I think this page has some of the best references regarding glass sponge.
Is it not altogether amazing that man can produce glass – in a blast furnace – and yet the lowly sponge can – in sophistication & detail – do so at much lower temperatures? I need to have a neo-darwinian explanation from someone out there.
How can submicroscopic, protein-based machines fine-tune themselves?
Help me in my unbelief.
