THE CENTER FOR EPIGENETIC CLONING
31.05 .- 8.06.2013
An American researcher has developed the world's first trouble-free human cloning technique, promising to make replication of people as routine as downloading movies. To market the new methodology, which applies the emerging field of epigenetics, experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats is launching a Berlin-based company that will duplicate some of the most famous living people, including Lady Gaga and Angela Merkel. The company will also clone some of the most well-known figures in history, including Jesus Christ.
"Potentially we can clone anybody who ever lived," claims Mr. Keats. "We can bring them back from the dead, and I don't just mean like a one-time Tupac hologram." To promote the widest possible use of epigenetic cloning, he has made all of the technology open source, and is inviting collaborations from institutions including UNESCO and the Pirate Bay. He is also designing a cocktail to epigenetically clone himself, though he cautions that the consequences of using it will be beyond his control: "My clones will each have a will of their own."
Jonathon Keats's Epigenetic Cloning Agency was open for business at team titanic from 31st of May to 8th of June.
