The best-paid job for a special task

Imagine that a world famous company would announce the vacancy for several jobs in one of the most notorious and known top manager headhunter magazines. The candidates would have to have a lot of talent and have studied at the most prestigious universities, and the salary would be exceptional. Initial salary 150 thousand dollars per month for each talent hiring. Then professionals  would make an appointment, and visit the  human resources department of the company, and the director would receive them and give  the best treatment and attention, and tell  that the job requirements would be for people with  doctorate and postgraduate degrees in several areas, to carry out the following disciplines and tasks:

working as general manager CEO
know  12 languages fluently, and know how to write in Roman alphabet, Japanese kanji, and Chinese, Korean, and Greek.
Know the most advanced computer programming language, at least ten of them
have a doctorate in linguistics
Have a diploma in translation of various languages
Be a specialist in computer sciences in several areas,
doctorate in physics and chemistry,
electronics engineer
be a robotic engineer and having software programming experience of robots
packaging engineer
mechanical engineer, assembly and fabrication of complex machines, and
engineer in power generation, and
traffic coordinator,
assembly line coordinator and organizer
design engineer and installation of communication systems
organizational engineer, warehouse storage management of materials and products, and
engineer in quality control, and
recycling, and implementation of waste disposal systems.
Security Systems Engineer
engineer for implementation of Implosion methodologies of factories in a controlled manner

So someone of the candidates asked: Sir, please tell us,  what would be the task for the job in your company, demanding all these disciplines and all this knowledge?

The RH guy would reply:

We need a team to develop the construction of 50 factories in 50 countries, each with different output capacities and product manufacturing, each with the following requirements of implementation : 

- invention and installation of software, more versatile than any program ever invented, and more robust and error-free than any other code system among 1 million alternatives - using a communication protocol that wastes much less space from anyone invented previously
- development of the smallest hard disk, smaller than ever invented before,  to install the software
- then use this software to program the complex instructions for manufacturing a self-replicating factory. We estimate that you will need to work out the amount of information that fits into about 1500 books, each with 300 pages, 300,000 characters per book, each containing the complex instructions needed to create this factory. That's the minimal requirement. 
 - develop sophisticated machines and production systems and assembly lines with high robustness, flexibility and efficiency capable of running at least 1500 processes in parallel. Raw materials will have to be transformed into final products in a series of operations. The system should only produce in response to actual demand, not in anticipation of expected demand, as a result of overproduction.
- The system will also have to know how to use quality management techniques, and able to prevent defects at various stages of its process, using inspection processes and thus guaranteeing almost 100% quality, and reducing manufacturing errors from 10 billion to only 1 error per production cycle, eliminating all others.
- The ability to recycle worn machines. The ability to quickly build a new production line, as needed, 100% automated. The system can not wait until some machine fails, but it has to be able to replace it long before it has a chance to break. And, secondly, the program must be able to completely recycle the machine that is taken out of production. The components of this recycling process can also be used to create different production machines. A new capacity must be able to be installed quickly to meet new demands, also autonomously. At the same time, there can be no inactive machines taking up space or building up important building blocks. Maintenance is a positive "side effect" of the continuous machine renovation process.
- The system needs to be simplified to the maximum.
- several compartments will have to be installed in the factory, and complex communication systems that govern basic activities and coordinate several actions at the same time. Complex signaling networks will have to be installed.
- construction and installation of the factory building and walls that make the separation of the interior from the factory for protection and with gates that allow entry and exit of load, recognition mechanisms that allow only the right load, and take it to the correct specific places and lines and cargo carriers that have brands that recognize where to discard the cargo where it is needed, clean up the trash, and have recycling bins, warehousing departments,
- Implementation of an energy production system, and systems capable of moving energy to where it is needed, and finally
- the factory has to be able to self-replicate.

Now imagine, after the first candidates,  a group of uneducated, illiterate people without barely able to read their own name, would appear in the RH office. The RH manager would immediately recognize that these guys are the false candidates, but, out of education,  would begin to explain the task, Johnny then says : Hey boss, the salary is amazing, and what I have to do, somehow, I and the other candidates here will get it right. One way or another, with a little more or less effort, we'll get there, isn't it? and what we do not know, we learn bit by bit !! Let's try a little bit here ..... a little bit there ..... with luck, what works, we keep. What does not work, we discard - we'll tinker here and there... now - hey,  the salary is great  ... give us the job, please !!

