Re: Similitude vs. Tuvix

The fundamental difference is Sim in the end however reluctantly did volunteer for the procedure. Tuvix didn't and was killed against his will.

Really the big ethical dilemma to me is what gave them the right to "grow" a sentient being for the sole purpose of harvesting it? But hey, small change compared to the genocide that is Dear Doctor.
That was my quandary.

ENT has one thing going for it in that Sim CHOSE to die.

But, what it has going AGAINST it is that...they created the being on purpose, deliberately in the first place...at least Tuvix was an accident.

So I don't know which is worse, honestly.
