    Agreed. Of course it will be around the time 47%+ of us are AI, but agreed.

    We're getting closer to:

    Cypher: You know, I know this steak doesn't exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth, the Matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious.

    If lab meat is like hamburger, then I can deal with that.

    If lab meat is a muscle like mass to mimic steak...I don't know if America is ready for that ...even 20-30 years from now.
    Economics and reality might change the perception. The cost of meats, including chicken is climbing way faster than any general rate of inflation. One reason being that raising critters for meat is the most inefficient use of farmland on a per calorie basis, a water per unit of protein basis and a few other bases.

    The developed world, if relative economic conditions remain somewhat similar to what we have now may be the last to adjust, but it is coming.

    I disagree with the boldfaced. Lab-grown meat is meat. It consists of organic animal muscle cells, intended as food. Whether it's grown in a lab vat or in an animal skin doesn't change its status as "meat."

    Will it be in the display case next to the Soylent Green?

    Most important question:

    How will it taste hot off the charcoal grill?

    There will always be a market for "natural" meat. Even if it costs far more than lab-grown meat, there will be enough of a market to keep livestock farmers in business.

    True - but there's still a strong market for those who buy and sell genuine fur garments.