The moral of the story should be evident. The factory is living cells, which have the highly advanced production capabilities as described. It would take an entire team of the highest skilled and educated professionals to create such a factory. But there is a huge number of people, that are confident that an uneducated team of people that cannot even read and write, ( equivalent to chance, or random lucke unguided events )  are capable of the task to create the most advanced and complex factory in the universe. Go figure....

Michael Denton writes in Evolution: A Theory In Crisis:
“To grasp the reality of life as it has been revealed by molecular biology, we must magnify a cell a thousand million times until it is twenty kilometers in diameter and resembles a giant airship large enough to cover a great city like London or New York. What we would then see would be an object of unparalleled complexity and adaptive design. On the surface of the cell we would see millions of openings, like the port holes of a vast space ship, opening and closing to allow a continual stream of materials to flow in and out. If we were to enter one of these openings we would find ourselves in a world of supreme technology and bewildering complexity.The complexity of the simplest known type of cell is so great that it is impossible to accept that such an object could have been thrown together suddenly by some kind of freakish, vastly improbable, event. Such an occurrence would be indistinguishable from a miracle. The cell is a veritable micro-miniaturized factory containing thousands of exquisitely designed pieces of intricate molecular machinery, made up altogether of one hundred thousand million atoms, far more complicated than any machine built by man and absolutely without parallel in the non-living world.

Abiogenesis is impossible

The Cell is  a Factory

Factories, full of machines and production lines and computers, originate from intelligent minds. No exception.
Biological cells are like a industrial park of various interconnected factories, working in conjunction.
Factory is from Latin, and means fabricare, or make. Produce, manufacture. And that's PRECISELY what cells do. They produce other cells through self-replication, through complex machine processing, computing etc. 
Therefore, they had most probably a mind as a causal agency. 
The claim is falsified and topped, once someone can demonstrate  a factory that can self-assemble, without the requirement of intelligence. 

Know-how is required to create a language, a code system, translation systems, an information storage device, and use it to store a blueprint to make complex factories, machines and production lines, which depend on a minimal number of parts, which by their own IMHO have no function, to get a useful product. Hardware, software, factories, full of machines and production lines, have only been observed to originate from inventive, goal oriented intelligent minds. No exception.

Organic Production Systems: What the Biological Cell Can Teach Us About Manufacturing

Biological cells run complicated and sophisticated production systems. The study of the cell’s production technology provides us with insights that are potentially useful in industrial manufacturing. When comparing cell metabolism with manufacturing techniques in the industry, we find some striking commonalities assures quality at the source, and uses component commonality to simplify production.  The organic production system can be viewed as a possible scenario for the future of manufacturing. We try to do so in this paper by studying a high-performance manufacturing system - namely, the biological cell. A careful examination of the production principles used by the biological cell reveals that cells are extremely good at making products with high robustness, flexibility, and efficiency. Section 1 describes the basic metaphor of this article, the biological cell as a production system, and shows that the cell is subject to similar performance pressures. Section 4 further deepens the metaphor by pointing out the similarities between the biological cell and a modern manufacturing system. We then point to the limits of the metaphor in §5 before we identify, in §6, four important production principles that are sources of efficiency and responsiveness for the biological cell, but that we currently do not widely observe in industrial production. For example, the intestinal bacterium, Escherichia coli,  runs 1,000–1,500 biochemical reactions in parallel. Just as in manufacturing, cell metabolism can be represented by flow diagrams in which raw materials are transformed into final products in a series of operations. 

With its thousands of biochemical reactions and high number of flow connections, the complexity of the cell’s production flow matches even the most complex industrial production networks we can observe today.  The performance pressures operating on the cell’s production system also exhibit clear parallels with manufacturing. Both production systems need to be fast, efficient, and responsive to environmental changeSpeed and range of response, as well as efficiency of its production systems, are clearly critical to the biological cell. Biologists have made the argument that the evolution of the basic structure of modern cells has largely been driven by “alimentary efficiency,” or the input-output efficiency of turning available nutrients into energy and basic building blocks. In addition, it is clear that in dynamic environments, the ability of the cell to react quickly and decisively is vital to ensure survival and reproduction.  Given the “manufacturing” nature of cell biochemistry and the comparable performance pressures on it, one should not be surprised to find interesting solutions developed by the cell that are applicable in manufacturing—especially since “cell technology” is much older and more mature than any human technology. The cell never forecasts demand; it achieves responsiveness through speed, not through inventories.

