Richard Dawkins – The heart of every living thing

Share this quote:
Richard DawkinsWhat lies at the heart of every living thing is not a fire, not warm breath, not a “spark of life.” It is information, words, instructions. If you want a metaphor, don’t think of tires and sparks and breath. Think, instead, of a billion discrete, digital characters carved in tablets of crystal. If you want to understand life, don’t think about vibrant, throbbing gels and oozes, think about information technology.

Richard Dawkins   (1941 -)
The Blind Watchmaker
