"The imagination of nature is far, far greater than the imagination of man."
– Richard P. Feynman
Nature is a rich source of no nonsense, real-world, tried-&-tested technologies. Many of her creations speak volumes, standing hands-down human unmatched. Indeed, many of her technologies have survived an eons gauntlet of harsh & unforgiving times, & for far longer then we can possibly appreciate. In many ways, she offers a quintessential template, guide-post & yard-stick on how to survive & play, flourish, in her sandbox. Hence, we're of the opinion it might be far more intelligent to take a page out of her play-book & tap-elevate her designs to suit our needs than to try to out-pitch her with half-baked, nothing-fundamentally-new-under-the-sun, that always seems to anyhow always fall off the arc, her arc. In the words of Leslie Orgel, we've conceded to respecting that nature as "... is 'cleverer' than [we] are."
"The jungle is dark but full of diamonds."
- Arthur A. Miller
We're focused on nature-tech, aka jungle-tech. Specifically, animalesque zootech. Biology may not seem like technology, its highly unpredictable, sometimes even downright proactively uncooperative & with a mind of its own. Indeed, just observing it can alter its behavior & its capabilities. Yet, it is these very elusive & enigmatic qualities, of extreme variability, adaptability & anti-fragility that impart it with such quintessentially sophisticated (integrated) qualities, & qualities we gravitate to & seek to tap-elevate.
"Nature shows us only the tail of the lion. But I have no doubt that the lion belongs with it even if he cannot reveal himself all at once. We see him only the way a louse that sits upon him would."
- Albert Einstein
We're into tapping that cryptic & enigmatic phenomenal biomedical region & all-environments gateway access platform of the mammalian metabolic spectrum that's deemed human-impossible, "forbidden", i.e., the extreme low, slow & cold end of life at a pilot light, in all it's shades & manifestations.
