"We still do not know one 1/1000 th of one percent of what nature has revealed to us. Look deep into nature, & then you will understand everything better."
– Albert Einstein
We're into nature tech, of the elusive & high need/value kind. Biology may not seem like technology, it's wet-'n-wild, somewhat uncooperative & with a mind of its own. Indeed, just observing it alter changes behavior. Yet, it is these very qualities, this flexibility & variability, that renders it quintessentially-sophisticated & gives it those amazing capabilitieso of adaptation, growth & antifragility; solid-state tech can't do that.
"The imagination of nature is far, far greater than the imagination of man."
– Richard P. Feynman
Nature is a highly enriched source of no nonsense, real world tried-&-tested biotechnologies, technologies that speak volumes. Many of her creations stand hands-down unmatched in their degree of (integrated) sophistication. Indeed, some have survived an eons-gauntlet of unforgiving harsh times. Hence, we believe it to be far more intelligent to take a page out of her play-book & tap-elevate her creations to suit our needs than seek to out-pitch her with some half-baked ideas that seem to always somehow fall off the arc, her arc. As Leslie Orgel succinctly put it: "Evolution is cleverer than you are."
"Nature shows us only the tail of the lionn 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 hunt "lions", i.e., biotech platforms, of the kind with more than one or even a few mere applications. Obviously, we'd be talking about age-old & practically end-state, say, end-game tech. Yet, they remain completely untapped, because they're elusive enigmas with codes that are, welln really tough to crack.
