How do you think you would you feel if you found out you were spliced from human and animal dna?
Fictional question, don't what people freaking out on me, lol.
What do you think you feel if at the age of 40 you found evidence that your were a by-product of a military experiment?
I suppose it would depend on the animal. It wouldn't be so bad to be part hawk or tiger or something like that, but I sure wouldn't want to be part skunk or naked mole rat. That would suck.
I wouldn't have a problem with it so long as I lead a functional life. Most of our DNA is shared with other animals anyway. Having served in the military, I just hope they didn't mess up too bad: military doctors are not usually the cream of the proverbial crop.
You got me cracking up. (FYI - my bro a mil doc.) But no worries grew up mil so I know where you are coming from. giggles re: leading a functional life, what if you thought you were leading a functional life and others didn't how would u feel?
"What if you thought you were leading a functional life and others didn't? " Maybe this is where the degree of humanity comes in? (btw, love your question! I'm an anthropologist.)
Kind of a loaded question, but I guess it depends on how much animal DNA. If the person in question appears normal-looking and functioning like a regular human being, only with certain modifications done that benefit him/her such as speed, smell, hearing, than maybe its ok,and should not matter, however, if the character is treaty as if a lower-class citizen, looks outwardly different to most people or military-owned, a human experiment, and has no real human rights under the law, than this person could suffer as a slave or used as humanoid weapon with animal-like prowess.
It would explain a lot. I would feel relieved, and immediately fire off emails and letters to family members, past girlfriends, old college professors and former employers explaining the situation with the hope that any and all past actions would be cleared by virtue of the new evidence of my physical makeup.
Secondly, I would buy a dozen t-shirts proclaiming myself a military experiment and wear them at all times, thereby giving myself free reign to act however I see fit in public. When people see me sleeping on the floor at the mall or bathing in a public fountain they'll just say, "Bless his heart, he's one of those military experiments" instead of calling the cops like they usually do.
Love the question! :-) I don't think I'd be too upset. Who knows, maybe my sense of smell would be as keen a wolf. Or, perhaps I could see like an eagle or hawk -- and fly, too! Maybe I could breathe like a whale, or be a 'snowbird' fish, and get to go south for winter, and north for summer, like salmon!
But what if it changed the core of what a human is? But , what IS that? We can plan, talk, love, hate --- hmm ... wild animals exhibit that, too, though their 'speech' is not like our's . Yet who are we to say that their means of communication does not 'say' far more than our gargly sounds? It could be far more more descriptive, taking in those things like extreme visions, smells, vibrations even! They already share, exhibit affection and concern; they fight and use tools, too.
We humans are animals, after all. Did you learn the mnemonic in school: Kings Play Chess On Fine Green Sand? K P C O F G S. Our classical taxonomy is - K for Kingdom Animalia,;P for Phylum Chordata (we have a spinal cord, basically); C for Class Mammalia; O for Order: Primates (yes, like gorillas, chimps too); F for Family: Homindae; G is for Genus: Homo ; and S for Species: Sapiens.
Actually, WE are Homo Sapiens sapiens, a sub-species of Sapiens. The other is Homo Sapiens idaltu ("elder"), the first known contemporary human. They're about 160,000 years older. This great discovery was in Ethiopia in 1997, and rocked the anthro world! It took the man who discovered the remains,
But we're already both ANIMAL and HUMAN so I couldn't be too upset! :-) We're still Biota of Earth, in the Domain Eukarya.
It would explain so much. I get told on a regular basis I act very cat-like - I like to curl up on soft warm things (like other people's laps), I love naps, I tend to eat a lot and then not eat for a while. I tend to enjoy climbing things and being by myself. Hence, if I turned out to be some splicing of a leopard and human, it would make total sense.
Plus, leopard? I would be ecstatic. Especially if said splicing eventually led to 'shapeshifters'. If there was a treatment to be able to have a secondary form, I'd be the first person to go for it.
However, it'd be something that I feel people should have the right to choose whether they want it or not. Finding out suddenly that you aren't who you thought you are, and it wasn't anything by your decisions, or that you had a choice? That probably would be terrifying to most people, and would probably end up in some high-class lawsuits, as everyone likes to sue everyone else in this place in time. Personally, I do not think it is legally or scientifically justified to use humans like that - I do not like science being played with to make a single person/organization 'God'.
I'd hope I was part cat! Maybe I am related to my best companion:)
