Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2014-12-08]: Cellular alchemy turns skin cells into brain cells. Mature cells can be converted into stem cells by exposing them to a cocktail of chemicals that reverts them back to an embryonic-like state. Another set of chemicals is then used to turn the cells into the desired tissue type.  Old alchemists had a dream. We mocked them. Only to begin a quest to achieve whatever they were trying to achieve in a new more fancy way... No it is not a fairy tale. The Philosopher's Stone exists. It is as real as the alchemists' efforts to create it. Follow it.
