In Some Cases Trivia

A species of sponge called the red sponge can be pushed through a piece of fabric so that it is broken into thousands of tiny pieces. But the animal does not die. Rather, all the pieces reassemble until the sponge returns to its original form. Now, if only humans could do that when they go to pieces!

Yes if only! I would be constantly reassembling myself, hopefully into a form much improved on the present one..

I did not know that and it's another beautiful thing for my mind to ponder upon.
Thank-you!

Oh what would the world be like if we fell apart and when we came back together we were the same?
