I read how to build a person by Justin Lieber Justin Lieber is a professor at the University of Houston whom also writes science fiction This selection which was taken from his novel Beyond Rejection is fictional and is based in the future The story is set in the year 2112 in a Houston hospital In this hospital they are brains on one person into the body of another The story starts with the hospital giving a class on how they are attempting to transplant a mind into a human body The test subjects name was Sally Cudmus and she has been frozen in ice for two yearsIn this story they discuss the difficulties of implanting a brain into a body They talk of the problems that would occur if a mind was implanted into a body that was not its own They say this is possible due to the fact that the brain can adapt to major changes around it with in days The example they give to show this is possible is one with reverse goggles If a person puts on goggles that would make everything appear upside down the person would be disoriented After a few day the subjects brain would adapt to these changes making what the goggles made upside down rights side up If the goggles were then taken off everything again would seem upside down until the brain once again adapted to this changeIn this story it is said that a mind is like a tape and the only thing this tape needs is a body similar to its original to function I do not agree with this because a brain is not like any other organ that can be transplanted A persons brain is dynamic in that it functions with a particular person and is one of a kind No matter how similar the body types may be a humans brain and thoughts can not be transferred
