Theoretically, this cycle can repeat indefinitely, rendering it biologically immortal.

Don't worry, he will revert to the polyp stage and then Obama will recruit him for some evil stem cell experiment.

I think that in the next 50 years, someone will develop a therapy that will make people younger. It will be expensive, and probably forbidden in most countries.

I don't think so. I am willing to take a bet since probably I will be dead in 50 years and you won't B)

wow Gerben yo uhave a lot of ideas of what the future is bringing.

I have the filling that a big big war will arise before I die, but you have much nicer ideas.


Idea of immortallity for a jellyfish is not 'really' immortallity. Unless you are capable of holding memories I wouldn't call it that way.
