The dogmatic hostility of the American scientific establishment and a lack of government funding has resulted in most of the best work on the theory stones are living creatures being done by scientists in foreign countries, such as France’s Rheshar and Escollet, or by independent researchers with no academic affiliations, like my Grandfather.

Now a potentially major breakthrough has been made by the Chinese, who are displaying a specimen of living rock in Beijing which has hair growing out of it. The rock itself resembles a cobblestone; its hair resembles Andy Warhol’s. The Chinese have given the rock the clever name "hair-growing rock", and set its value at 10 million Yuan (approximately $1.3 million), which strikes many as a tremendous bargain.
