1. Hypothesis:
Dr. Heidegger had water from the Fountain of Youth. He was expecting thathis four old friends could accept his experiment and drink from the water so that they could be young again. He showed his friends how a flower that he had for half a century could beblossomed again just by putting it in the water.
