Is Weird Science Possible?

    How powerful is the imagination?

    This has never been sufficiently tested. People will say, "It's tested every day," or something. But what you don't understand is that there is this massive overwhelming majority that says it isn't that powerful.

    But what is? What if Weird Science is possible? By "weird science" I mean pretty much just like in the movie "Weird Science." I don't know if you could create a person, but perhaps you could animate non-living things. Perhaps you would have to completely lose your mind in order to do this, becoming like some kind of Von Frankenstein, and who knows what you would create? Surely a monster.

    I am of the opinion that it is possible. That objects we are familiar with have qualities to them, perhaps, that we are too small-minded to recognize. So what would seem like weird science to us could just be the element or properties of certain objects that we overlook.

    I think colors are chemical by nature. I had some success turning a fluorescent light pink. I turned one green, too. But then I had the power shut down on my little operation. Light and color creates a chemical reaction, I do declare.

    Creating a human in a lab is totally in the realm of possibility with science. All you need is small amount of DNA. But then you get into the ethics of just because you can should you?What is not possible is doing in a suburban bedroom with a 1980's green screen computer like the movie. Back then computers were magic and most people did not understand even the basics like most do now. DNA was not even a well known concept back then.

    I take it you've never seen Weird Science. Two boys create a girl on their computer using a Barbie Doll and I don't know, wire and junk they find lying around. I think they had a gross misunderstanding in the 80s of how computers worked. They thought they would be like minds or something and you'd tap into some kind of Godhead where you could do anything. And I think the boys in the movie did tap into the Godhead, but it wasn't through the use of their computer. It was through the miracle of the imagination!

    I'm not sure if you could create a human just through pure imagination, though, yes, I suppose, in a sense, the creation of a human through pure imagination is what is happening the lab.

    But I take it a step further. What if everything we have been using to create a human, the physics behind all of the instruments, is just that little bit of what there really is that we have allowed ourselves to see because it is what we expect to see?

    the movie? no way.

    the tv show? of course, it happens all the time.

    serious answer: sure, why not? like said above, it can't be done by putting a bra on your head and plugging a barbie doll into the world's first home computer, but i think with infinite resources and infinite knowledge of how things work (neither of which currently exist, but are both possible for a theoretical answer) you could create a person or most anything else. or at least most anything that actually exists, as in you could create a person, but not necessarily a person that can fly by snapping their fingers. so with that stipulation and a little more thought, weird science might actually not be possible because that bitch was also straight magical in what she was able to do.

    Kelly Lebrock is just the master of Weird Science. They created her that way. She could alter reality with a thought. Perhaps the greatest mutant of all time, if you want to call her that. Gary and Wyatt tried, though. They risked lunacy to see if they could make their dreams come true.

    How can reality be altered?! I don't know, but they did it, and they convinced me it is true as well. Perhaps all you have to do is force something to coincide with a madness that others find perfectly acceptable. "This could be possible. It seems to be happening," they say, and then it seems more like it is happening than it isn't. And suddenly you have missile silos growing out of your house.
