Because that's just the way nature works, we've only developed ethics and morals to counterbalance the immediate self interest motive.

The path that this technology will take is fairly straightforward, tetraplegics can now walk, more complex nerve functions will follow. The end position will be that as long as the brain itself can be sustained we will be able to build hardware or grow body parts to replace everything else.

How long can we sustain a brain, will we find a way to replace neurons & their links insitu?
