Hidden in the microverse all around you, there is a merciless war being fought by the true rulers of this planet, microorganisms. Amoebae, protists, bacteria, archaea and fungi compete for resources and space. And then there are the strange horrors that are viruses, hunting everyone else. Not even being alive, they are the tiniest, most abundant and deadliest beings on earth, killing trillions every day. Not interested in resources, only in living things to take over. Or so we thought.
It turns out that there are giant viruses that blur the line between life and death - and other viruses hunting them.

To be honest, if there happened an extinction so severe that it wipes out all animals and plants, viruses would possibly evolve to become new era ecosystems. It would be easier, cause they already exist and there are more organic resources to take advantage of. 10.000.000 years would be enough for new life to emerge, being second row of simple invertibrates with their own ecosystems. It would be even more interesting if it happened to animals like insects, how would they look after filling all the nishes?

She might have "aphantasia " or possibly a case of "snobberitisbitchis". The first term is the inability to imagine imagery within one's mind. They cannot recall images of something.

@Alexandru Tapuleasa I agree entirely,whenever I've watched a subject video on DE-vid by an uploader and it's on a subject I've been into for years and years and have learnt a lot,whenever I watch one of these videos they always get things wrong,then you see people in the comment section praising them on how much they know,when it's clear they have just watched a couple of documentaries on it or something and maybe books,enough to get a fair idea but no more,its kind of annoying and I even get annoyed at myself for acting a pompous ass on whatever it is for letting it wind my boring self up. I'll put all the things they said wrong then end up deleting what I've said in the end because you don't get anywhere because the uploader has a nice cosy club of window lickers to blank and ignore you.

I'd say because they needlessly anthropomorphize everything and force a lot of false ideas and concepts that have nothing to do with the way things work just to pull off their cute and simple façade. These videos should be targeting preschool children, but they are used by adults as a source of accurate information on which they base their decisions. Then they wonder why some people are ignorant about viruses. They probably think of CoV as one of these cute little pets :D

A esperar de nuevo, sólo espero que no se tarden meses en traducirlo en español 😞, está serie de videos sobre el sistema inmune son los más geniales y cuesta un poco ver que ahora algunos videos ya llevan meses subidos y aún no están subtitulados al español. 😢

We are Virus Makers and makers of all the things. We are one thing... Our minds make these things and are these things. We just witness a person and enter them, as viruses, and they sense it and their minds create the antivirus virus and interact with the other being. And it is amazing what can be done with this knowledge. As there is a guiding mind in this life.

hey @kurzgesagt I was reading about the origin of life and learned all DNA on Earth amount to 50 billions tonnes. That raised a question: what is the color of DNA? How a big clump of DNA would look like? Thanks
Alpha Vor 3 Monate
That's actually quite complicated, since DNA is made from different components depending on the organism. They're similar enough to all be DNA, but different.

Aside from parasitic zombie-fungi and viruses looking like satellites and other space cosmos vehicles, didn't expect some to behave like actual Zergs from Starcraft.

Is living versus dead meant to be living versus non-living? I have to assume a tree and a 2x4 isn’t the comparison, rather a cell and a rock?

This is some Game of Thrones level of drama between viruses and giruses and bacteria and all the rest of them 😆 once again, the microcosm and macrocosm reflect each other beautifully.

Imagine a movie where a virus evolves to obtain all the biological bits and bobs of a creature then it can spread the virus to anything just from a scratch or bite from it's husk that it has complete control over, kind of like a zombie virus.
