Stem cell Horror

Stem cell research is a double edged sword. On one hand, the potential benefits to science, humanity and health are immense, and on the other hand it can be plagued with ethical and moral dilemmas involving life, cells, tissue and some may say – playing God.

Scientists in Britain are developing a technique to cultivate live tissue from the stem cells in dead embryos. This tends to escape any moral dilemma as the cells are no longer dividing and are considered dead. Dead tissue, brought to life. Nothing wrong there! I don’t have to explain much to illustrate where this is going.

Tissue Regeneration.

Setting aside all ethical and moral dilemmas about cultivating and developing stem cells and where they are harvested, stem cell research will progress and it will yield strange new results to us. There are certain things that should be brought up when considering a futurist look at stem cells. Specifically, tissue regeneration and reanimation. It is not so far fetched to consider – stem cells bear the unique property of being able to form into any cell the body needs, liver, heart, arm, brain. Perhaps in twenty to fifty years, we will have reached the point where stem cell therapy will allow quadriplegics to walk and the dismembered to grow new limbs. This is fantastic. And terrifying.

From the Max Planck Institutes:
“the possibility of regenerating the complex structures of entire organs, such as the kidneys for example, is already conceivable, although a comprehensive understanding of the organogenesis is necessary”.

Activating stem cells to produce or grow new tissue, organs and limbs is a scary and unknown frontier for biotechnology, especially since technicians are reanimating them to begin with. Certain questions are brought to mind:

  • How will developing tissues be controlled?
  • Is there a limit on what will be grown or developed?
  • How large a tissue sample can be reanimated?
  • Will reanimated tissue samples take on the characteristics of HeLa cells?
  • Can stem cells grow in a dormant host?
  • Will stem cells be beneficial in reanimating dead brains?

Even our scientists and government are in on the action. DARPA has a $7.6 million grant to focus on tissue and limb regeneration. Hydra Biosciences is working on a drug to target regeneration of the heart – without using stem cells.

Tissue Reanimation.

Naturally, this is all speculation from a futurist, but things that must be considered. Reanimation research is shaky ground, though progress is being made. While British scientist sort out the problematic origins of stem cell cloning, scientists in Germany are truthfully working on reanimation research – and are having success restoring dead brain functions.

Reanimation research at the Max Planck Institutes focuses on restoring functionality to a dying brain after cardiac arrest and reanimating the neural processes. The brain poses a certain problem in reanimating an entire organism, as all other organs and life are tied to the functioning of the brain. Nerve clusters and neurological activities have been restored after an hour of death, but complete reanimation fails as the brain is overwhelmingly affected by cardiac arrest.

Reanimating the 1918 flu pandemic virus seems rather precarious – especially since no one has an immunity anymore. The virus could mutate, react violently with current medicines and turn into a resistant super strain, or perhaps just be itself and kill us all like it used to.

Not to sound like the bearer of bad news, but left unchecked, research into reanimating tissue, organisms and organs could have disastrous consequences. When radiation was first discovered, it killed its finders.

    this information is untrue i can confirm its uncofidentiality through through the armed forces .

  • 2 Thomas Weaver Nov 27, 2007 at 7:32 pm

    how can you prove this?

  • 3 general stanford Nov 27, 2007 at 7:34 pm

    The Division I am with will prove this is untrue all in due time.

  • 4 Thomas Weaver Nov 27, 2007 at 7:34 pm

    and what division is that?

  • 5 general stanford Nov 27, 2007 at 7:35 pm

    you are not authorized to know that information.

  • 6 Thomas Weaver Nov 27, 2007 at 7:35 pm

    why not?

  • 7 general stanford Nov 27, 2007 at 7:36 pm

    The Division I am with does not allow someone of your standing to know such information.

  • 8 bryan storm Nov 27, 2007 at 7:36 pm

    do you mean like walking flesh eating zombies?

  • 9 general stanford Nov 27, 2007 at 7:39 pm

    to everyone viewing this page this information is not true it is based on unknown and false information. there is no threat of zombies or anything else of that matter. furthermore this page will be under investigation from its sources.

    Fantastic, but I’m reporting objective information here pulled from publicly available sources, cited at the end of the article. I draw no conclusions, only speculation.

    The kind of paranoid nervous statements you make Gen. Stanford only serve to act as backbone for my presumptions. Thanks for letting us know.

