Goldfish Level Alert

cercaria, you must must must read more about helacyton gartleri. I am trying to work it into my theory of goldfish immortality the more I am learning!

This of course, assumes you don't already know about them. If you do, that is something you knew before I did, and the reason book learnin with a tuition is sometimes better than my tried and true shotgun method.

Telomerase and chromosome splitting
you are spot on on the built in "life counter" encoded in our genetic structure. the key question to me though, is why, in MANY kinds of cancer (and certainly in human cells) why in all other cases, the extremity of a harsh or sterile environment disrupts the play of the cells's cycle, but in the case of Helacyton gartleri it has managed to not only overcome this process, but innovate beyond the bounds of most other cellular derivitives of like origin.
