The big question is how far would science be able to create a synthetic Human?

NASA had recently applauded the 1982 science fiction movie ‘Blade Runner’ by Ridley Scott stating that it has a very convincing picture of the future of Los Angeles. It depicted a future where Humans and Robots that looked like humans lived side by side. This the agency has cited to be scientifically, “realistic”. Now with realise of Blade Runner 2049, science seems to be reaching to the pinnacle of technological developments.

The sequel depicts the most realistic human like robots with a mess of electronics underneath. The fact is developments in technology and bioengineering are bringing us closer to this in reality with some breakthroughs being closer than we might think. Earlier this year an Italian scientist along with a team of Chinese researchers had declared to have successfully transplanted the head of a rat into another rat’s body. Scientists are also working on the possibility of brain transplant in humans.

Scientists have been successful in generating human organs like heart, brain, kidney, bowel tissue etc. using stem cells in lab. There have also been a lot of developments in making synthetic organs out of machine parts rather than human tissue. Artificial hearts are being used in heart failures and cardiopulmonary bypass machines are providing the functions of the heart and lungs both for a few hours at a time.

Can these Replicates be more human than humans? Science has gone further ahead in terms of eyesight. Bionic eyes are a reality today. Robert Greenberg, CEO of Second Sight in 2010 brought a retinal prosthesis to market making it viable for sightless patients to see. They actually mimic the function of the retina by using retinal implant connected to a mini video camera to convert images into electrical impulses that in turn activates other retinal cells which then carries the signal back to the brain.

So developments are continuous in process of making a human robot. But here the ultimate question arises. Can they have consciousness which the movie depicts? Only future would tell us. To prevent a possible war between species, K is secretly tasked with finding the object and destroying all evidence related to it, leading to discover that the object bears a connection to missing blade runner Rick Deckard.

    I have to show appreciation to the writer for rescuing me from this condition. Just after looking out throughout the the web and seeing ways which were not powerful, I assumed my life was over. Living without the presence of approaches to the difficulties you’ve resolved by means of your website is a serious case, and the ones which could have in a wrong way affected my career if I had not noticed your web blog. Your personal natural talent and kindness in controlling the whole thing was invaluable. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a point like this. It’s possible to now look forward to my future. Thank you very much for this expert and effective help. I will not think twice to recommend your blog to any individual who will need counselling on this problem.
