You guys are all debating the merits of the ecosystem, and how such a thing is even possible, but I can't seem to get past the mad scientist looking hobbit holding the bottle. I mean come on, that man looks like science.

who needs a time machine that only goes back a week (from the original date) when you have FJ getting front page reposts on the front page again

Guys, correct me if I'm wrong about this.

We're looking at a closed system.
We know the entropy inside it can only ever increase, which, according to the Gibbs-Helmholtz formula G = H-T*S inevitably leads to the decrease of free energy until it reaches a level too low to sustain life.

In short, though this system can sustain itself for very long time, it is inevitably doomed from the moment the cork is put in.
Kinda depressing.

Found the kink, it's not a closed system.
Heat and light can enter, which can raise both temperature and enthalpy.

So as long as there is an external power source, this plant may life indefinitely.

But the heat and light that enters is in a closed system....I think aha

It is a closed system where energy can move in and out. He meant that it wasn't an isolated system (one where both energy and matter cannot enter/escape) but got confused.

Man I wish I could life indefinitely.

Theoretically it's possible; what we call "age" is a bunch of cellular defects accumulating until they kill you.
All of those defects could be reversed in theory, there is no reason any life-form cannot be made to have an unlimited life-expectancy.
Our only problem is that we don't have the technology yet.

A guy called Aubrey deGrey heads a project about exactly this, you might wanna check it out if you like this kind of stuff.
Even though the guy's kinda weird, his work is fascinating.

Thanks mate, I'm a major science geek though so I basically already know all this stuff, I was just making fun of your grammar :b

Life indefinitely

Ah. Thanks for pointing that out.
I'm doing my best, but my English is not as good as I'd like it to be.

This is completely off topic but people like you make me feel stupid. But you impress me at the same time. Stay classy.

I just had to study this stuff nonstop for a chemistry exam.
Anyone can do this.

yup, you just need the determination

The only reason it survives is because it essentially "eats" dead parts of itself and absorbing the necessary nutrients from it. If it weren't a plant, that would be some ****** up **** .

Most Metal plant ever.

Also energy in form of light and heat from the outside.
Otherwise it would not be able to perform the chemical reactions necessary to sustain itself.

We made these in science class in 7th grade, but they got all moldy and gross within a few weeks. :[

And this is how the universe was formed.

Soon a tiny civilization will form in there and he will be their god.
