So life can be synthesized (or at least semi-synthesized). And I love that last bit: "all of life's processes can be subject to manipulation."

imho - 'Tis hubris to think that we might be the only ones doing the manipulating.




Life, but not as we know it: Scientists engineer first semisynthetic organism with three-base-pair DNA

Researchers at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) claim to have created the first stable semisynthetic organism with extra bases added to its genetic code. The single-celled organism is also able to continually replicate the synthetic base pair as it divides, which could mean that future synthetic organisms may be able to carry extra genetic information in their DNA sequences indefinitely.

…."We've made this semisynthetic organism more life-like," said Professor Floyd Romesberg, senior author of the new study. "We can now get the light of life to stay on. That suggests that all of life's processes can be subject to manipulation."
