DAVID: I know you are trying to defend your pet theory of an operating cellular intelligence, which is only an interpretation. What Shapiro talks about is the cells' ability to alter DNA and reprogram, and I totally agree with that.

dhw: Do you really want me to go on reproducing the quotes from Shapiro himself (deploring “large organisms chauvinism”), McClintock, Margulis, Buehler? Cellular intelligence is an interpretation extrapolated from their lifetime studies of the subject. And your view is also “only an interpretation”.

DAVID: I'm sure you noted the portion of my statement of what I agree with Shapiro about?

dhw: Ah, a possible misunderstanding, then. When you wrote: “What Shapiro talks about is the cells’ ability…” you actually meant you agree with him when he talks about the cells’ ability. You simply ignored what he talks about when he talks about cellular intelligence!;-)

You've got it.
