    Never mind curing an illness, when do I get my mutant X-men powers? We can be GODS!!!

    Actually, it's more likely that those with control of this technology will turn the rest of us into docile servants, to cure us of all our distressing and unwanted thoughts. We must destroy them now, for the sake of our children!

    this one uses zinc fingers, which we have talked about. it seemed slightly speculative at the time. that it is being tested is encouraging.

    the title is slightly misleading.

    hope this guy gets healed.
