For the first time scientists have succeeded in bringing an extinct species back to life through cloning. The newborn Pyrenean ibex, a species which was declared extinct back in 2000, sadly died shortly after birth from a lung defect.

"An extinct animal has been brought back to life for the first time after being cloned from frozen tissue."

I was trying to answer (question?) your immortality premise. I'm not sure that cloning is actually more a form of immortality than simply having your own children, after all they do 'carry' our familial genes on. Agree totally with your question comment, it is the only way that the human race moves forwards, we so often repeat the mistakes of the past because we get stuck in 'stand still' mode as its the easy option. Thats a beautiful forest picture you've got there, you can 'feel' the peace. Suppose it has something to do with being an 'intelligent' species Man, I mean (ha ha!!!) but if we di... [More]

Suppose it has something to do with being an 'intelligent' species Man, I mean (ha ha!!!) but if we didn't advance scientce we would probably all still live in caves. My signature is courtesy of the Great and Magical magician himself, Mr Hissie Sola, aka Scorpion!! It is BEAUTIFUL!! I support technology also, I just think that we've fallen somewhat 'off the rails' when it comes to the spirituality (not religion) side of the equation, 'balance' is what its all about, I think?

Agreed! But then, were we ever "on the rails?!" Showoff! Good question though. I suspect that at some time in prehistory we were much closer to the sprituality side but without the technology. There is a suggestion that some carved tortoise-shells found in China dating back approximately 6,000 years may, in fact, be the first written language. The first archaic homo sapien was thought to have evolved somewhere between 400,000 to 250,000 years ago. Thats an awful long time to forget a lot of wisdom, especially when it could only be passed down verbally through myth. In terms of me being "on the... [More]

Wisdom eh? carving on tortoise shells.. poor tortoises! not like they could get away in a hurry!! I don't know about that? That little guy in your photo is certainly moving, I don't know if I could catch him? Maybe they set Chinese tortoise snares?
