"This is what I learned from Brad Mattson: If you put a sea sponge into a blender, it breaks up, but recombines and reforms - rises again, as it were. If you put two sponges in the blender, each will recombine only with itself; it won't get mixed up with the other. The sponge's contribution to evolution is what later went on the marquee at Delphi: know thyself. Once the sponge recombines with itself, all the cells will start to communicate with each other to plan their specializations in order to meet the needs of the organism."
Wow! Can I do as well? Today, I think like a sponge, happily floating among the coral.
