I cant wait for genetics research to proceed to the appropriate level. So long as its all real (IE, it makes you someting genetically distinct from humanity), I wont hesitate, whatever it takes to get there. I think we need something like this to happen. We've evolved as a society for far too long thinking that humanity is somehow the 'best' possible thing there could be. Since FTL travel is way more improbable than genetic research, I'll hold out for us to change ourselves long before we encounter alien species that are not like us.

You can accuatly get fur as well..

The same technique they use to make fur on creatures with prostetics..

It would take ages, And you could probably even do it to yourself...

With the right needle

All they do is insert hair after hair after with a bit of glue on it to keep it in....Might be lots of little painful pricks but it can be done.. and if you didnt want to do it yourself you would have to pay someone heaps..

and you can already get face resonstructions and stuff...

So it can already be done.. Its just the accuatully getting it done and paying for it...

Maybe . . . .

I think that it could happen, though, what keeps popping into my mind is the idea about the mentaility that could possibly develop. That it'd generally be treated as a 'fad,' and that it could become a hip thing to do for a while, but then lose its popularity the way huge and baggy jeans did after the late '90s.

As it is recently, we tend to loose interest in things pretty rapidly as a society in general. Hell, in the ninties, we went through more style changes then I could possibly recall, and we definately couldn't settle on anything for any real length of time.

Of course, all those who perminantly altered themselves would then have to deal with the fact that they could possibly find themselves out-of-date within a considerably short time.

That's a scary thought, and if we did start seeing things like massive reconstruction like described in this thread, to avoid becoming just another victim of the fad bug, we'd have to steer clear of jumping in, ourselves, until we're pretty much certain that it's not leaving anytime soon.

Though, the simple fact that the majority would be hesitant would possibly be the very thing that makes it become just a passing fad.

See the catch 22?

Personally, I don't think that I'd be all too eager to jump on it myself, if for only for that reason . . . aside the fact that we're not talking about being our characters and acutally wanting to simply become something physically different.

This topic isn't like the other thread where we were asked if we'd like to be our fantasy 'characters' if given the chance--something that I'd be more willing to be apart of. This question takes everything to a different level in which, if the possibility arose, would we literally reconfigure our bodies in a medical sense--aside from all fantasy and the like.




Yeah, as a matter of fact I DO own the road . . . .

The boundries of morals in technology always have and always will be ignored, so why not take advantage of a few things? Provided I myself wouldn't go through it, I'd support the practice.

I tend to be more worried about the chemicals we consume each day than genetics. One thing that I'm hugely against on genetics though: patenting genes. I could understand perhaps the patenting of the manufacturing proccess, but the byproduct: genes? No. No way at all.

I voted yes, because I am a strong supporter of genetic research, and in favor of genetic engineering and cloning. Having said that, I don't think that what we will eventually see in this vein will be what everyone would typically expect.

I think we'll see enhancements on a genetic level with regards to speed, agility, eyesight & hearing, etc., drawn from animal genes and worked as a mutation, up to and including cosmetic alterations such as changing the structure of the human ear to more match animals (pointed ear cup shape, for example), rather than a true engineered hybridization (which is probably not possible even thru future science).

Would I want such alterations? Certainly!

And I can agree with the rest of your statement aswell. It will be made illegal (if not banned completely).

I voted 'maybe' because I know that there was one year during the fall where some people were actually getting tails sewn on their bottoms or snake-shaped tongues and such. By real doctors, no less.

So, although you wouldn't be able to wag the tail without intense stem cell research, yes. It would be possible.

However, if the Bush administration ever leaves the office, stem cell research could become better. We could finally cure alzheimers and cancer, and we could create new body parts without having to take old ones, and, in this, would probably eliminate the possibility of the body rejecting it, and we could even create new ears, feet, hands, and tails for those who wish to truly become furry (and are insanely rich).

But.. that's just what I believe. ^_^

Actually they didn't.

OK they did. Kinda.
What they did is they made an ear shaped mould out of some sort of organic matrix, and grafted artificial skin cells onto it, which than to grew in the shape of said ear, while the mould degraded away underneath. At least I think that's how it works. It's what they do with burns victims.

It's still creepy.

Anyway, they could probably do it in a few decades.

Whether they'll be allowed to is another matter.

I voted, yes but I'll probably be dead when it happens. With the advancements of tecnology, it'll probably be genetic or bioengineered.

The biggers problem with the Bioengineering bit isn't a lack of ability,
(They grew an ear on a rat, why not a tail on a person)
But that it would be illegal,  Geneticly (altered) humans is a verry touchy subject.

I think a determined Scientist would take sutch a procedure to a third world country and offer his services there.  Now that would attrack real opertunities.

I said yes, but I'll probably be dead by then. I have almost no faith in medical science, but I think people will learn to successfully screw with genetics one day and it could very well be a reality.

I voted Maybe, if you're just talking about massive reconstructive surgery to appear like something then, yes. But if you were thinking about surgery on a massive scale (as in completley changing your physiology, then I'd be more leaneing from no to you'll be a fossil then. Genetics is a very fun subject if you've ever studied it (It's always been one of my hobbies to research) and at it's current state of progression we could be looking at some very large leaps in the near future (not huge, the thought of reconstructing all your DNA sequences seems almost out of reach to me), but I wouldn't get your hopes up lol. Since you also have to deal with "morality" issues of people who always seem to oppose it. But hey I like how James Watson put it "If we don't play god, who will?" '<img'>
Would be cool if they had the ability now though '<img'>

*laughs*  Right, how much is plastic surgery these days?  Imagine how much more work will have to be done (wiring in the tail, or wings, or allowing vocalizations).  I don't think it will be available to anyone poorer than Bill Gates.

perhaps in the future there will be easier to obtain materials so cheaper operations?

When these transformation topics come up I always seem to think of that morphs episode from Batman Beyond or the Island of Dr. Moreau.

Part of me wants to say yes, it'll be possible because it's going to benefit somebody and of course make somebody else rich along the way. But then there's the social and moral implications, not to mention the level of experimentation that will be involved before the procedure (assuming it's ever going to happen) is made perfect. And what of laws? You'll bet it'll be illegal in the states and numerous other first or second world countries probably. So people wanting to have an anthro operation will have to go to some other remote region of the world. Think Dr. Kevorkian...*shudder*

This funny story always makes me think of the consequences such a procedure might have. ':shock:'

Anyway, this article mentions that there is at least one person out there working on it. But I'm still skeptical.

I answered no, because all kinds of operations and genetic engineerings sounds bad.
