There are a number of ideas kicking about regarding how Life, and living cells first started. One intriguing idea suggests that the bubbles. micelles, vesicles and other microenvironments formed by surfactants and amphiphiles created the protected environment needed for proteins to assemble and fold, and for RNA and DNA to work their replicating magic.

A small enough bubble or container is also more likely to contain an enantiomeric excess of chiral molecules.

Some odd little notions on prebiological “proto-life” form the structure and theme of “Origins of Species”. Nothing is to scale, neither absolute nor relative scale. But there IS a bit of chirality.

The Title is a bit of a riff on Darwin’s “Origin of Species”. Instead of describing the variations within Life, and the Biology of diversity, we look back a bit further and try to imagine the underlying and unifying Physics behind living organisms.
