OMG PERG you went into worm science:D woot. Amazing someone else has seen those specials/shows on the human genome/rna/dna, they air them rarely here. For real, they are studied for longer life, with gene manipulation they've had worms live twice the span of life, and at the same rate. meaning age like you do, and live to 200+. lol longer definitely something ppl want. imagine ppl dieing in their 30's doing in their 60-90's with bad health looking the same they do that has got to screw with some peoples minds, the sheer possibilities. But yes, endless research. Kind of like cern working with mini evaporating black holes. People all downing on time travel lol. Or dimension/universal travel. I for one believe a wormhole can be made by manipulating space time with an event horizon. GE is working on, and will most likely be funded by the military for a storage unit, for such evaporating mini black holes. Or so says data that's out there. Funny that all these things were predicted, and are damn sure happening. Just like contact, and alien bla bla bla were predict from 100's to 1000's of years ago, and ppl couldn't have less belief right now lol. kind sad huh?
