On the origin of the first cell; some of the biology literature states that the first cell arose through enclosure of long chains of macromolecules by a phospholipid bilayer. Biologically speaking, I would like to argue that we are making it sound way too complex. Truth is simple. The origin of the first cell is self and there never was, is, nor ever will be any cell (self) division but rather a cell (self) veiling of sorts for the purpose of cell (self) companionship. In conclusion. It would not be scientifically incorrect to state that the fundamental purpose of self, why self is diverse, is companionship more commonly known as love. Short and sweet? The meaning of life is love.
