"Being alive does not merely consist in being composed in a particular way. It consists in changing in a particular way." -Terrence Deacon
The 2019 book Awareness and Life by philosopher Dwight Harris reveals the ultimate computational and emergentistic underpinnings of biological life.
Awareness is the self processing of information. In his book Awareness and Life: The Ontological Distinction of Biological Life, philosopher of biology Dwight Harris gives us his take on the computational nature and emergent complexity of biological life. Behind the nondescript cover, you’ll find incredibly illuminating content. Although written in what many consider technical but exact academic language and in scholarly paper format, the treatise will colorify your imagination with its profound and lucid revelations delivered in very manageable chunks with outlined text and summaries of points made, referenced and cross-referenced, filled with plenty of illustrations and diagrams.

A semi-synthetic organism was created and proved to be stable in the lab in La Jolla, California
Researchers have extended their efforts to create and optimize a semi-synthetic organism (SSO) using analogues to DNA and RNA. Previously, the team of scientists, led by Aaron W. Feldman of The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, California, reported the creation of a SSO that had maintained an ‘unnatural’ base pair (UBP) in its DNA. Efficiently transcribing synthetic messenger RNAs, the organism was able to produce proteins that contained ‘noncanonical’ amino acids, or amino acids outside the list of natural proteins produced by biological life.
