A new kind of BTO Factory

When the human race begins to lose its sentimental and emotional attachments, the bonds of human relationship will gradually disappear and replace by fads of fancy. Keeping pets and treating them as dear family members are catching on around the world. People choose to shower attention, money and tender loving care to animals than to other human beans. Family as an institution is losing its grip and breaking down in some societies. Instead of dogs and cats, human pets may become a bigger attraction in times to come. With the advancement in medical science and cloning, it is quite possible to determine exactly what a new child will be, or at least look a like in the future. BTO Factories could sprout up in the not too distance future to produce babies according to the demands of the owners. Babies To Order could become a flourishing commercial activity to add to the Bride to Order biz. People can walk into such a factory and order a Lady Gaga, Harry Porter, Rudh Khan, a Sammi Cheng or a Bruce Lee off the shelf. Or they could put in their own specifications of height, colour, sex etc etc. By the time we reach this stage of human race development, no one will bother about genetic purity or lineage. Anything that fancies will do. And there will be no angst of IVF mix-up kids too. And there would not be any affinity or attachment to race. All will belong to the human race and the human family. Maybe family will no longer exist in the human vocabulary.

Anything made by man is imperfect.

Yup, a BTO human being.

The face of Predator.
The body of Alien.
The heart of Dracula.
The brain of a bird.

Almost like some politicians.

I wouldn't want to dice with test tubes.

Nature is best.

Hehe.

I think BTO's will be a hit in certain parts of China where fetuses are cooked with herbs making apparently invigorating cuisine.

Gee, I'd better get busy and write up a business plan, so I can sell the idea to Temasek and help S'pore make money from this venture!

Though me thinks You worry too much, the possibility of perverse human behaviours as You described have happened and more perverts are coming in to create more monsters.
Having said that, me does believe nature conquers all in that perverts will self destroy amongst themselves before any ultimate damages are inflicted to the World.

Unfortunately patriot, I don't share your optimistic pessimism ;)

If the world didn't have "perverts", it would be a less "entertaining" place.

My simple definition for "perverted" behaviour is human beings acting like less conscious, less potentially "rational" creatures they evolved from: animals - meaning non human animals because we are animals too.

So when you behave like an "animal" you become a "pervert". Simple enough?

Perhaps too simple. Here's a better definition: perverted behaviour is behaviour motivated by animal instincts, modulated through processes of human creativity.

Human creativity is an awesome thing: it can turn even something "perverted" (animal behaviour: sex and food) into works of art.

And that Japs are damn good at that.

Culturally, they are reserved. But those of us who know call "bullshit" on that. The Japs have no problem expressing their deepest, darkest, twisted, most perverted sides of their character.

Even their cartoons have undertones of young girl sex in them.

What the fuck has China got?

Most say they are created by their Almighties(god/creationism), some say their ancestors were apes, monkey, orang utan, chimpanzee, macaw and gorilla, which species, they do not know. The Theory, of course scientific and comes under Evolution.

Me, much lost and without a single belief in any god, nor do i accept evolution at all. Would not want to debate about creationism or evolution as me does not understand these theories and does not feel the need to know.

There used to be this saying 'don't ask why the sky so high', reason is that there is no good answer. Me thinks there is no need to PRETEND that one needs to know, find an explanation or 'believe' there is an explanation.

Having said the above, one fact remains and that is, humans have proven to be more 'rationalising' than all other species. Not that the other species do not 'think', they do and react to circumstances too. But, humans do more, they scheme, they produce artificial contraptions, they corrupt themselves with greeds and last but not least, they corrupt themselves with pervert behaviours and acts that other species are incapable of.

Yes, due to the many perverted behaviours of humans, the World becomes more colourful and exciting. However humans are funny, laws and traditional restrictions and curbs are also made by other fellowbeings to contain the perversions of some other beings, mainly mankind.

Me for one does not feel the need to teach how others should behave. BUT, me does feel that Laws and similar enactments are needed to counter and or punish acts that are not acceptable or condone by the society at large.

As You have rightly and FACTUALLY enunciated, even Governments, which are supposed to rule their countries for the good of everyone, including all others who share Earth, are as prone to corruptions of kinds and minds. What is there to stop pervert deeds?

Me says, please do whatever pleases You, just remember there are traditions and laws. And if not, the believers will let You know, someone else is waiting for your soul somewhere.

For me, i just live by not asking what i do not know or what i feel me will 'never' understand. Otherwise, me will find no meaning in existence chasing after non-self comprehensible matters.

Do enjoy your freedom if You have them and be healthy.

patriot,

I appreciate your thoughts being shared. we all have different "world views" -- which are of course neither right nor wrong as they are subjective.

However when we do cross the line between subjective and objective, any position we take is either correct or incorrect.

Which leads me to one point:

Evolution -- by natural selection is no longer a "theory", although the word is still used to describe it.

Ever since the molecular DNA evidence emerged, that led to an explosion of other streams of evidence. Evolution, by natural selection is now, a rock solid FACT.

However no one is "forced" to accept/ "believe" in facts of reality. That's the beauty of freedom: it is "ok" to be deluded, incorrect and in denial, because freedom allows you to choose your own consequences to your thoughts and actions.

Cheers!

Genealogy more convincing than evolution and creationism. At least one gets to identify with parents and ancestors of the same kind, not ape or imagined divinity.

You are confusing vaginas with breast...err I mean durians and jambus.

Identifying with something doesn't alter reality. Just because you "feel better" doesn't make you "right".

Genealogy deals with one species -- in the general case, humans, so it can't be compared to evolution which deals with how species evolved.

Also what do you mean by "evolution". The only evolution theory which is now ESTABLISHED FACT is evolution by natural selection -- aka "Darwinism".

There is no escaping the FACT that we are primates. We share 98% of chimpanzee's the genetic code -- our closest biological "cousins".

That being said, not too many chrisitans are willing to admit that jesus too must be some kind of monkey.

Anyway, happy Sunday, enjoy it with your family -- whatever your species

"Genealogy deals with one species". Unquote.
Absolutely, one species that will not evolve into another.
If man came from chimpanzee, what will come after man ? Flying man ?
Lol.

Matilah_Singapura said...

You are really showing your ignorance. ;)

Where did I say man came from chimps?

Man and chimps share a common ancestor. Obviously you don't understand evolution by natural selection, so I think the best thing for you is to invent your own theory, and enjoy yourself :-))
