I personally think that humans should embrace the penguin lifestyle, of a pair of loving parents taking turns caring for the egg (machine womb). I'd rather not head in the direction of thousands of eggs being gestated as disposable worker-soldiers for a hive.

I have read where lately they have discovered that they do more than just provide support for the neurons (aren't they the blood brain barrier?).  But anyway, they influence neurons in some ways and we are just starting to find out what.  How do you upload a gut and glial cells?  bill w
