Out-of-the-Jungle Biotech R&D
"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled." – Richard P. Feynman
We specialize in nature-innovated biotech R&D – outta-the-jungle biotech. We've wide-ranging interests but we're especially into human bio-enhancement because we believe the human asset is central to what happens downstream & pretty much everywhere, both good & not so good. We focus on nature-tech because we believe nature speaks volumes, certainly she resonates with us. Specifically, we believe it to be far better, more intelligent, to tap her ready-made creations & attempt to elevate them than seek to out-pitch by reinvent already perfectly good-working wheels, wheels that anyhow, inevitably fall off the arc, her arc, & out of favor. Fundamentally, we believe there is nothing new under the sun that nature has not likely already had time to better invent.
"We still do not know one thousandth of one percent of what nature has revealed to us. Look deep into nature, & then you will understand everything better." – Albert Einstein
Biology may not seem like technology, it's not hard, it may even look simple, & yet, quite the contrary, it's quintessentially-sophisticated, just wet-'n-squishy, wild & shape-shifts. We believe, we've still a lot to learn, & we candidly recognize that in many ways we're hands-down no match, especially given her eons of non-stop-consummate R&D tinkering. Leslie Orgel said it succinctly, "evolution is cleverer than you are".
Our measure of success: if it's tech that's survived a real world gauntlet spanning millions, maybe even billions of years of harsh, punishing, & cut-throat-unforgiving treatment we consider it no-nonsense, real-deal tried-&-tested.
“I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful – an endless prospect of magic & wonder.”
– Ansel Adams
We're especially focused on targeting those rare, the rarest, long-elusive, centuries-elusive, & enigmatic marvels & wonders of nature, & of the kind that have long-been known to possess holy-grail, sky's the limit, capabilities, what we call Peter Pan technologies, but which remain completely untapped. We're especially into those bio-logical phenomena that are more than merely just robust or have one, maybe two singular applications. Rather, we're into anti-fragile & eXtreme broad-spectrum & cross-cutting, the type of phenomena that gain in power & function from repeated use, even abuse, & have near-all-weather omnipotent applications. Obviously, we're talking about fundamental Big bio platforms that are very age-old evolutionary meaning, enduring & practically everlasting, yet also very rare. For all practical purposes they are end-state & end-game, & where it's really all at.
