Always wrong. Always alive.

When life started on this planet, if a critic had been around, it might have seemed wrong, so very wrong.

All these molecules had been liquidly being around each other for a very long time and maintained inertness. It was the way things were and had been at great length.

Then some of the molecules, taking advantage of randomness and vast time, connected in a way that made there be life.

And here we are.

Connections never before seen may be our job though they can look odd, or depending on your mood, wrong.
