10 thoughts on “TIDBIT: PIGS AND MONKEYS”

  1. From cited article: “…genetically-modified cynomolgus monkey cells growing in culture so they produced a fluorescent protein called GFP. This enabled the researchers to track the cells and their descendents. They then derived embryonic stem cells from the modified cells and injected them into pig embryos five days after fertilisation.”

    It occurs to me that this method would be useful in growing ‘advanced’ organs in humans. If one had combed the planet and found certain DNA from either ancient (super)human types or ancient off-planet types, one might want to experiment with humans having certain ‘enhancements’. Still human, but with additions . Trying to ride the tiger’s tail genetically, as it were.

    So, preliminary tests with pig/monkey DNA would be warranted, to scope-out the procedures and difficulties. If the ‘found’ DNA were rare, one would want to conserve it and only use it on a sure thing…

  2. I wonder if the Ebola like disease that has ravaged the pig population recently in China is somehow related to this genetic testing and manipulation.

    In the book “The Plague” that Catherine Austin Fitts recommended, the doctor who is the subject of the book states that vaccines may have become disease vectors for transmitting retroviruses from one species where it may be benign to another with devastating effects.

      Theresa Deisher is probably the best authority on adult stem cells and how human dna is jacking up vaccine recipients. Yep, that scenario is way more likely than not. . Getting harder and harder to not see pharma as humanity’s biggest nastiest monster. Gotta wonder if humanity slowly recognizes this fact every few years or decades just as the vast majority are driven into wars so big they wipe the culture’s memory clean enough to portray pharma as a friend again. Curious how fiercely vaccines were forced down the world’s throat before WWII and suddenly not at all after WWII.

  3. Are these want to be Dr. Frankensteins fans of the Fullmetal Alchemist via either the original manga or the two anime series or both.

    Right now they’re experimenting w/”Four legs good”; but how long before the pig farm’s Napoleon holds a dinner to announce: “Two legs better”?

    How long before the arbitrary one/month line-in-the-ethical-sand clock comes to full measure?

    This is why monkey lives are of no consequence; because they’re pre-human. Post human would be a fait accompli. So theoretically; are the ethical grounds, still shifting, in this still-human era?

    Of course, the ethics will move closer to being right once the chimeric efficiencies & death numbers fall into acceptable guidelines w/in the AI arbitrary probabilities determined by algorithmic mapped parameters. These, decisions are AI reliant, so no human can be called on his or her ethical behavior[s].

    The lab farms experiment, as the background Muzak plays:
    Who’s Your Daddy?

      One wonders if that’s part of the ongoing covert warfare. In this case; specifically, Gene warfare.
