Well there's the strange part. Mother and fetus never share blood unless mankind damages something to make it occur. Nutrients and waste only
exchange at the placenta. One can imagine it as the World Trade Center of the two, with cells being stock brokers and what not, yelling and exchanging
what they want. Very active straight until birth. Demand rises, so people buy. Demand drops, so people sell. Cells bring the waste to the placenta,
and the cells in the mother buy the waste for the liver. Baby's cells want oxygen, Mother's cells sell them oxygen and super low costs by getting
the worker cells of the lungs to work harder for the same cost. lol. Very dynamic system between the two. Pretty much, pregnancy is the only time when
the human body is able to physically adjust things outside the body without bodily motion. I could also get into what not with abortion and
"personhood" but that's off topic and you can PM me on that.
Ah! Extraterrestrials! A great show back in the day. It's the initial spark for a low A, high TP planet. After the initial idea I let my dreams carry
me away to worlds far off and unique and with walking squid that don't need skeletons and reptile-like-mammals with feathers. Fun times for a kid.
The planet I made was a we bit crazier where basically if you had a high power fan you could hover around and travel, breathing the atmosphere. But
later on in the planet's history it had a collision event that poisoned the atmosphere with lead that only native species can now breath.
All and all it is extremely fun to look at a new world that is 3d rather than our usual 2d world with up and down. A weightless, nutrient rich water
world with energy plentiful and life boundless. Earth's deep dark secrets are always cool to look at.
