Slimy chunks of human gut can now grow up and get to work inside of mice.

Transplanted into rodents, tiny balls of tissue balloon into thumb-sized nuggets that look and act like real human intestines, researchers report October 19 in Nature Medicine.

The work is the first time scientists have been able to transform adult cells into working bits of intestines in living animals. These bits could help scientists tailor treatments for patients with bowel diseases, such as Crohn’s disease or cancer, says study coauthor Michael Helmrath, a pediatric surgeon at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

I have a crazy idea.

That the environment shapes everything.
And given that we shape the environment, it seems that we shape everything.
Or that everything shapes everything, including us.

Dasein (being here and now < υπ-άρχω) and Being (existing < εξ-ίσταμαι – floating above the sea level, aren’t we all waves which all believe that they are “different” even though the ocean below unites us?) as the same thing. Entangled in such a way that it makes no difference any more. One or another. In an eternal loop…

I have a crazy idea.

That we just are our environment.
That our environment is us…
