Notable immortal species include the Turritopsis nutricula, a jellyfish which after becoming a sexually mature adult, can transform itself back into a polyp using the cell conversion process of transdifferentiation.

Turritopsis nutricula repeats this cycle, meaning that it may have an indefinite lifespan.

Martin Parr - The Magic Moment

"I believe it is the increasing wealth of the western world, which is fundamentally my main subject, is in the end the thing which will do as all in. I ‘m no exception; i live in a beautiful house, I have lots of things, I buy everything I want, I’m a big hypocrite. I’m not going to sacrifice my wealth for the sake of the planet as indeed anyone wealthy is not prepared to do. [...] The greed of you, me and the viewers of this program."
