Default The world's only immortal animal


(Photo: Peter Schuchert)

The turritopsis nutricula species of jellyfish may be the only animal in the world to have truly discovered the fountain of youth.
Since it is capable of cycling from a mature adult stage to an immature polyp stage and back again, there may be no natural limit to its life span. Scientists say the hydrozoan jellyfish is the only known animal that can repeatedly turn back the hands of time and revert to its polyp state (its first stage of life).
The key lies in a process called transdifferentiation, where one type of cell is transformed into another type of cell. Some animals can undergo limited transdifferentiation and regenerate organs, such as salamanders, which can regrow limbs. Turritopsi nutricula, on the other hand, can regenerate its entire body over and over again. Researchers are studying the jellyfish to discover how it is able to reverse its aging process.
Because they are able to bypass death, the number of individuals is spiking. They're now found in oceans around the globe rather than just in their native Caribbean waters. "We are looking at a worldwide silent invasion," says Dr. Maria Miglietta of the Smithsonian Tropical Marine Institute.

Oh and this would be a good opportunity to pass this link on:

http://www.singularity.com/themovie/index.php


^ Hopefully the full movie will be online by fall after it circulates the summer movie festivals.

By 2045 we may essentially become immortal like this jellyfish. At least I hope.

we are very close, well i shouldnt say we, but them and it has nothing to do with any cybernetic enhancements or anything like that, it has to do with keeping cellular communication at its peak.

people could easily live active lives well to 150+ but in this modern world it is nearly impossible for the common man to have this lifestyle

life and life more abundantly - the reason why we are not sharing in this is because we refuse to do what we know is the right thing to do - the righteous and intelligent are in control of this whole thing - not the evil - we are really just seeing it the wrong way - Again, Death is unnecessary and unnatural

No one lives forever, no one. But with advances in modern science and my high level income, it's not crazy to think I can live to be 245, maybe 300. Heck, I just read in the newspaper that they put a pig heart in some guy from Russia. Do you know what that means?
