Totipotency, i.e., Cell Differentiation, is common in most (if not all) instances of multicellular life.
There have been instances, however, of unicelluar organisms transforming between cell types between generations. There are documented species of Amoebas which transform between Cysts and Flagellates.
This means that unless there was convergent evolution, Totipotency existed in cells BEFORE multicellularity.
In layman's terms, Stem Cells existed before multicelluar lifeforms existed.

Does this mean telepathy is possible?
Feb. 28, 2013 — Researchers have electronically linked the brains of pairs of rats for the first time, enabling them to communicate directly to solve simple behavioral puzzles. A further test of this work successfully linked the brains of two animals thousands of miles apart -- one in Durham, N.C., and one in Natal, Brazil.

I'm 18 years old, and I started getting episodes of insomnia in early January (I was 17 at the time, my birthday is in February) and in February it developed into something more persistent. I tried diphenhydramine as well as melatonin and nothing seems to be helping me. I feel deprived of motivation, no libido, and dumber than ever before. It is now March, and although the insomnia has been somewhat alleviated, I still don't get enough sleep during the night. I have accumulated an overwhelming amount of sleep debt and I feel absolutely dead mentally. To worsen my situation I have school to tend to as well, (and they are AP classes). I want to return to my original mental state very much. I wanted to know whether insomnia causes permanent/irreversible brain damage (especially at my age since I'm only 18 and my brain is still evolving). I sleep better now, but I still feel tremendously burdened mentally by brain fog due to my sleep debt. Please reply asap. Your feedback will be immensely appreciated.
