In an earlier post about our cells, I went on and on about how our cells have these neat properties and make up who we are as humans; I learned of this through a documentary.
Here is a link to some recent research that is right up that vein:
Cancer Cells 'Cheat Suicide Call'
What if cancer is the evolutionary attempt at eternal life? What if one day, we get the break through we need and can suppress cancer while enhancing and prolonging the life of healthy cells?
What if evolution produces people whose good cells start to cheat suicide while the bad cells only die?
What if Heroes is becoming a reality?
Okay, I guess that's taking it too far, huh?
