"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

 

Jungle Innovations, specializes in radical/transformative, so-called, skunkworks innovation, i.e., high need/value. More specifically, of the phenomenal nature biotech kind. We especially focus on human biological mods/enhancement because we believe nature is a highly enriched source of real-world tried-&-tested biotechnologies waiting to still be mined, technologies that speak volumes, speak to us. Biology may not seem like technology, it's wet-'n-wild, somewhat unpredictable, sometimes even uncooperative & volatile with a mind of its own. Yet, it is this very quality, this variability that renders it quintessentially-sophisticated & gives it the most amazing capabilities, like, growth & gain-of-function; solid-state tech doesn't (yet) do that. This non-stop-consummate & unmatched evolutionary tweaking, tinkering, is what gives it near-omnipotence.

Nature as Inspiration, Biomimicry & Yard-Stick

"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled." – Richard P. Feynman


Many of nature's creations are hands-down, bar-none, unmatched in their degree of integrated sophistication. Indeedn, some have survived an eons gauntlet of unrelenting, say, cut-throat-unforgiving hard times. We are acutely cognizant that we are no match for her in so very many ways, finding ourselves in a classic example of Achilles versus the tortoise: you can run, but you can never catch-up because she too can run, does run, sometimes fast. 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 rather than seek to out-pitch her with half-baked mimics, i.e., effectively trying to reinvent already perfectly good-working wheels, wheels that always eventually seem to run off the track & off her arc. As  Leslie Orgel succinctly put it: "Evolution is cleverer than you are."  

Phenomenal Nature-Marvels & Enigmatic Wonders

"I believe the world is incomprehensibly beautiful – an endless prospect of magic & wonder.” 

– Ansel Adams


We exclusively focus on those rare, long-elusive & enigmatic phenomenal marvels & wonders of nature that possess unmatched & untapped, sky's the limit or holy-grail capabilities. These aren't biotechnologies with merely one or a few high-value applications, rather, they're extremely broad-spectrum with profoundly cross-cutting capabilities; they are platform. Obviously, we're talking about age-old-enduring, practically everlasting & end-state biotechnologies that are so deep-core fundamental that without them life seems to struggle, succumb & perish.
