Nature is the greatest engineer of all. It needs no funding except for a bit of water and sun. Nature needs no laws except for a bit of space and time, and nature needs no attention for it is more farsighted through all its experience then all our shortsightedness in our lifespan. We will be forever the appendix in the system of nature trying to be the king.
