i read someplace recently that the first successful head transplant had taken place. http://www.businessinsider.com/human-head-transplant-surgeon-claims-he-did-on-corpse-2017-11 we all know other stuff can be transplanted eyes, cornea, fingers, toes livers valves hearts and other organs, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Organ_transplantation i wonder, if you could receive the transplant someone's stem cells who was a great photographer you know, they had the eyes of a prince when it came to making photographs ... would the photographs made be yours or the doner's? then if you then go out and have the urge to buy his ( or her ) camera ... would the images made be yours or his ? and somehow you were in on ebay and found a hat, sunglasses, old cigar, cigarettes and clothes .. and you slowly turned yourself through plastic surgery ... into that person, without realizing it .. .. would the photographs taken be yours because it is your brain processing the images seen by his eyes or do the eyes over ride the brain ? it is well known what happens when a murderer's hand being transplanted onto someone else's body that the person with the new hand is destined to do heinous thngs. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/EvilHand i have to admit, sometimes after eating local wild turkey, i tend to walk into oncomming traffic and other times i have to be stopped because i keep bumping my head into my neighbor's shiny black car, i don't hold my breath until my face turns blue though. i've heard of others who eat local wild turkey and they end up running in circles inside the dunking donuts shop around the corner. ( the po-po is busy this time of year ) it is also known that if marty feldman helped you install abby normal's brain in a giant body you could easily train it to walk " heel toe, heel toe" across the floor and sing putting on the ritz overriding the monster's inate urges all's good, unless there is fire of course ... are the eyes the vision thing, can vision be learned or is it something created through one's life? and if transplantation ( of stem cells eyes, organs &c ) and wearing the clothes &c help define the person who used to produce the images through some process we do not yet understand it is ethical to obtain their essence claim the new work as one's own.
