    it says "...A LITTLE stress is all it took to make new life from old..." which makes me wonder if there is a way to 'stress' all the cells in my body to reverse the aging process (short of turning me into a hideously giant embryo/baby ) thus stop me dieing of old age by making me young again?

    Maybe the other experimenters who saw the bit about acid thought they were using LSD?
