When you realize that the machines that we're made
of can do self-repair, can fight off infections and can
do amazing calculations, it's stupendous.
ALDA: How do you feel about the idea that you keep
getting closer and closer to in your work, that we're machines,
that nature is a big machine? Were you ever nervous about
facing that, if that's the way things are?
Not at all, because I think we're such wonderful machines.
If you have a cheesy idea of what a machine is, if you think
it's just a pop-up toaster, you know, that's not very exciting.
But when you realize that the machines that we're made of,
that they can do self-repair, they can fight off infections
and they can do amazing calculations in the brain, it's stupendous.
