Frankenstein: Creating a Human

Timmy Harder Mr. Reynolds English February 20, 2010 Frankenstein vs. Modern Science When Frankenstein, by bloody shame Shelley, was written, it was seen as a novel warning scientists and masses of the time of the jeopardys that could hap from exploring unknown scientific fields. In Frankenstein, the unknown field of study is the base of a live human race creation. At the time, this was seen as an unthinkable and out(predicate) task, but Victor exculpates it, although poorly. He began the essay with little preparation and close to of the procedures were done without c are.His experiment was way before its time and most people were confused or tired by his insane asylum. Even today creation of a human being is unheard of. However, today, one of the major issues that is being discussed is that of stem cell look into. The scientists of Stem Cell Research and Victor Frankenstein percent umpteen a(prenominal) aspects that could greatly inhibit their overall findings. Victo r had many riddles that could scare off modern scientific research but the two major fears are the side-effects that the creation may cause and scientist un nimbleness of their actions.The beginning problem with exploring a new scientific field is that not much is known well-nigh it including the procedure and just the knowledge of the subject. Victor began his initial research when he returned from England after visiting fellow scientists. He wanted to make his pattern famous, but he totally disregarded the necessities of the experiment. When he completed his creation, it was so hideous that he had to leave because he could not handle the ugliness. He planned to make a human like himself instead he created a addict with yellowish skin and a h eight of eight feet.Needless to say, this creature was about as far away from a human as he could ingest gotten it was more of a giant. When Victor showtime sees the monster he says, The beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and churn up filled my heart. (pg. 38) Victor could not even force himself to look at the monster because it was too hideous. When Victor first began the experiment, he believed that he had the complete set of tools to perform the experiment but, in the end, he was not prepared enough.Today, Stem Cell research is in the same sort of specify that Victors experiment was in. Stem Cells were discovered in the of late 1960s and real live experiments did not begin until the 1980s. At first, the experiments were performed on animals and many resulted in spear carrier limbs and mutated body parts. The experiments were then tested on a set of twins, who were in dire need of a deck out marrow transpose. The initial experiment went perfect, but afterwards their legs did not locomote properly, and they went in for another operation.However, stem cells were researched for about 10 years until the first experiment was conducted, while Victor conducted his first experiment just four-spot years after he completed medical school. The only problem was that both experiments were conducted with total disregard of what could happen after the experiment, and in the nerve of the twins improperly functioning legs for life. Once the experiment or surgery was completed there are multiple side-effects that could follow each procedure. Side-effects are the things that may occur after the experiment that could damage the person for whom the experiment was completed, or the population.For example, Victor created the creature, and with the creature followed many problems that affected the creature itself, and many people in the city were bothered by the monster. The creature killed many people on accident, and the creature was affected by his ugliness and his drop of communication skills. He was unable to communicate with other people and he eventually became lonely. Although many of the creatures side-effects were emotional and could have been avoided by the creature itself, th e side-effects in total could have been prevented if Victor never created the monster in the first place.However, many of the side-effects that follow stem cell transplant are only harmful to the person for whom they were transplanted. Several side-effects include no-stop bleeding, Anemia, and Infertility. none of these directly affect the population, although Infertility would prevent children from being born. However, the most lay waste to side-effect is a mutation of several body parts. One example was a kid growing an extra bladder because the environment prevented him from growing an extra kidney. Unfortunately, the man perished from cancer.Mary Shelley did as best as she could to warn the future scientists of the danger of engaging in an unknown field of science. Today, with stem cell research it is a relatively new topic that scientists are still researching. many initial experiments have been performed, and when done correctly, can create scientific medicals. but stem cell research is still young, and with its relative newness, many experiments have gone wrong and have resulted in deaths and terrible side-effects.
