This isn't an organ but certainly an important part of ones body. Just a precursor to what is to come.

That is Awsome that we are able to do that I mean soon we could live alot longer than ever I wonder if we could replace vital organs with a excat clone of our DNA and RNA and our bodies would not Reject it.


The thing that I only see as a hurdle is how long can the human brain function because peole that hit 90 and 100 tend to be forget full and are not as sharp as they once were either due to their advaced age and if we get to living to ages of 160-170 and 80 is new 40 and that is now new middle age for humans it would be odd but interesting to see begin to happen in my lifetime since I doubt I will benifit from it but will alteast see it become more common place.
