this reminds me of an SF book I once read. this guy invented something called "meatbeast." a meatbeast was basically a big pile of muscle about 3 ft high. it had a very primitive "brain" that allowed it to run its bodily functions, but not to feel pain or have any capability for higher-order thinking. no eyes, ears, sensory organs of any kind. it fed on grains that were poured into a mouthlike orifice at the top. as the owner of a meatbeast, you need only walk into your basement (where they were typically kept) and carve off a chunk and, voila!, dinner. as long as you kept it well fed and gave it time to heal, you had a limitless supply of guilt-free meat. bizarre, eh?

  • Destiny is my science fiction movie about the future of humanity. It's an epic, similar in breadth and scope to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
