Human head transplant just two years away, surgeon claims - CNET

Quote:
Since that time, experimentation with head transplants has been minimal, but Dr Canavero believes that our knowledge of surgery techniques and how the human body works has caught up. "I think we are now at a point when the technical aspects are all feasible," he told New Scientist.

We accept these things because we fear death. Humans always fear the unknown. Yet ancient scriptures tell us not to fear death, but we don't listen. And as a result of our failure to listen and accept things on faith, we are a society that looks to head transplants as an alternative. No thanks. I'll take death over someone's head.

will they have to put the new head back in the same place or could it go on the side where it could be used to prop up an arm or be protected from the rain?
