Nature has a way to heal itself... man is too proud to even learn this from Nature...plants have... animals have...they never discover by trying and testing on humans...then find ways and means to recycle their discovers putting lives in danger. Giving more hope to the greedy and paving a way for disaster...its simple. They respect life.. Are parts of the very ALIVE world. Humble to let life take control.. Yet are free... they never cover up their mistakes.. They accept life as it is.

May nature be our guide..

They'll always be discovering ''new species of bacteria'' in the Titanic. As long as she stays ''frozen in time'' at the bottom of the ocean, there will always be some new growth, new bacteria, new ''rusticles'' to discover. And ocean life adds to that discovery. Thanks Anna!

Bacteria can do just about anything except disobey the laws of thermodynamics.
