That blows my mind. What if she`s subconsciously functioning as a 16 year old but because of her development, she can`t let everyone know. It`s like Being John Malcovich 0_0

I don`t know what sounds worse to me: the excruciating boredom of eternal life or the unconsciousness of eternal death. I`d like to think that, if your loved ones were able to live forever too, that maybe living forever wouldn`t be so bad. But I can`t decide

Then again everyone professes to be aiming for eternal life in heaven, where they will somehow find satisfaction for eternity in some sense that we haven`t discovered on earth.

For now I`m going to say I`d rather live forever with my loved ones. Death is too scary. Eternal unconsciousness is too sad.

i hate to be one of those people, but it seems fake to me.... she can`t talk, like a baby, she`s 70 some inches long, like a baby, and she has the mental capacity of an infant.. this just says fake to me... sure she might recognize people she knows, i`ve seen a lot of babies do that... not with EVERYONE no, but yeah.

Yea, no sh*t, I would hate to live forever, be stuck in some dead end job for eternity, the excruciating boredom. I for one welcome death with open arms.

I remember seeing something on telly about her several years ago (I think she was about 11 or 12 at the time?). I feel sorry for her parents. As lovely as it is to have a baby...it`s nice to have them grow up too. But to have a baby for 16 years? And with all the health problems she`s had...& to not know whats wrong? That would have to get pretty frustrating after a while...

I didn`t get any sound from the vid, so it all looks pretty fake to me.

I`m pretty sure scientists are constantly searching for cases like this, but they just do not happen. If it did, all it would take is a quick mouth swap to get the DNA, take it to a lab to get it sequenced, and use a computer to check for mutations. The science behind it is complicated, but the procedure is not.

I would love to be immortal (although not like this), but from the lack of mainstream news, I do not think this is case is real at all (why don`t we see immortality in animals like worms/lab rats?).

demondice, would you want the mind of an 18 year old with the body of a baby?

no matter what you say you would not, so it may be a good thing her mind has not developed at a normal rate

I doubt that whatever they`ll find has much to do with not aging. Just because she appears to have the features of a toddler doesn`t mean that she hasn`t aged, it just means she hasn`t developed and there is a difference. And Auburnjunky, that remark about using our air.... there are many non-disabled people who could be accused of far worse. The really terible thing is that if she outlives the people who do value her, her care will be deligated to an institution where she will be treated like she is invaluable. The only "wrong" is that she will require constant care for her entire life. But hey lifers in prison don`t conrtibute much do they, and we keep a lot of them around.

Because it`s better to act on the possibility of discovering something extraordinary and find nothing, then to not act at all and miss out. This girl, while a life and precious, will never contribute to society in any function. Best to have he life potentially be worth something. Otherwise she is just stealing our air for lack of a better term.

It seems odd to me that doctors hope to unlock aging secrets from this girl. She clearly isn`t better off than any of us. Why try and propagate a deleterious genetic mutation?

If I was her parents, I would refuse to give tissue samples for genetic testing. I`m all for advancements in science and treating disease, but we have no business trying to mess with human genetics.
