[On break] The smell of abomination in the morning

This is a spring break post, mostly a place-holder, with a bit of book promotion too. Regular posting resumes April 4th.

Did you know my book includes an explanation of how Moreau’s experiments could be done with modern-day technology? Or at least how the existing theory supports the possibility, and where the particular holes in our understanding are. It doesn’t have anything to do with genetic engineering, because the idea is to generate a recognizable human from a nonhuman species.

I’ll do some readings:


Imagining such a project without laboratory agony, without Moreau’s lack of rigor in his end-performance variables, all of which are important but relatively straightforward in gut-level right and wrong … then discussing what’s wrong with it becomes all the more interesting and important.
