possible solution. That is: "we don't know what in nature generates this phenomenon, but it could be something as simple ...

Human Genome Project
... up to as high as 100,000.
The goals of the original HGP were not only to determine all 3 billion base pairs in the human genome with a minimal
error rate, but also to identify all the genes in this vast amount of data. This part of the project is still ongoing although a preliminary count ...
... can take optimal advantage of light. The slight separation of the cells provides maximal absorption of carbon dioxide. This separation must be minimal
to afford capillary action for water distribution. In order to adapt to their different environment (such as sun or shade), plants had to adapt ...
... a healthful and nutritionally complete diet can be attained without animal-based food.
The closer the food is to its native state -- with minimal
heating, salting and processing -- the greater will be the benefit."(Cornell Chronicle 28/6/01)
