comment What happens to fecal matter if it's continually re-eaten?
The author seems aware that the person would clearly die from lack of nutrition but is more wondering about the theoretical result. I think you should add that after continuous cycles of digestion, the fat and protein components of faeces would at some point be completely eliminated. So would the bacteria, but while passing through the intestinal environment, new bacteria would inevitably get mixed into the mass again. Thus, the result would be a mixture of undigestible fibre and bacteria.

comment Biological advantage of electric synapses
I can't answer this but just to consider: firstly, this may be a way to overcome the limit of length of an individual cell before intracellular transport of proteins and organelles becomes impracticable. Aside from this, the difference between one long neuron and two connected ones is that they are separated by a membrane and can have different interiors. This means different internal cell states e.g. signalling molecules, ion concentrations,...
