In fact when you combine stem cell technology with the technology known as tissue engineering you can actually grow up entire organs, so as you suggest that sometime in the future you get in an auto accident and lose your kidney, we’d simply take a few skin cells and grow you up a new kidney. In fact this has already been done.
More Robert Lanza quotes :
Amazingly when you add life and consciousness to the equation you can actually explain some of the biggest puzzles of science.Robert Lanza
Our science fails to recognize those special properties of life that make it fundamental to material reality. This view of the world - biocentrism - revolves around the way a subjective experience, which we call consciousness, relates to a physical process. It is a vast mystery and one that I have pursued my entire life.Robert Lanza
Our thoughts have an order, not of themselves, but because the mind generates the spatio-temporal relationships involved in every experience.Robert Lanza
