After seeing pics of people that have achieved massive PE gains—I would be inclined to believe scar tissue is not playing much of a role in their gains, even on a microscopic level.
The Africans that wear bands around their necks and keep adding them one by one until their neck is freakishly long or those South American natives that wear bigger & bigger pieces of wood in their bottom lip until their bottom lip becomes huge seem to apply principles that are effective in PE. I think the whole thesis of Firegoat post is to discuss the possible scientific explanations for growth.
The more I read the more clear it seems to me that scar tissue is something I will want to avoid. The tissue (as stated in other posts) is 10 times stronger than normal tissue, and it tends to shrink after it develops. This gives me serious doubts about anyone advancing a theory that some kind of scar tissue formation on a micro or macro level can play a significant beneficial role in gains.
