    Sooner or later every alien organism escapes and multiplies out of control displacing existing organisms

    LOL. We are already symbiotic creatures hosting trillions of bacteria in and on each of our bodies. It's best to get along with them.

    "It is estimated that 500 to 1000 species of bacteria live in the human gut[5] and a roughly similar number on the skin.[6][7] Bacterial cells are much smaller than human cells, and there are at least ten times as many bacteria as human cells in the body (approximately 1014 versus 1013).[8][9] The mass of microorganisms are estimated to account for 1-3% total body mass. [10] Though members of the flora are found on all surfaces exposed to the environment (on the skin and eyes, in the mouth, nose, small intestine), the vast majority of bacteria live in the large intestine."

    Love this quote from Venter:

    "the same way we store fat, only that’s just to get us through TV shows."
