Genetic engineers Clive Nicoli and Elsa Kast achieve fame by successfully splicing together the DNA of different animals to create incredible new hybrid animals. Now they want to use human DNA in a hybrid that could revolutionize science and medicine. But the pharmaceutical company that funds their research, N.E.R.D. (Nucleic Exchange Research Development), forbids it, instead mandating that their department be reorganized to focus on finding extracting certain proteins from the creatures they have already created. Not wishing to spend all their time engaged in what they consider mundane research for the next 5-10 years, Clive and Elsa secretly conduct their own experiments, blending human DNA with that of other animals.
Though they disagree about actually bringing the hybrid to term, Elsa pushes the issue and she persuades Clive to go along with it, in continued secrecy. They name their creature Dren (nerd backwards), who exceeds their wildest dreams; she begins to grow and learn at an accelerated rate. As their lab becomes exceedingly crowded, and the risk of Dren being discovered increases, they move Dren to Elsa’s late mother’s farm.
Their work at the company suffers as their attention is focused on Dren. One of the original hybrid animals that they had created, which was originally female had changed sex unbeknownst to Clive and Elsa since they were distracted. This led to a disastrous presentation during a company shareholders’ meeting, when the two original hybrids, previously one male and one female very much in love with each other, became both male, killed each other in front of shareholders and potential investors. Following this meeting, N.E.R.D., found itself in danger of going out of business unless they could find a profitable discovery. Source -Wikipedia. Watch film trailer of Splice.

The star card in the tarot deck (Aquarius) is a powerful reminder of what could happen when something goes wrong and curiosity gets the better of man, and the picture on the front shows Pandora’s Box. Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it to human beings. This angered Zeus and as a consequence, he instructed Hephaestus to create Pandora and her box and told her not to open it, knowing that she would. The opening of the box unleashed ills and suffering upon mankind, along with hope. In the film, it was strictly forbidden to use human DNA in a hybrid and so the moral of the story goes…
