Helen Thomson, for New Scientist:
As with many unprecedented procedures, there may also be concerns about a slippery slope. In this case, it would be whether this would eventually lead to people swapping bodies for cosmetic reasons. However, Scripko – who doesn’t believe the surgery will ever happen – doesn’t think this applies here. “If a head transplant were ever to take place, it would be very rare.”
I think that’s actually a bit shortsighted. As soon as something becomes possible, it also becomes probable.
