It is the moment before genesis. The ecoforming cluster is ready to seed the red planet with the replicator globules, an union between nature and technology that will birth something new and unlimited.

The expansion of life over the universe is a beginning, not an end. At the same time as life is extending its habitat quantitatively, it will also be changing and evolving qualitatively into new dimensions of mind and spirit that we cannot imagine. The acquistion of new territory is important, not as an end in itself, but as a means to enable life to experiment with intelligence in a million forms.'
Freeman Dyson
