Electrokit

An organ, which takes good care of the blood using electricity.

Electrokit is an artificial organ, which takes care of the quality of my blood, by providing all nutrients, oxygen, cleanup, etc., by recycling rather than ingesting new matter, so that I live by consuming electricity like computers do...

I was wondering why the organ cared for blood https://www.youtube...watch?v=QAL2_5-FswE

An organ with no electricity and doesn't even care about blood https://www.youtube...watch?v=hh2dxH_hOH4

       Verges on magic.   

       However, it's also baked and WKTE: dialysis machine + heart-lung machine + IVs.

       Rather well warmed over in science-fiction stories; also real life in hospitals for those unable to feed or be fed.

       It's called Assimilation, and it's Baked and WKTE.

       Electrokit is about full-cycle reuse of nutrients, so that no matter (except the electrons) would need to leave or enter the body.... Is it really still WKTE? Maybe, maybe I didn't watch enough of SciFI,. but then, probably I should elaborate on how exactly it works.

       //full-cycle reuse of nutrients// ewww.

       [MaxwellBuchanan], I don't mean we have to import a subsystem of biosphere. Let me think.

       Patterning volumes of dancing electrons' spins and fields to do any molecular manipulations wanted will be the magic of the future.

       Human organism has a simple I/O. What this requires, is an electrochemical process to do O/I, essentially - convert sweat, tears, pee, poo into soylent and water... we could start from researching:   

       When a human eats diverse food of all kinds, it's definitely hard to do (it's probably in the realm of magic), but supposing that a human is consistently on soylent, we could start researching the output of organism, and compare that with soylent. There would probably be some consistent pattern.   

       Applications could have wide implications... before the mind uploading.

       Any civilised human being will die within about 48 hours if deprived of basic nutrients such as foie gras, a decent port, a good cheese, real chocolate, and occasional coffees. This is why I am only in Washington for 2 days.

       // 48 hours [...] 2 days // . . . so you're just going to stay till you die?

       Two days, but no nights - just 24 hours. Durrrrr ...

       This is all well and good, but it does leave a rather large question hanging -   

       How?

       I keep reading this as Electrokilt. You'd probably want undies with that one.
