A nightmarish development is taking place in Israel where scientists have created the world’s first “synthetic embryo” opening the “door” of horror to what may follow in the coming years.
As the saying goes “the road to hell is paved with good intentions”.
Studying the details of the research, which according to “The Guardian” was published in the journal “Cell”, one cannot help but shudder to read that neither sperm nor eggs were needed to create the synthetic embryo.
The first “success” of the research is that it makes the process of fertilization, the simultaneous contribution of the female and the male to create a new life, completely unnecessary.
All the Weizmann Institute researchers needed for their experiments were pluripotent mouse cells, also known as stem cells.
By joining two stem cells and directing them appropriately using chemicals, they succeeded in obtaining an experimental embryo. In fact, as the embryo grew, it developed the first complex cellular structures inside it, which had all the necessary characteristics to develop into a beating heart, intestine or brain. And not only that. According to the leader of the research team, Professor Jacob Hanna, the synthetic embryos developed an umbilical cord on their own, as well as the membrane that surrounds natural embryos in the mother’s abdomen, known as the lacrimal sac.
The researchers argue that the creation of synthetic embryos will help science understand better understand the development of natural embryos and organs.
They add that this could potentially lead to the discovery of new drugs for serious diseases and open up new avenues for research.
Of course, the creation of synthetic humans can have other applications, such as the acquisition of a workforce that will be able to operate under the conditions and status of slavery.
This will have other moral, philosophical and practical implications as it will make it unnecessary to reproduce humans naturally.
That is, couples will no longer be needed to produce people who will continue the culture and history of Humanity.
The scenario of Ridley Scott’s legendary film “Blade Runner”, based on the equally legendary book of Philip Dick, “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”, in which in a near dystopian future the Humanity produces genetically advanced replicants, which are outwardly similar to humans. Their use on Earth is prohibited, and they are regulated exclusively for dangerous or medical work, in off world colonies.
Replicants who defy the ban and return to Earth are sought out and killed (“taken down”) by special police operatives known as “Blade Runners”.
All this will be done in an ideal and angelic world. But knowing who usually rules the planet we live in, we know that none of this will happen without benefit and profit.
And the biggest profit is always the creation of slaves for whom there will not even be a legal framework that they are indeed slaves.
