> Can we risk being wrong on the safety of genetic engineering ? Better pick a fight with the monster now before it gets too big for the test tube and tires of eating itself. When it says, "I'm hungry, how 'bout you?", you'd better throw it a bone (if not your own, then maybe a clone)

Other analogies would be; a computer with a single, super-fast processor that appears to be doing many tasks at once, or a play in which God performs all the parts, but jumps between them so rapidly as to appear like separate individuals
