Meat the future (In Vitro?)
Posted 14 March 2013 - 01:05 AM
My name is Michael Brogan and I am conducting research into consumer attitudes towards cultured meat.
Please consider taking part in this survey, we'd like to know what you think.

Surveyed, don't know if the information actually got /sent/.
The universe has gone from unimaginable, featureless heat to complexity and it will return in time to unimaginable, featureless cold.

Filled it. Please publish the results!
I do hope Modern Meadows and the others succeed in this.

Just completed the survey. I am a vegetarian and animal rights are by far my highest priority on this matter.

Who are you conducting the research for?

Actually if you ask in this forum this will be far from representative, because there will be much more people pro in-vitro meat than on other places (myself included).

I completed your survey. I agree with the above post: this forum will be extremely biased towards technology than the general population. But in my honest opinion, the opinion of an uneducated mind doesn't matter--things happen in the world whether or not you believe in them. I fully support in vitro meat, but the gains in land area and the lessening of the environmental impact due to farming animals are personally more important to me than the reduction of suffering in animals, but I do see this as a very good side effect. It's morbid, but I think the human lives saved from better farming practices and a reduction of climate change are the most important outcome. I think I hold this belief because I don't know where to draw the line on when to quantify an animal's life. I think a human life is very important, and I think a cow or a rabbit's life is important, but what does one make of insects or bacteria? And why do I value an animal's life, but some would eat me if they were hungry? An interesting philosophical question, I think.

My mind has been torn into Oblivion, is there a way to tear that too? Reach into the Oblivion, and through Zen, tear the Universe anew.
