain into a living body! We may not know exactly what that means, but either way it sounds like something from a horror movie!
Dr. Canavero says the procedure should take place no later than 2018. He believes the transplant will answer questions that we would never be able to answer while still alive, such as the existence of God and an afterlife, stating: “The head transplant gives us the first insight into whether there is an afterlife, a heaven, a hereafter, or whatever you may want to call it, or whether death is simply a flicking off of the light switch and that’s it.
Dr. Canavero believes that if he can prove that our brain does not create consciousness, two things will happen: religion will no longer exist and we will have to reconstruct the meaning of life.
Successful or not, this procedure sounds crazy, but will change the face of science forever.
