I've been drinking a glass of horse blood every morning for the last 34

Nice someone remember the old gifted writer Cordwainer Smith. I read it when
I was quite young and became impressed with his theory of making people with
animal qualities, people similar to cats who could see in the dark, people
strong as lions, fast as leopards...
He was a weird person, worked for FBI or the CIA.

Interpretation, wishful thinking - bullshit.

Anyone who had medical tests done in an hospital to check out the heart and
who has been injected with chemicals knows it needs little (these chemicals)
to make you feel a completely different person. (anxious, calm, nervous etc)
Chemicals have a deep impact on our being (all drug users know this too),
feelings, experiences of ourselves, so it's no wonder horse proteins make
you feel changed, anything would.

I like the experiment, the discussion it triggers, but I abhor the biased
language used by these artists. In my opinion it doesn't take science
serious, only uses it for something else.
