Potentially a lot.
Being able to undifferentiate one's cells and allow them to be reconfigured would be huge. Learning exactly how this is triggered, and replicating it in higher animals, could have a profound impact on medicine.
It would be like a starving man transforming himself into a child or two. Even though the man is starving, he's still made of way more stuff than a healthy child is. That's a very rough analogy, but it should get the point across.
No.
Not exactly, but this process would essentially kill him, if the full equivalent could happen to a human.
Everything anyone is, as a person, is part of the physical structure of their brain. Your body completely undifferentiated, then reformed itself from scratch, you'd be a blank slate.
The idea would be to selectively undifferentiate cells, so that missing parts and other serious damage could be regenerated. I don't think most people would want to clone themselves at the cost of their own lives.

This is exactly why I will never use a teleport

next time anyone goes swimming or surfing, be sure to keep a bottle of your or anyone else's urine if you want to live.

that's right

Nice! Use it on humans tongue.gif

Allthough I would be pleased allready if life was just backwards...

First you DIE! (so that's that)

Then you'll become younger, and younger, and ...

You still have to work, but you'll earn the most of your whole life!!!

Still getting younger you have to go to school, we're you can have fun and do/try stupid things etc...

Even more younger and they start to do things FOR you!

Heck you can even suck a tit once and a while (for those who don't have a GF tongue.gif)

And eventually you'll end in a splashing ORGASM!


Now how about that, jellyfish!

Not too surprised considering jellyfish have no brain or central nervous system to speak of. They have no capacity to store memories or learn anything, 100% instinct-driven. So resetting to a younger state, while nifty, would only be possible with something as incredibly simple as a jellyfish tongue.gif

But then you run the risk of attracting bears. Bear Grylls.

Make sure vital organs are intact and not affected by it while the cells are renewed and strengthened rather than just reversed.

Scientists don't learn stuff from useful things like this, they learn stuff from having 500 people smoke for 20 years and then become vegetarians for the next 20 to tell us in 2020 that smoking is bad mmkay.
