Dr. Frankenstein, I presume?

He would be proud of these men and women.

Artificial life. AND IT REPRODUCES!

Single cell only at this time. But it will lead to more.
Could be scary. True designer babies. Or a true cataclysmically dangerous disease.

Or then again, specifically engineered bacteria…. Stuff that would eat cellulose and excrete oils. Or eat one mineral and excrete another. (gold???) Bugs that eat our worst toxic chemicals and reduce them to benign feedstock for our manufactories.

It’s like something out of a 50’s science fiction novel.
Ether way, an interesting first step.

  1. Won't be gold–can't transform elements through chemical or biological processes, you're limited to rearranging the elements into other molecules.

    (and your blog posting software is annoying–the only blog I'm aware of where I have to post, then wait and do the word verification. I wind up hitting post, then switching tabs before I see the verification, and not noticing that I didn't really comment until later)

  2. Now that I've complained about you specifically, I've run into several other Blogger sites set up the same way. I still don't like it, but it appears that it isn't anything you've done.