  • 11 general stanford Nov 27, 2007 at 11:03 pm

    well sam i would like to know where you are getting these so called sources.

  • 12 general stanford Nov 27, 2007 at 11:10 pm

    this is a urgent matter that must be dealt with immediately. please contact me at my website listed above. I repeat this is an urgent matter sam i have information you may want to see.

    please contact me at my email

    yhis general stanford sounds like hes full of crap

  • 14 Tim Dec 10, 2008 at 6:36 pm

    I like how Stanfords signature “evolves.” Adds credibility to his NSA/Military stature. Pretty awesome how he’s spent alot of tax payers time jerkin his dick at work surfing Zombie web sites.

    ;) what the hell am i talkin about… i’m jerkin my dick surfing zombie sites at work too… STILL!!

  • 15 Pvt Unknown Dec 10, 2008 at 9:19 pm

    lol well General Stanford, I for one being enlisted soldier and swore to defend the constition (the people of the United States of America) would like you to ask you a simple question…

    If you are such a noble man, explain to me why a superior officer such your self, isnt using his AKO account? why use your personal account where other “big fish” can track you down and put you on trial for Treason?

    You may “think” you have authority here, but as a military police officer myself, i would have no other choice then to turn you in to the authorites at the DoD here in Columbus Ohio. along with speaking to my leutent general on the matters for a possible breach of security, last time i checked when i got out of AIT thats a capitol crime and is punishable by death.

    im pretty sure the FBI is already investigateing you as we speak, after all this site has been viewed and redemed “safe for national security” if it wasnt then they would have shut the site down several days or weeks after being activated.

    well fine civilian Stanford, i here by charge you of the crime of breaching security on sensitive matters on Reanimation of cadavers. policy code of USMCJ code 2339.60 capital offencive crimes subsection B-9901 and here by demote you under my powers of a military police officer badge number 299-303-111 and i hold you to justice for the next JAG hearing.

    you have the right to remain silent
    anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of military justice
    you have a right to a military or a civilian lawyer or a military civil account officer
    if you do not have one the offices of JAG will support you one.
    You are innocent until proven guilty.

    Have a pleasent evening!

    PVT Unkown,

  • 16 Pvt Unknown Dec 10, 2008 at 9:45 pm

    well anyway… moving on from someone who insults the military, and myself, id like to share a lovely little game called Left for dead,

    the whole game is made into four scenarios and is made like a movie, each scenario is a “mini movie act” which leaves our 4 survivors either on a roof top of a apartment building, a greenhouse near a airport, in the woods near a farm, and a turnpike.

    each of these 4 scenarios is cut into 3-4 acts, first one is the begening, which you get into a safe house, the second, you build up on suspense, and another safe house and continues until you get twards the end where the finele’ and eventually your possible escape, will you? or will you die and join the heard? that my friend i will leave you to find out if your planning on buying it,

    if you wish for more, and Sam allows, id be happy to give the full layout of the game,

    and if you all wish for some hints, tips, secrets of survivng the game, or if your intrested in the real deal of surviving the possible zombie filled apocolypse, id be happy to share some life saving tips and possible even recomend a book thats great on survival tasks, even in nuclear, biological, and chemical enviroments, legal to own, and can be found in most libraries and bookshops.

  • 17 Alec0519 Jan 15, 2009 at 12:06 am

    pvt unknown i read what you wrote about a book “legal to own” does that mean there are books on the subject that are illegal to own, just speculation. :)

  • 18 Opertion Genesis Jul 5, 2009 at 9:26 pm

    Well, upon the whole discussion of the reanimation of cadavers. I know about the whole protecting the national security and public safety of US Residents, if not world wide. On this topic, I sort of feel it is similar to that of a Resident Evil scenario. But in a way that I’m hearing, it sounds like the stem cell research is merely being used for the betterment for mankind. Although we seem to be dabbling in affairs which seem to be that of a higher priority than our own.

    Is there already a Bioterrorism unit, if so it’s a good plan, idea, etc. But my main question is, have Biotechnology, or the recreational sciences, and the study in that or of that nature, lead into the birth of Bioweaponry?

    Although under government protection, loads of things are kept under wraps but, are also unavailable from being discussed, and whatnot.

