Transdifferentiation: Another Way to Immortality?

Well, sort of. But apparently only if you are Turritopsis nutricula, a form of jellyfish.

The reason I bring it up is because you have probably seen multiple reports of new cross litigation brought by the Un-Real Diocese of San Joaquin against the Real Diocese of San Joaquin and ECUSA on some of the sites that shall not be mentioned.

Should you choose to read the description of the litigation, and the argument, be forewarned: It is transdifferentiation except in this case, plaintiffs don't return to a youthful state, they remain semi-transparent jellyfish no matter what they call themselves.

So before you put on your tin-foil head garb for the annoying escalator ride to nowhere, just keep that in mind. And take some aspirin. You'll have a headache when you are through.

To whit, the photo is of the immortal jellyfish. Put a pointy hat on it, and you can see the similarity to former TEC Bishop Schofield who also lives in a sort of bubble.

Yes, yes, I know. I will go ask for forgiveness now.
