  2. Even crazier, it’s someone’s drafts for some “automate/apparatus for life support”; I’ve heard somewhere [on the internet, hah] that in the late 19th century/early 20th there were some attempts at grandiose scientific undertakings for life saving and brain transplants and whatever, in Russia. Actually, there’s a good sci-fi novel (and good film) by Bulgakov where a brain of a [drunk/low-life] human is transplanted into a dog and the dog becomes like a human (with plenty of sarcastic social caricature while we’re at it) – called “Dog’s Heart/Sobachiye Serdtse”, I’d recommend checking it out.
