This is one of those instances where I choose to add this to my canon because it's just too good. Like the Lord of the Rings "Fly you Fools!" theory, this theory is just a bit of fun that takes a rickety bit of plot and turns it into an opportunity to deepen a character's hidden cunning. It makes wonderful sense.

I think control over cancer is an important technological goal. However, I can certainly see where he is coming from, and I can't really say he's wrong. It's mostly a matter of perspective, and if people adopt that feeling, treatment isn't forced on people.

But at the end of the day, "curing cancer" isn't really about curing cancer. It's about the science and possible technology and treatments which solving that problem could create.

And to top off the round table of ideas, fighting cancer to live is one of the most strengthening things a person can do if they manage to succeed, and it should generally be encouraged, but ultimately those decisions and their implications rest on the shoulders of the individual.

It's funny, because when I was in high school, this is exactly the question I asked in a Law class, and everyone just sort of laughed and considered me a crazy person. I think the actual question I asked was "Is it morally ok to tattoo flames on a small hairless dog?"

My argument was that indeed, that it does cause some suffering to the dog, but after it healed, that would absolutely be the coolest dog anyone had ever seen, so it would probably get a huge amount of attention, and considering attention is like crack to a dog, it would be a net positive in its life. Not to say ALL dogs should be tattooed but I digress.

Mostly it's just hilarious to see that I'm not the only person who asked the question, and others didn't laugh at them and call them insane.
