bell shape

I found this, it is a Jellyfish! a transparently naked sea animal, you can see through all the things inside it, it is soft, gentle and it is looked beautiful.

most of us probably know that jellyfish only live like hours or days? the one in the picture is really special.

this is Turritopsis nutricula and is bell-shaped, with a maximum diameter of about 4.5 millimetres (0.18 in) and is about as tall as it is wide.

The relatively large stomach is bright red and has a cruciform shape in cross section.

this Jelly Fish can revert to the polyp (smallest cell) stage after becoming sexually mature. it alters the differentiated state of the cell and transforms it into a new cell.

First, the umbrella reverts itself and then the tentacles and mesoglea get resorbed.

The reverted medusa then attaches itself to the substrate by the end that had been at the opposite end of the umbrella and starts giving rise to new polyps to form the new colony.

Theoretically, this process can go on indefinitely, effectively rendering the jellyfish biologically immortal.

this Jellyfish is theoretically live in immortality! they die only because of predation or disease in a plankton stage.

in the future scientists will probably be able to do research on it and extract something interesting to be used by human. many of our dead cell can be renew, repaired or reform into a new cell.

it sounds cool, crazy and funny.

when next time we about to die (old enough or diseased) then we took this cell we gonna back to baby again, born young and innocent, you forgot everything about your life and it starts as a brand new person right but you gonna need mama to feed you a bottle of milk.

there is a movie called The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. the guy grows younger each year.

Future seems so interesting and exciting plus pretty much fantasy.

Back to this Jellyfish, it originated from the sea of Caribbean and now swim across many pacific seas and it live in a tropical kind of place.

as much as nothing kill them like weathers, poisons, climates or anything. they have no life-span. no measure their average age. they simply can reborn again.

Happy Leap Year!
