"The brick walls are there for a reason. The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They’re there to stop the other people."

Turritopsis dohrnii otherwise known as the Immortal Jellyfish is an amazing little jellyfish found in the Mediterranean Sea and the waters off the coast of Japan.

These tiny jellyfish have a remarkable ability, they can revert back to the Colonial Polyp stage, making them virtually immortal. Once they have reached sexual maturity they release themselves from wherever they are latched and live life as a jellyfish, if they are threatened by environmental stress, attack or are sick or old they will revert back to their colonial polyp stage and form clones of themselves.

Although they are theoretically immortal, most will succumb to either disease or Predation from turtles while in the medusa (adult jellyfish) stage before they can return to polyp form.
