Dr. Peter Scott-Morgan is a scientist diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease which destroys neurons that can control muscles, paralyze a person and can get so bad the person diagnosed can lose the ability to walk, talk or even breathe on their own.
So Dr. Scott-Morgan is fighting the disease and its side effects by going full cyborg!
The scientist is actually a roboticist and is using his skills to transition into a cyborg as a last-ditch effort to extend his life.
“When I say ‘Cyborg,’ I don’t just mean any old cyborg, you understand,” said Dr. Scott-Morgan. “But by far the most advanced human cybernetic organism ever created in 13.8 billion years.”
He says soon everything about himself, body and brain, will be robotic and irreversibly changed, turning him into Peter 2.0!
Sounds like the beginning of a bad sci-fi movie so be prepared for the inevitable robo-takeover.

THIS IS MY LAST POST as Peter 1.0. Tomorrow I trade my voice for potentially decades of life as we complete the final medical procedure for my transition to Full Cyborg, the month I was told statistically I would be dead. I’m not dying, I’m transforming! Oh, how I LOVE Science!!! pic.twitter.com/xCO17ph0lp
