"60-some years ago, biochemical organisms began to assemble digital computers. Now digital computers are beginning to assemble biochemical organisms. Viewed from a distance, this looks like part of a life cycle, but which part? Are biochemical organisms the larval phase of digital computers? Or are digital computers the larval phase of biochemical organisms?" - George Dyson , Turing's Cathedral: The Origins of the Digital Universe (2012)
