Re: “Can you keep a brain alive in a jar?” | Science+Technology | October 5

Hello World,

Daniel Lametti is onto something…. A severed brain could fair well in the nooks and crannies of space, all the spots where friendly extraterrestrials might be loitering. We could shoot brains out into the universe like bullets in Schwarzenegger’s classic, Commando, and hope for some strange green brains in jars to be fired back.

Of course, we’d have to do some testing first, to make sure all the gadgets are in order…. I wonder if the McGill pro-life group would volunteer to have their brains removed and experimented on? We might find the malfunctions responsible for recent events….

With eyes and brain pointed at the stars,
