I'm disputing this: "One day this jellyfish could allow your descendants to live thousands of years or more"
Not: "But to say that we can't fathom that cellular differentiation processes might one day play a part in human longevity falls rather short of the truth".
That's not what you initially said, and you have since changed your tune.
Sure, one day I could be a billionaire. The prospects are highly unlikely, and there are huge limitations but it could occur one day (fingers crossed!!!). However, it's probable that I will be a millionaire based on my current outlook. Those are two very different statements, right?
The human body has inherent limitations that are affecting our longevity.
In the near future, we might see people living to 100 more frequently, and it has nothing to do with an immortal organism.
