Making a Woman

the path of God ...


I am intrigued with the idea of making a woman, as opposed to simply accepting the naturally-occurring ones that currently dominate the planet (and I do mean dominate).

The precedent for such an ambitious undertaking is of course taken from the Bible. The very first woman (Eve) was a creature formed and fashioned by the hand of God Himself, not something that virtually grew out of the ground in the fashion of the man's appearance (yes, with God's help as well, but not quite the same as with the woman, who was actually a clone of sorts, a much more sophisticated process, as opposed to the much more natural man).

Since God seems to have abandoned the pastime of woman-making, perhaps it is time for technology to pick up the slack and begin the process anew. If the women the computer graphic artists are currently visualizing are any indication at all (and I sincerely hope they are) the women about to be engineered through advanced genetic engineering techniques should be nothing less than fantastic (jaw-dropping fantastic).



It is truly difficult to conceive that a "normal" guy would not want something of the same at his disposal (yes, disposal, with sex whenever, and however, he wanted it; no negotiating, groveling, bending over backwards to please or any other aggravations required).

And it would not be a woman made of synthetic materials either, after the fashion of those love dolls that sell for six-thousand dollars. Genetically manufactured "babes" will be made of human DNA, just as Eve was made from human DNA, taken from Adam's rib.

And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Genesis 2:22

It is apparent that the primary driving force behind this development is summed up in one word: control. In the context of the prevailing relationship paradigm, women control the mating game, a circumstance that many men flat out do not like.

Genetically engineered women will of course be non-sentient. They will not have what we are so pleased to call souls, which means that they will not have feelings that can be hurt or sensibilities that must be catered to.

We may envision the perfect woman as possessing a level of intelligence that is perhaps equivalent to that of a dog, or cat, enough smarts to take care of herself with respect to hygiene, but not enough to offer any sass (or engage in any nagging).

It is important to note that the ability to make such women will in no way herald the doom of "natural" women, who will always be around, because there will always be a demand for them. Yes, there are many men who like the challenges inherent in the mating game, for that is precisely how they view women, as a challenge.

And they might indeed wither without such challenges, in much the same way that certain plants are not completely successful if they are not properly stressed. Then again, there is the wisdom inherent in that ever-popular saying that everyone seems so pleased to offer lately: if it don't kill you it makes you stronger.

I suspect that there is an element of truth to this. The women, after all, are not killing us, so it is conceivable that they are making us better people with all their neurotic tedium.

But, be that as it may, we still want the goods without all the effort we are required to invest. What will likely happen is that the new women will merely supplement the old ones, not replace them. At first, these new women will be prohibitively expensive, available to only the wealthiest. Subsequently, they will be used in much the same way that porn is used, for purely masturbatory purposes.
