    Some thoughts on Rensberger’s "Life Itself"
    Somewhere in the book the author mentions: “Human body as a republic of cells”

    During this part of the text, the cells are addressed with qualities such as selflessness. I think the same way we formed societies for our own individual benefits different cells of the human body might “know” that this is for their own good to collaborate within the context of the human body. But the concepts of cells being of different “character” really amazes me! How for example cells from the brain when cultured form networks and cells form the skin try to form skin even when they’re apart from their natural habitat! Might they belong to different stereotypes as we humans do? Are stereotypes a “natural” thing as a result?
    How come these cells came along in the first place? Wandering in space they found each other randomly and based on their different characteristics discovered that they could work together as a body?!
    Or they were there and in the context of their “social” life within the human body, little by little they changed just like couples do?
