Wonderful, thought-provoking...but falls short of identifying the implications of postulating the ultimate SOURCE of informational cellular flow. As a thinking person, teacher, and amateur philosopher/scientist, I must postulate a source of information to supply the teleonomy, or know-how, evident in cellular structures. I don't find it in this universe and, therefore, I assume that it is transcendent to this universe. I must believe in a living GOD who did it. What we need every time in order to produce the complex and informational strictures of life is an injection of INFORMATION into matter from an intelligent being, be it God or man.
