    Is he going too far, or is this necessary for the ultimate upsides if it is indeed successful?

    Best scenario: lives for a month and dies. We advance science and get better.
    Worst scenario: Dies on table.

    He is going to pass anyway, might as well do something awesome.

    The actual idea of it is not anymore unethical than any other medical transplant.

    What is extremely questionable is that science really doesn't have the basic understanding of human spinal regeneration or repair and this quack seemingly is going off the reservation with a mad science expirement. It's a glorified black market organ operation (hence why it's happening in China) and is going against the recommendation of every scientist and dr who would love to see this work but question every aspect of this guy's approach.

    We'll be able to 3d print bodies in our lifetimes. So, it's probably good for everyone to get this medical procedure working.

    I think not allowing a bit of mad science is an unfortunate part of modern life. Fucking around with shit on the edge of understanding seems to have been pretty much the norm for the 19th and early 20th centuries, and netted us some pretty huge advances. The biggest issue I see with the science of the past was the lack of informed consent.

    If a guy thinks he can chop a head off and glue it to another body and make it work, I say find a head and find a body who want to be glued together and let's see where this goes. Probably no where, lets be real about this it isn't gonna work. I'm still down to let it happen.

    I think this should be called a body transplant.

    I think this procedure might have already been done on some of the posters over in the Russia thread

    Science fiction as of now.

    And how does replacing your body make you immortal? How do you stop brain aging and neurodegeneration?

    The thought of this sounds absolutely disgusting.
    He has to sever the head of a live human being while they remain unconscious, and then attach it to another questionable body?

    The doctor sounds like a real life Victor Frankenstein to me.

    Can we put the head of Demetrious Johnson on a normal body and have him fight Jon Jones? I've got questions and stuff.