The limits to responsiveness depend only on the capacity limits of the enzymes in a particular pathway. The corresponding mechanism in manufacturing is referred to as a pull system. It produces only in response to actual demand, not in anticipation of forecast demand, thus preventing overproduction. While it is difficult to make direct comparisons with manufacturing plants, some case examples illustrate that the cell operates with little waste, even in regulating its pathways. In a U.S. electric-connectors factory in the early 1990s, 28.6% of plant labor was devoted to control and materials handling, while the figure was 14.9% in a simpler and leaner Japanese plant. In a house-care products plant, a cost analysis revealed that at least 14% of production costs were incurred by production planning and quality assurance. With its 11% of regulatory genes, the cell seems to set a pretty tight benchmark for regulation efficiency. The cell also uses quality-management techniques used in manufacturing today. The cell invests in defect prevention at various stages of its replication process, using 100% inspection processes, quality assurance procedures, and foolproofing techniques. An example of the cell inspecting each and every part of a product is DNA proofreading. As the DNA gets replicated, the enzyme DNA polymerase adds new nucleotides to the growing DNA strand, limiting the number of errors by removing incorrectly incorporated nucleotides with a proofreading function. An example of quality assurance can be found in the use of helper proteins, also called “chaperones.” These make sure that newly produced proteins fold themselves correctly, which is critical to their proper functioning. Finally, as an example of foolproofing, the cell applies the key-lock principle to guarantee a proper fit between substrate and enzyme, i.e., product and machine. The substrate fits into a pocket of the enzyme like a key into a lock, ensuring that only one particular substrate can be processed.

This is comparable with poka-yoke systems in manufacturing. An everyday example of poka-yoke is the narrow opening for an unleaded gasoline tank in a car. It prevents you from inserting the larger leaded fuel nozzle. The cell’s pathways are designed in such a way that different end products often share a set of initial common steps (as is shown in Figure 2). For example, in the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids, a number of common precursors are synthesized before the pathway splits into different final products.  A final concern is that the biological cell is the result of evolution, not design. Consider the cell’s technology, which stabilized about two billion years ago. Interestingly, the intermediates used for “products” and “machines” (enzymes) are identical. In other words, the cell can easily degrade an enzyme into its component amino acids and use these amino acids to synthesize a new enzyme (a “machine”), replenish the central metabolism, or make another molecule (a “product”), e.g., a biogenic amine. It seems an amazing achievement by the cell to build the complexity and variety of life with such a small number of components. Imagine that all industrial machines were made of only 20 different modules, corresponding to the 20 amino acids from which all proteins are made. As we further explain below, this modular approach allows the cell to be remarkably efficient and responsive at the same time.

Basically, with both products and machines being built from just a few recyclable components, the cell can efficiently produce an enormous variety of products in the appropriate quantities when they are needed.  At any moment, synthesis and breakdown for each enzyme happen in the cell. The constant renewal eliminates the need for other types of “machine maintenance.” Assembly and disassembly of the cell’s machines are so fast and frictionless that they allow a scheme of constant machine renewal.  The cell has pushed this principle even further. First, it does not even wait until the machine fails, but replaces it long before it has a chance to break down. And second, it completely recycles the machine that is taken out of production. The components derived from this recycling process can be used not only to create other machines of the same type, but also to create different machines if that is what is needed in the “plant.” This way of handling its machines has some clear advantages for the cell. New capacity can be installed quickly to meet current demand. At the same time, there are never idle machines around taking up space or hogging important building blocks. Maintenance is a positive “side effect” of the continuous machine renewal process, thereby guaranteeing the quality of output. Finally, the ability to quickly build new production lines from scratch has allowed the cell to take advantage of a big library of contingency plans in its DNA that allow it to quickly react to a wide range of circumstances.
