    I don 't deny that! I just refute the idea that collectiviness is an inbedded first trait of nature. IMO it is a second stage of an evolutionary process, dividing the genome up into little pieces can be seen as a way back to the origins_ thus back to the singular cells, but cells have to work together to make a human.

    What we all forget is that everything and all start as one singularity, as one cell ! We all see cells working together, they are all inbedded in what collective is known as a human being, the one single cell is for- gotten ! The interest in one single cell can 't outweight the huge accom- plishments of finding out how other cells work together. That is my pain !
