Regenerating my lazy Pancreas
Since the dawn of time, we as human beings have understood the frail and limited nature of our biological bodies. It is one of the primordial forces that pushes us to be better than our limitations.
Natural Selection, Darwin Calls it. Darwin’s general theory presumes the development of life from non-life and stresses a purely naturalistic (undirected) “descent with modification”. That is, complex creatures evolve from more simplistic ancestors naturally over time. In a nutshell, as random genetic mutations occur within an organism’s genetic code, the beneficial mutations are preserved because they aid survival — a process known as “natural selection.”
These beneficial mutations are passed on to the next generation. Over time, beneficial mutations accumulate and the result is an entirely different organism (not just a variation of the original, but an entirely different creature).
Do you see where am going with this?
Or are you asking yourself why am suddenly preaching Darwinism to you?
Blame it on a hyperactive Imagination and today’s topic for Diabetes Blog Week which asked what my Fantasy Diabetes device would be?
Well maybe they had no idea just how demented my imagination was…poor souls.
But back to Darwin.
If a blind man naturally has all his other senses heightened to compensate for his lack of vision then according to Darwin If blindness was hereditary then a few generations removed we would have his grandchildren develop Human Echolocation capabilities as advanced as the Microbat’s.
So Let’s take this argument a step further, While Darwin’s theories focused on Natural Selection, today’s Instant society
Figured we are too advanced to wait a couple of generations for what we needed so started the great cloning debate.
Show me someone who doesn’t believe that human cloning is going to be a part of our society before the end of this generation and I will show you someone who is oblivious of everything around them.
The only Reason they are no visible clones walking around us today is because of 2 things none of which has anything to do with the scientific technology.
1. The Moral ambiguity and 2. Religion.
Yet have we not heard horror stories of those willing to push their Immorality and religious beliefs to the side in the name of science. It is just a matter of time my friends.
But Back to my lazy Pancreas and my Fantasy Device.
The Cloning technology aside from the previous arguments has its roots based on the Human Stem Cells which in by themselves have advantages when correctly.
I have spent a great deal of time on the subject to continue arguing on the stem cell debate. I would suffice to say that we all have our own differing opinions on the matter.
What I am talking about today is a rather unique procedure called the Regeneration Technology.
It is a The technique of growing organs which involves making a glass mock-up of the diseased body part and then coating it in a new type of polymer — a rubbery type substance developed in this lab. The plastic has microscopic pores, onto which stem cells taken from the patient can attach and grow.
The plastic acts as a scaffolding of sorts around which the patient’s own cells can then regrow and remodel themselves into a new body part.
And there you have it, a brand spanking new Pancreas to replace this Lazy one.
