No, I mean are we able to gain stem cells from a non-living thing?
Well cysts and tumors are for the most part considered non-living and they still produce stem cells. That is more or less what we are creating.
I see.
Then when we have the stem cell we are one step closer to creating any organ we please.
Brief me on how that works again.
Well a stem cell is also called a pluripotent cell, pluripotent means the cell is capable of affecting more than one organ or tissue. This means the cells are not limited to creating just one specific organ or tissue nor to only be able to perform one specific task. This can take us farther than we have ever gone before
