Life is now going synthetic. Scientist has now developed a jellyfish from polymer and cells from rat heart. Thats moving, a real life jellyfish. What shall we call a polymer based life with a rat based pumping heart. An artificial life or biological life. Also how much can it survive 6 months like a rat. If so why not tortoise heart cells let such invention live hundred and thousands of years.

What is the point of this? I'm curious... do they have a motive other than creating artificial life?

Or send it down to work the coal mines. You're right; you never know what they might do next!

So what human will call this new life, an Artificial Life. I think another movie will pop up from such discoveries with some dramatic disadvantage being shown out like what we had with stem cells debate in senate.