    I mean, if possible, wait, nvm…

  • 19 Colonel Sanders Jul 14, 2009 at 9:23 am

    I would like to add that Sgt. Landschoot from Quincy, Massachusetts on Jefferson Ave. has a strong hold with plenty of guns and ammunition. The place is called the bunker. To get ahold of this safe house please contact us via email “mcsinister101@yahoo.com” All we ask is that you bring food and anything useful with you.

  • 20 PFC Unknown Jul 16, 2009 at 5:01 pm

    well operation genesis, the government has tons and tons of stuff underwraps, things that even i wont know that exhist, i would imagin the great country of America and the other super powers like the USSR or Russia wich ever one they liked to be called… they have experimented on some kind of bioweapons and the reanimation of cadavers, soul purpose would be to revive dead soldiers to continue fighting even though they were already dead, and (or) to build a better medical services for both military and civilian hospitals and for the question would they have a unit like the S.T.A.R.S unit (if i am guessing correctly) they are units like that, that do exhist, but not for the containment of undead creatures, much like the local civilian SWAT teams. to deal with and to eliminate hostile groups, deal with hostage situations of such but i can imagin they can be retrained in a short time to deal with such things like zombies, if needed to be.

    and for your question about does bioweaponry exhist? the answer for that is yes, the USSR/Russia has experimented with bioweapons, but was deamed in-humane, and also animal cruel, wich in my opinion drove the practice underground with “rouge” scientist groups linked with government sponsership. but will we ever know about it directly from the government? nope, just because of the fact it isnt the civilians call to do so,

  • 21 Orange glint Jan 1, 2010 at 12:11 am

    They do have pepole kinda like stars call s.e.r.t. Dont know what it stands for but they are like minutemen/swat/natl guard type guys

  • 22 mike Jan 2, 2010 at 1:15 am

    we have a s.o.r.t team and a d.c.t team ( special operations response team, and desturbance control team)
    mostly riot control

  • 23 logan Jan 3, 2010 at 8:00 am

    I just realized that the first couple of posts with General and Thomas were all the same person.

  • 24 PFC Unknown Feb 4, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    two orange- the S.E.R.T is like stars, (Speacial Emergency Response Team) along with all of the other paramilitary units (mainly in L.E.) but not many are trained for mass deployment against Zeds, (which they can be trained on the fly if needed be) but are mainly there for when the cops need to call for 911, many states have them as well as countries, but there main use are for Anti-terror Ops, or Anti-Biological Terror Response (when we had a scare of antherax attacks) so on so forth,

    and yeah who ever that guy was playing as a gen. was a bit of a pain, (personally i hate little punks pretending to be in the armed forces, i take it as them mocking us) but hes gone and probably sitting in his closet afraid to come out for fear the SWAT team might bust through his window and door lol

  • 25 silent wolf aguayo Feb 13, 2010 at 12:13 am

    SAM DONT TELL GENERAL ANYTHING. HE COULD BE IN ON IT ALL. HE COULD BE SOMEONE THAT IS WORKING ON SUCH A PROJECT AND TRYING TO COVER IT UP.

  • 26 josho123 Feb 16, 2010 at 4:24 pm

    So im guessing PFC Unknown you probabally have a few things that you cant tell us?

  • 27 kiba Apr 17, 2011 at 6:50 pm

    well i would like to say 1 thing the research is true i am under obligation to never use my true identity so i change my name daily…… -_- do not ask me why 4 it is……none of your concern pvt. i believe the gen. is a fake so please leave the poor fool be…….that is all

  • 28 deadman wonderland Jul 19, 2011 at 8:12 pm

    I love left for dead!!! wish i had an xbox though..lol..cool info on this website..

  • 29 phantom Dec 24, 2011 at 8:44 pm

    “general” stanford i work on this and it is real only a few years ago lasers were considered an impossibility that is now common this is basically the thing you also put through twice in a row in the sentence

  • 30 phantom Dec 26, 2011 at 9:55 pm

    also they do not act like zombies if they were reanimated there i.q. might have taken a dip but they have emotion (unless they were not revived in six hours or less). p.s. it’s in Russia not England.

  • 31 phantom Dec 26, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    six hours or more*

  • 32 Joe Emmons Jul 14, 2012 at 9:17 pm

    I for one am glad i read this artical, I believe zombies are real or real at one point and it’s being hidden from us but it’s my opinion not a fact I’m trying to state.

  • 33 Unknown Sep 23, 2012 at 2:22 pm
