thats cause the story never gets old it's what happens when we mess with stuff we shoudn't.
Well, that is somewhat of a stigma in Hollywood movies, and alot of fiction, the idea of going into places 'we should not go.' Or doing something 'we should not do.' Yet if we did not go against the grain, science, including medicine, would not evolve to the level it has. There are vaccines and treatments we can obtain, nowadays, that our ancestors would have killed for, notably for diseases that would kill them, or render them somehow disabled. I mean, look at cataracts, a condition that would have left one blind decades ago, with no hope of a cure. Now a very simple operation, involving a one night stay in hospital, can cure this condition.
When I refer to a mistake being made by man, I was referring to the mistakes of books or movies like Jurassic Park, where the scientists think they have control over the dinosaurs, but discover how foolish they have been, by overlooking certain areas (the frog DNA, for example) or problems, as well as ignoring the scrupulous members of the team, or the simple question of 'What if the power went out?' When Hammond, in Jurassic Park, says that 'we asked ourselves if we could, but never asked if we should', is a rather ignorant statement from a supposed man of science. OR the idea that man can create life from dead material, yet fail to realise that the creature will have intelligence, feelings, emotions, and dreams. Dr Frankenstein assumes himself to be greater than God, and that is his downfall. He is not omnipotent, he is a mortal.
