Life imitates Grant Morrison

Via Foe’s del.icio.us, Wired News report on findings by Imperial College:

” Most of the cells in your body are not your own, nor are they even human. They are bacterial. From the invisible strands of fungi waiting to sprout between our toes, to the kilogram of bacterial matter in our guts, we are best viewed as walking “superorganisms,” highly complex conglomerations of human, fungal, bacterial and viral cells.”

I find this kind of awe-inspiring and lovely. We’re all just the filth.
