Today, the novel coronavirus is forcing us to create new ways of functioning as a society, but viruses also cast ripples through the established definitions of life. However viruses have survived on Earth for far longer than we humans. Although this project is quite far from actual bioscience, the primitive life forms that live on within the natural environment of the human body in contemporary society where genetic engineering has developed, they have taken on new shapes and wisdom, similar to eukaryotes, these neo primitive organisms are vigorously coming to life within my imagination.
