I just had a deep thought...

If women are born with all their eggs, then that means technically I've been alive since 1953 (when my mom was born), not 1980 (when I was born). Mind BLOWN!

I think I'd take the word "deep" out of your headline.

Since I doubt your mother was born with her eggs fertilized, I think you can still count from 1980.

I've been alive forever and I wrote the very first song.

But an egg is a living cell, R3. And it eventually became me. So one of my cells has been alive since 1953.

Plus the cell your Mom was born from was alive when her mother was born. Hell, we are all as old as the first human.

Are you by any chance VERY stoned right now?

Then your mom is a murderer for not bringing all those eggs to fruition.

OP, curious as to your general beliefs. I mean it.

by Anonymousreply 1302/01/2013

That's actually an amazing thought. I'm an eldergay, and the gamete that became 1/2 of me has been alive since 1927. I've lived through the Depression, and I didn't even know it!

Fractals! Or something.

by Anonymousreply 1502/01/2013

It is a little bit mind blowing isnt it OP, that you were an ovum in 1953? I've been one since 1945. Although I wouldn't go quite so far as to say you were "alive". Now OP consider the how many eggs your mother had and the likelihood that you, of all of them, was fertilized in 1980. If your mother had said to your dad the day you were conceived "oh not tonight dear I have a headache" you wouldn't exist.

You were only half alive because you weren't even sperm yet until your father produced it from his body.

by Anonymousreply 1902/01/2013

Why would you want to make yourself older? Stick with '80.

by Anonymousreply 2002/01/2013

Has anyone pointed out yet that the mother's ova weren't fertilized yet? I bet I'm the very first to point that out.

by Anonymousreply 2102/01/2013

I too was born in 1980.

In a related question, if all your body's cells die every seven years, how are memories preserved? Does that mean if you don't use a memory in seven years it will be lost? How mechanically does it work?

by Anonymousreply 2402/01/2013

Believing you come from an egg is an heathen belief. It is not true. Eggs were a heathen fertility thing before we were informed by the Bibble that we come from heaven in breath of God. God does all the heavy breathing necessary to create life.

by Anonymousreply 2502/01/2013

What if the egg is fertilized and frozen and then not implanted until say 10yrs later you could maybe think that? But probably not.

by Anonymousreply 2602/01/2013

R24, Perhaps memories can be shifted around like files on a hard drive. And since not all of your cells die off at the same time, this allows them to remain intact over time. But you just made me think of yet another question: If it's true that our body's cells die and are entirely replaced every seven years, and brain cells supposedly don't regenerate, then shouldn't we all be brain dead after seven years?

Pssst, R25. Don't tell the fundamentalists.

by Anonymousreply 2902/01/2013

Actually, brain cells CAN regenerate via lion's mane mushroom. Mushrooms are the closest cellularly to humans, and why they can be especially healing. There has been international research (IOW not American) showing lion's mane not only stopping Alzheimer's progression, but reversing it. Too bad you can't trademark a mushroom, or it would already be an available medical option. You can buy lion's mane pills, though.

For starters, it's not mechanical.

I actually was born long before my birth date too. I have millions of brothers and sisters. You can tell we are all related because we are all good swimmers and have a tail.

And here's another way to look at it: we are not simply flesh, bodies, or matter. We are spirit animating bodies. When your parts were only cells inside your mother, your spirit/soul/whatever-word-you-like-to-use-here was not there yet. Without the animation of matter, your individual life does not exist.

Your cells wouldn't even be able to talk, or bottom, or anything, without YOU being in there.

by Anonymousreply 3602/01/2013

R36, I like how that rolls off your tough so easily, "wouldn't even be able to talk, or bottom, or anything" LOL

OP, you would get a better response if you had said you just had a deep throat.

R37, it wasn't my tongue it rolled out of. But thanks. :D

So according to your logic OP, I have been around since 1927.

Here's a scary one for you:

Eventually, every living creature on the planet will have been born after the Trinity event on july 16, 1945. We're all coated with nuclear stuff that never existed before.
