Quantum mechanics says that particles must be described as small smears of
probability , not as points with perfectly defined locations . This is , in fact , why
the atoms and molecules in the simulations felt so soft and smooth : their
The next point , however , is that molecular manufacturing is different in every
detail and different in overall structure : compare the nanocomputers , assembler
arms , and conveyor belts described above to the shaggy , seething living cell ...
In this scenario , someone first invests considerable engineering effort in
designing and building devices almost exactly like the one just described :
bacterialsized , omnivorous , able to survive in a wide range of natural
environments , able to ...
