Here's a mind-blower for you:

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn25894-meet-the-electric-life-forms-that-live-on-pure-energy.html#.U88G3WK9KSN

What are the potentials for this discovery? Could it cause risk to we who are ugly bags of water? Did Tesla intuit this as his power that flows everywhere through the earth, or elsewhere?

This seems to jump the possibilities for life elsewhere exponentially.

Real aliens!

Fun!

Thanks for that interesting . I wonder if they could be used as a from of battery ?

The article didn't say that but if they ca absorb power and then be made to give it up that sounds like a battery to my .

The cosmos is truely strange .A lot of breakthrough's are made just studying nature .

wings by studying birds ! just to name 1

Because electrical bacteria have been known to exist. Just not talked about.

Unlike any other living thing on Earth, electric bacteria use energy in its purest form – naked electricity in the shape of electrons harvested from rocks and metals. We already knew about two types, Shewanella and Geobacter. Now, biologists are showing that they can entice many more out of rocks and marine mud by tempting them with a bit of electrical juice. Experiments growing bacteria on battery electrodes demonstrate that these novel, mind-boggling forms of life are essentially eating and excreting electricity.


USC is involved. It is real and quite amazing.

Here's another source:

I hope I can find it on Roku.
