The discussion we've been having with the DTs has me studying abiogenesis in wiki. It seems most plausible that ocean water would be involved, using the idea that we know drives so much at the cellular level - diffusion causing concentration gradients that lead to electrical charge gradients.
I didn't realize there were so many seemingly plausible theories.
It is also interesting with 1 theory that by using math, and extrapolating back in complexity , there is not enough time on earth, so starts the theory of necessary extraterrestrial life. Wiki also says that organic compounds are relatively common in space.
A 2001 experiment led by Jason Dworkin subjected a frozen mixture of water, methanol, ammonia and carbon monoxide to UV radiation, mimicking conditions found in an extraterrestrial environment. This combination yielded large amounts of organic material that self-organised to form bubbles or micelles when immersed in water. Dworkin considered these bubbles to resemble cell membranes that enclose and concentrate the chemistry of life, separating their interior from the outside world.
Also mentioned is the Krebs cycle and photosynthesis, as possible very early parts of evolution.
Such cool theories, and we spend so much money on bullets and bombs.
