Scientists Create Animals That are Part-Human – stem cell experiments leading to genetic mixing of species

Source: MSNBC, April 29, 2005

Sheep that have partially human livers, hearts, brains and other organs are shown here at the University of Nevada, in Sparks, Nev., on April 27.

RENO, Nev. — On a farm about six miles outside this gambling town, Jason Chamberlain looks over a flock of about 50 smelly sheep, many of them possessing partially human livers, hearts, brains and other organs.

The University of Nevada-Reno researcher talks matter-of-factly about his plans to euthanize one of the pregnant sheep in a nearby lab. He can’t wait to examine the effects of the human cells he had injected into the fetus’ brain about two months ago.

“It’s mice on a large scale,” Chamberlain says with a shrug.

As strange as his work may sound, it falls firmly within the new ethics guidelines the influential National Academies issued this past week for stem cell research.

In fact, the Academies’ report endorses research that co-mingles human and animal tissue as vital to ensuring that experimental drugs and new tissue replacement therapies are safe for people.

Doctors have transplanted pig valves into human hearts for years, and scientists have injected human cells into lab animals for even longer.

Biological mixing of species
But the biological co-mingling of animal and human is now evolving into even more exotic and unsettling mixes of species, evoking the Greek myth of the monstrous chimera, which was part lion, part goat and part serpent.

In the past two years, scientists have created pigs with human blood, fused rabbit eggs with human DNA and injected human stem cells to make paralyzed mice walk.

Particularly worrisome to some scientists are the nightmare scenarios that could arise from the mixing of brain cells: What if a human mind somehow got trapped inside a sheep’s head?

The “idea that human neuronal cells might participate in ‘higher order’ brain functions in a nonhuman animal, however unlikely that may be, raises concerns that need to be considered,” the academies report warned.

  1. Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an very long comment but
    after I clicked submit my comment didn’t appear.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again.
    Anyhow, just wanted to say great blog!

    Human neuron cells participating in higher order brain functions in a non-human animal…..great.

    Going out on a limb here (surprise, I know) but if I were to go back into Wes’s old posts starting with Red Kachina/Blue Kachina I think I can see a pattern froming. Let’s give it a try.

    So, we have those left brained people hybridizing humans and animals and all sorts of other “useful” shit to thrust mankind into a “better” place. You see, we have reached such a level of disconnect with ourselves that we no longer need to be convinced or cajoled into seeing things “their” way. They just do it and inform us later. Anyway, this is what I noticed, or shall I say what happened to me.

    The Red Kachina/Blue Kachina post: (
    stated that our “Star Brothers” would be coming back to check on us at a time when there were to be strange beasties walking the Earth with us. Which in essence links directly to this post. Now from here the door is wide open to pretty much go anywhere, but I held true with the “Chimera” aspect of things.

    Saturn is what immediately came to me when the ideas of Star Brothers and Chimera were combined. Reason being is that Sauron (Saturn) was The Lord of the Rings who built his dark army by combining species of inhabitants of Middle Earth. Although it doesn’t talk about the Chimera aspect in this particular post:
    it does mention the Archons though. More on that later.

    We also have Buzz Aldrin telling us about monoliths on Mars:
    but can’t remember jackshit about being on the moon. Curious sidenote, Neil Armstrong never gave an interview where he was asked to answer questions about the moon. Huh.

    Now we are left with the unsettling notion that we are actually seeing this unfold before our very own eyes. Which alludes to the idea that the New/Old World Order is already in place and operating quite nicely.

    Saturn/Sauron/Sargon – Sargon is the great teacher who taught early mankind how to build an empire. Much like Sauron before he was contaminated with malice and the desire for power and control. Tolkien was very adamant about the truth behind his story when confronted by his friends that it was pure fiction. He was basically the only person who had access to certain books and could actually read them. Anyway.

    Saturn/Sauron/Sargon/Set – We are now also introduced to the idea of linear time through this entity. Clocks calendars etc. etc. Before “him” there was a monochronic time (linear) we had been, up to this point, experiencing “polychronic” time, more like a cyclicar time. This, in essence created our current dilemma, the “time trap”. We are now “Set” in a monochronic system that requires sacrifice in all things. The symbol that pops into mind is Father Time, also portrayed as the scythe carrying old timer (Grim Reaper) who is perpetually in need of sacrifice via Baby New Year.

    This is where it gets disturbingly bitter. I guess this could be easily summed up with the Holly Grieg story:
    I also could basically insert this moment in time here, November 29, 2009, (or just about anywhere in this particular post) because of its ubiquitous nature. The day “The Susan” burst in on the scene,
    Yes, she is still blogging (after much coercion to do so) and stickin’ it good to those Atlanteans/Archons. Give em’ hell Susan!!!

    Saturn/Sauron/Sargon/Set/Satan – This disturbing piece of the puzzle is set into motion by the need to feed off of the energies of the unknowing. The Archons, who were referred to earlier in my rant, get their name from the Greek word archtos which means bear. The occult symbol for, you guessed it, pedophiles. These Archons are what nearly claimed the sanity and eventually the life of one Stanley Kubrik:
    What solidified it for me was his movie A.I. Where a “young boy” was gifted to a mother for reasons not central to the Archon stereotype. What mother wants a perpetual boy? (thank you J. Weidner) Anyway, this boy had a steady companion that is, you guessed it, a bear.

    All of this and more leads to an over reaching story that blankets all aspects of our lives. The manipulation of “us” or etymologically speaking “we two” since it is just you and I sharing this monochronic moment. teehee

    I must admit that this picture paints a grim future for mankind, but couldn’t it be possible that through “knowledge with reason” we could be set free from this “time trap”?

    Again, thank you Wes for all of your work.

      Amazing connecting of the “DOTS”!! Not that these facts are encouraging, but we all did come to this consciousness to realize the dual nature of creation and hopefully face, courageously, what-ever lies in wait for us!!

    2. You’re on the right track, Froggy. You are correct in that I usually don’t post things randomly, and that I have a deeper purpose with posting specific articles. Yes, they lead in certain directions, which will be clear when I have exchanged my old material at with the new, which I am currently working on…

      People who follow this blog can read it as if it’s just interesting information which hopefully teaches them something, or they can read it as a piece of art, where they connect the dots like you do, or they may read them, understanding that they are a preparation for something (like you do), or they can mix all the three.
