On the prospect of a true Jurassic Park, Elon Musk’s business colleague said, “Super exotic unique species.”
A REAL-LIFE EXAMPLE According to Elon Musk’s business partner, “years of breeding and engineering to get ultra exotic unique species” may be used to create Jurassic Park.
Max Hodak and Elon Musk co-founded Neuralink, a firm that is creating a wireless brain-machine interface. Scientists hope that their breakthroughs will help patients with neurological disorders by allowing them to manage phones and computers remotely – using only their wits.
On Twitter, Mr Hodak promoted the notion of the world’s first dinosaur park, albeit it is unclear who is referred to as “We.”
Neuralink has inserted a chip into the brains of a pig and a monkey, but has made no comments about the concept of animal cloning, implying that he is referring to humanity as a whole.
“We could certainly build Jurassic Park if we wanted to,” the biomedical engineer wrote.
“They wouldn’t be genetically true dinosaurs.
“It could take up to 15 years of breeding and engineering to produce hyper exotic unique species.”
In response to Mr Hodak, one user, who claims to have a Ph.D. in biochemistry and molecular genetics, wrote: “Ancient DNA, splicing of genes into extinct and modern species. To be sure, it’s doable, but there are significant ethical hurdles to overcome.”
“We are in the midst of a global pandemic due to a novel coronavirus,” claimed another.
“I don’t think anyone wants to consider creating entirely new species.
“I love dinosaurs, but let’s leave the Jurassic Park concept to theme parks and virtual reality. We shouldn’t do anything just because we can…”
“There’s actually a whole movie series on why this is a poor idea…” noted another person.
In the 1993 film Jurassic Park, entrepreneur John Hammond establishes a wildlife park off the Costa Rican coast using cloned dinosaurs.
However, havoc ensues when the park’s electrified fences are turned off, allowing the monsters to flee.
Resurrecting dinosaurs, according to CNet science editor Jackson Ryan, is “very much impossible.”
“However, the science of resurrecting dinosaurs isn’t as sound as Hodak makes it appear,” he remarked.
“In the next 15 years, even humans would have a hard time creating a Jurassic Park.
“First and foremost, we’ll need some DNA from prehistoric tyrants.
“Unlike in Jurassic Park, where mosquito DNA is extracted from amber and joined with frog DNA, that information has completely decayed over millions of years.”Brinkwire Summary News”.
