Skloot’s purpose of telling Lack’s story does not come without the terrifying discovery of human experimentation. Researchers claim their experiments are for the greater good, but when they walk on a thin line, they will inevitably trample on both sides. According to the School of Law at Northwestern University, people who “violate bodily integrity and autonomy are routinely punished,” and yet scientist will escape unethical situations will only a slap on the wrist (99:1). Uncovering facts of Henrietta’s immortal life, Skloot indirectly poses the argument of medical malpractice. The medical experiments conducted during the nineteen forties and fifties were very controversial.
Carr argues, in reference to Stanley Kubrick's: 2001: A Space Odyssey, "as we come to rely on computers to mediate our understanding of the world, it is our own intelligence that flattens into artificial intelligence." (Carr, 2008, p.1). Carr believes that the constant need the human race has shown for such technology, will end up stripping humans of their humanity.

Joy urges others technology elites to constantly consider the inadvertent resultant impacts of their creations. Joy bases his argument by comparing twenty first century technology such as nanotechnology, genetic engineering and the robotics [GNR] with the early technology such as
13) This form of thinking is naïve because one just has to look at the news to see what technology without regulations has done to the environment, people and our future. We still see and some of us feel the backlashes of what technology has brought from global warming to cancer caused by asbestos.
