    Quantum biology: Do weird physics effects abound in nature?

    Disappearing in one place and reappearing in another.
    Being in two places at once. Communicating information seemingly
    faster than the speed of light.

    This kind of weird behaviour is commonplace in dark, still laboratories
    studying the branch of physics called quantum mechanics, but what
    might it have to do with fresh flowers, migrating birds, and the smell
    of rotten eggs?
    Welcome to the frontier of what is called quantum biology.

    The Royal Institution has just uploaded a video to it's YouTube channel discussing quantum biology (apparently the discipline has just had its 50th birthday). The lecture is by Jim Al-Khalili, who should be familiar to viewers of BBC documentaries.

    I wouldn't say it was a particularly great lecture - Jim seemed a little nervous to me (or perhaps he's better scripted than live). Anyway, still good stuff and a fascinating topic.

    Of course.

    Long time ago, when the life only began generated
    by the chance a molecule had arisen . .
    . . we are only descendants of these first molecules . .
    . . all living beings on the Earth occurred from one
    and the same ancestors on the molecular level
    / Book: The Character of Physical Law
    Lecture 4. Feynman /

    And somebody said if we give to the simplest molecule
    hydrogen enough time - it will become a man
    ( maybe according to the law of evolution )

    If you think about it, we're just colonies.

    The Earth is populated by cells and cell colonies. Socialist cells cooperating in unison to ensure their own propagation and survival. Concepts of humanity and civilization and such are just a byproduct of the far more successful colonies that have persisted on this planet for over a billion years.

    Your comment is correct from Laplace's mechanical point of view.
