I have been thinking and meditating on this question and can't find a answer. In the future we will have the ability to create a functional human body. Will a mind stream/life stream be reincarnated in the man made human body? Thank you all for the help.

Hi FC,

The two things that come to mind are:

1) We're all man made. The fact that the humans who made us didn't fully understand the technology involved doesn't alter the fact that we are the result of their decisions.

2) Our circumstances, including our bodies, are the result of past karma. So having a genetically engineered body should be the result of past karma.

Saying that we are both the result of two other peoples' decisions and the result of past karma may be contradictory. Maybe we can't be both. Or maybe we can. You may have other objections, since you've been thinking about this longer than I have.

Fat lot of help I am. :)

Quit thinking, and you'll meditate better.
