Awake after 42,000 years... Picture: The Siberian Times
The roundworms from two areas of Siberia came back to life in Petri dishes, says a new scientific study. 
‘We have obtained the first data demonstrating the capability of multicellular organisms for longterm cryobiosis in permafrost deposits of the Arctic,’ states a report from Russian scientists from four institutions in collaboration with Princetown University.
Some 300 prehistoric worms were analysed - and two ‘were shown to contain viable nematodes’.
‘After being defrosted, the nematodes showed signs of life,’ said a report today from Yakutia, the area where the worms were found.
‘They started moving and eating.’

Which begs the question "what is life" Is it simply electrical impulses ? 42,000 years..... let that sink in....  A couple things come to mind, one immortality and two is there a substance that reanimates life ? 

Is this quality present in current life forms or peculiar to ancient organisms?
