through him, what he has the illusion of accomplishing himself.
- Albert Claude

For over two billion years, through the apparent fancy
of her endless differentiations and metamorphosis the Cell,
as regards its basic physiological mechanisms,
has remained one and the same.
It is life itself, and our true and distant ancestor.
- Albert Claude

Is it absurd to imagine that our social behavior,
from amoeba to man, is also planned and dictated,
from stored information, by the cells? And that the

through heroic efforts, of bringing life to other worlds?
- Albert Claude

Life is a whim of several billion cells to be you for a while.
