Has anyone else seen the movie 'life' yet? I wonder how plausible the creature is?
-it looks like the plastic thing that holds beer together and that invariably ends up around the mouth of a dolphin.... does that thing have a name?
- it eats but does not 'poop'
- we are told it expressed all genetic information in each cell.. "It is all brain, and all muscle' (and presumably all kidney-analogue, all liver-analogue). This doesn't make much sense to me.. i would have thought that the brain would clearly need a different higher-level 'tissue' structure vs muscles. Little point outsourcing your cognition to your liver? I wonder what a human cell would look like if it expressed EVERY gene at once??
