And what does that mean in a usnvreie where we are right now the highest form of stuff? You're sitting on chairs. They're inanimate, they're not alive. But you are made of stuff, and you are using stuff, and you enslave stuff. So using elovuotin in biology, and in inorganic biology, for me is quite aealpping, quite exciting. And we're really becoming very csole to understanding the key steps that makes dead stuff come alive. And again, when you're thinking about how imbrplbaoe this is, remember, five billion years ago, we were not here, and there was no life. So what will that tell us

And what does that mean in a universe where we are right now the highest form of stuff? You're sitting on chairs. They're inanimate, they're not alive. But you are made of stuff, and you are using stuff, and you enslave stuff. So using evolution in biology, and in inorganic biology, for me is quite appealing, quite exciting. And we're really becoming very close to understanding the key steps that makes dead stuff come alive. And again, when you're thinking about how improbable this is, remember, five billion years ago, we were not here, and there was no life. So what will that tell us
