The original thought came from my snowflake idea that turbulence is important for life. So we have dust bunnies instead of noodles.
Biologists don't do math and physics, they gave up on that in high school. Also 'origin of life' just doesn't get the PR departments of the universities excited. Everybody just accepts some grand theory like 'Life' came from space. Yeah!
Right now, the 'war of molecules' is against the elements, soon it will get vicious. :)
