Does anybody remember the BBC series "The Future is Wild"? I remember seeing something similar in there.
I'm not sure if the documentary predicted that evolution could come up with something like this photosynthesis slug, or they already knew about it
(the series is from 2003). Did they just recently discovered this slug?
yeah i want my genetic structure experimented with so i dont have to eat no more! think about it this could be a cure for disease if you survived off
of sunlight the only worry would be skin cancer eating greasey foods wouldnt clog up you arteries anymore or give u ecoli or flu's or mad cow
disease! the only meat you would eat would be P***y
I'm trying to remember from my college micro-biology days - wasn't the very first life form a type of bacteria (animal) that utilized photosynthesis
(plant)? I'm thinking cyanobacteria (probably spelled wrong). I might be way off - any biologists out there?
So they have to eat a certain amount of algae before they can photosynthesize, right? This makes me wonder what else they could ingest and later
recieve nourishment directly from another source. Maybe the truly remarkable thing about these creatures is not the utilizing of chlorophyl, but
their ability to copy other life-forms'. What else could they live off of?
i was always fascinated with this sort of thing ever since i wastched godzilla vs biollante where a scientist took godzilla cells found from godzilla
1984 the film previous and crossed it with plant cells that eventually became biollante i know this is way out there and off topic in a way but the
movie certainly sparked my interest in half animal half plant science!
yeah i know i was talking about the post about applying the science to yourself nah what we need to do is take some of them slugs and figure what
would be the best subject to test dna recoding with maybe a frog or some amphibian would be the best in my mind as its genetic make up would most
liekly more accepting of the study and see if we can alter something else maybe not to this exctreme but enough to make some noise in the scientific
Am I the only one who thinks this may be a product mans interactions with the environment like GM foods containing agrobacterium? This does cause gene
transfers cross species, cross kingdom, & cross super kingdom. Something tells me we'll be finding many more wild discoveries in the not so distant
