Lab grown meat already exists. The same processes could easily make human meat without harming the human.

I’m fairly certain this will at some point lead to a social media fad of people trying, well, people. It seems like every possible stupid action has already been turned into one at this point https://eu.app.com/story/news/world/2024/03/07/what-is-tiktok-chroming-trend/72879475007/

Onlyfans creators already sell stuff like toenail clippings and bathwater https://kotaku.com/belle-delphine-onlyfans-paypal-pornhub-bath-water-1851491916

Wouldn’t be difficult to imagine people buying meat made of their favourite creator. What they do with it is between them and their god.

    Maybe someone who understands science way better than me can answer this, but would it be possible to grow a whole human body using the meat growing process? If so, you could buy a sex doll copy of your favourite celebrity.

      Currently not. Lab grown meat is a more or less homogeneous mass of muscle fiber. A few years ago we could only make what is essentially minced meat, now we’re getting closer to entire steaks. Still far away from growing specific muscle groups, organs, bones and skin.

        I mean i theory we can clone mammals, the problem is it would take a long while for your “buddy” to grow up to a usable size

          The problem with cloning would also be that a clone of a human is a human with all rights and limitations, the “buddy” would be a slave.

              Performing a lobotomy to a human sounds highly illegal in itself, but as far as I know are lobotomized humans still humans with all human rights.

                Well, that’s fair enough, but i think we already abandoned legality of the whole operation at the “growing entire human body” part

                    The problem with a lifeless body is it will quickly decompose, so it has to have basic functions like breathing and blood pumping

          BONK

          (You are aware that lab-grown meat is still meat and not an independent organism, right? It’s essentially dead and would rot within hours if kept at room temperature)

            Yea. Freeze it, thaw it, microwave it, “use” it, dispose of it.

            I’m not actually planning on doing any of that, just talking about what is and isn’t theoretically possible.
