a. what does it mean by high-stakes risk calculation?
b. what does the intese emotions imply?

I am looking forward to seeing your answers. As always, thans.
conceptually dazzling- an astonishing idea, yet familiar because it has been around for decades, but the moral issues of using parts of other people's bodies have not yet been resolved
