Matter to Life

Matter to Life?

Chemistry in transformation
to life..
This is assumption
of science's aim today..
The research direction
begins with matter as
Matter over Mind..
The new science
of Consciousness
clears the air:
Matter and Mind
this temporary duality
is not separate
from Consciousness...!

What is the recipe for life? If you were to build a cell from scratch, what ingredients would you need? And what kind of environment would you need to cook inanimate matter into a living cell? These are the questions that occupy Harvard biochemist Jack Szostak, as he imagines the dynamic world where life was born.

What Szostak is interested in finding out is how many different recipes there are for making life. How did life arise here on Earth, and might some other planet build life in a different way? Work in his lab is starting to yield some answers.
"We're looking at a very narrow slice of the whole problem," Szostak says. "We assume we have the chemical building blocks of life: the question we're looking at is what do we need to do to make these chemicals get together and work like a cell?" Szostak, despite his humility, is a formidable figure in biochemistry-- a Nobel laureate, Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and a researcher at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Massachusetts General Hospital-- and the project he is engaged in is, as he puts it, "one of the most interesting problems in chemistry." "The transition from chemistry to biology,"-- from matter to life....

to express differently:
Matter is illusion
in seeming
