can you elaborate upon the conversation?

Probably the most relevant part of the conversation was the end, when I asked him whether Chazal's belief in spontaneous generation of lice could have been incorrect. He replied in the affirmative.

P.S. On that theme, please bear in mind what Michtav Mei'eliyahu quotes from Rabbi Eliyahu Dessler: that a halacha does not necessarily change even if the scientific basis for it as described in the Talmud is incorrect.
