And it wasn't the last time we'd break biology either. We were so certain that there were such very particular buckets to put things into, but you probably haven't even heard of some of the weird things organisms get up to. Like conjugation?? touch and exchange genetic information? Prokaryotic consortiums are like lichen but for bacteria. It's wild...wild wild times here on Planet Earth.
