A natural phenomenon, certainly

By Stephen. February 3rd, 2010

I hasten to add that I don’t mean to suggest there are supernatural beings in the world. Rather, it is simply the case that there is an “aging clock” built into organisms that makes them get old on a certain schedule depending on the species. A mutation might shut down the clock. Such a person would grow to maturity, and from then on have the appearance of someone in their mid-20s forever. (That is to say, unless they are injured.)

I’m going to interview some biologists to get more information on this essential topic, which I will post soon. — Stephen
