    Great post, Darksyde, but if I may I'd like to make a few small corrections.  The word is blastocyst, not blastocyte.  And a human oocyte, or egg, is about the size of the period at the end of these sentences; a blastocyst is considerably larger, as it's quite a number of cells.  It's all relative, though, given the sizes involved!

    •  How is... (0+ / 0-)

      the blastocyst considerably larger than the egg or zygote? It's only slightly larger in diameter, and that is only because it contains space without cells - the blastocoel.

      Think about it: if it's larger, where did the mass come from?

    •  the size of... (0+ / 0-)

      the period at the end of this sentence.

      <font size="+1">Or perhaps the period at the end of this sentence.</font>

      <font size ="+2">Or maybe the size of the period at the end of this sentence....</font>
